Mahedi had faith in his ability

Before the start of the ongoing Bangabandhu T20 Cup, many fans had an assumption that the Rajshahi based franchise, Minister Group Rajshahi was a comparatively weak team. However, they proved them wrong in the very first game of the tournament as the side registered victory against the title aspirant Beximco Dhaka in the opener.

All-rounder Mahedi Hasan played a crucial role with both the bat and ball in his team’s victory. Batting first, Minister Group Rajshahi posted 169 runs on the scoreboard after 20 overs, thanks to Nurul Hasan and Mahedi who added 89 runs in the sixth wicket stand. Mahedi scored 52 off just 32 balls.

Chasing 170, Beximco Dhaka was almost home but Mahedi came up with a match-winning last over to help his side start off the tournament with a victory.

Meanwhile, Mahedi said he had faith in himself while bowling the last over that helped him to be successful in such a pressure situation.

“Firstly, I had enough faith in myself. Secondly, the captain also had faith in me. He asked me to bowl the last over from that faith. Everyone on the team had been believing that we would win. I have been able to do what I wanted. Deliveries had been as I expected them to be,” he said.

The all-rounder also said that felt lucky after being able to contribute to the team. He added, “The Inaugural of the tournament has been good for us. Today was the first match and it started as expected. It always feels great to be awarded Man of the Match. So it is the same with me too. I feel lucky to be able to contribute to the team with both the bat and ball.”

“I will know the game plan for the next match the day before that match. It is not possible to do well without a proper game plan. Of course, we have to play according to the game plan,” Mahedi concluded.
