Mashrafe Mortaza is very impressed with how his young bower Mustafizur Rahman has carried himself after having a sensational first season in international Cricket.
According to Mortaza, the name and fame has not got Mustafizur fascinated at all and he is just enjoying his game.
The rookie left arm seam bowler destroyed the powerful batting line ups of India and South Africa on the home pitches in back-to-back One Day International series in 2015.
His exploits brought him in the limelight in the Cricketing world as he even managed to earn a contract in the Indian Premier League.
Mustafizur’s slower balls and cutters which he disguised with expertise caught a lot of accomplished players in awkward positions.
Most of the wickets that he got were the soft dismissals and that’s because the batsmen were finding it almost impossible to pick his variations.
However, as nobody had played him at that time, it all came as an element of surprise, but, it would be slightly tougher for Mustafizur from here onwards as the batsmen would be better prepared to take him on.
Mortaza, however, believes that Mustafizur is blessed with outstanding skills and he is capable of catching the batsmen short even if they had been totally prepared to counter him.
Speaking before Bangladesh’s first Asia Cup match against India, the skipper said, “Rather than being concerned about the stature of the batsman or what he might be thinking, Mustafiz just does his own stuff and he is pretty good at that. So, regardless of whatever strategy the opposition comes up with, he might still come out on top.”
“He is someone who is pretty sorted out on his head despite the fact that he is very young. No outside factor is distracting him.”
