Bangladeshi wicketkeeper-batsman, Mushfiqur Rahim, may not be considered as a star player in this World Cup, but he is no less superior compared to Brendon McCullum and Kumar Sangakkara for his team’s progress.
Both Brendon McCullum and Kumar Sangakkara are vital players for their teams. They play a crucial role behind their teams’ success. The diminutive Bangladeshi wicketkeeper may not be doing as same with the bat like them, but he is playing a very crucial role for his team’s progress.
Scoring 167 runs in three innings, he has established himself as Bangladesh’s top scorer in the tournament. It suggests that he is equally central to his team’s luck.
In their first World Cup match against Afghanistan, the 26-year-old right-handed batsman scored the highest run for his team and became the man-of-the-match after his side’s 105-run win at Canberra. He also played a very important role in his team’s second victory in the tournament against Scotland on Thursday. Even he played a quick 36-run innings in the match where Bangladesh lost to Sri Lanka.
Bangladesh is in fourth place in Pool A. They will take on England in their next match on March 9. If they can beat England, they will secure their place in the next round.
