Mushfiqur blames ‘poor batting’ for loss against Chattogram

After losing both of their first two matches, Beximco Dhaka have gone to the bottom of the points table of Bangabandhu T20 Cup 2020.

However, according to captain Mushfiqur Rahim, they shouldn’t be disappointed and come back strongly in their next matches. He also commented that anything could happen in T20.

In the first match, Dhaka lost to Minister Group Rajshahi. In their second match, they were beaten by Gazi Group Chattogram yesterday. In the match against Chattogram, Dhaka were all-out for only 88 runs.

Mushfiqur also didn’t give any excuses and said that it’s completely their own mistakes. No big partnerships and no proper partner for opener Naim Sheikh were the main reasons, said Mushfiqur.

“There are some positive aspects in today’s match too. Naim batted well. It was a different track. Still he batted well and played some great shots. But no one supported him. We will plan better in the next game hopefully and try to make it beneficial,” the wicket-keeper batsman said.

“Today’s wicket was actually a sporting wicket. We knew we would get some bounce in the first 2/3 overs like in the first match. It’s really good for bowlers. Because we see such wickets in T20 format. There was no problem with the wicket, maybe our playing approach…..,” he added.

33-year old Mushfiqur also said that that such a day may come in T20 cricket. So, he’s looking forward to the remaining six matches of the group stage without worrying about this match.

“All in all, I think such a day will come in T20. But we will try to find out the problems. We still have a few days ahead of us to correct the mistakes and make the plans work. We have six more matches in the group stage.

“Of course, whether you win or lose the match, it’s not the main matter. There are some places where we need to improve every day. Even in every practice session also. We will find and sort out these places. And we have to do it as a group, not individually. We won’t be able to change very much in the next three days probably. But we need to be more careful in shot selections. We have to work hard especially in batting,” Dhaka captain concluded.
