Mushfiqur expects better outing from his men

Beximco Dhaka captain Mushfiqur Rahim is hopeful his men will turn up better in their next outing against Chattogram.

Mushfiqur Rahim and Muktar Ali celebrate a wicket.


Dhaka succumbed a narrow 2-run defeat against Minister Group Rajshahi in the opening match of Bangabandhu T20 Cup 2020. Muktar Ali’s last blast of 27* runs could not rescue Dhaka.

Mushfiqur top-scored for Dhaka with 41 runs. Akbar Ali made impressive 34 runs. Naim Sheikh threw away a good start scoring 26 runs. Dhaka skipper would have liked a bigger total from the batsmen.

“Look, it’s difficult to judge on the first game. I think the start was good. It’s very difficult to win a T20 match if batsmen score 30-40 runs only. Had one of the set batsmen scored 60 or 70-plus, the match would have been in our hands,” Mushfiqur said at the post-match press conference.

“I’m really happy everyone got good starts. It’s really a good sign that everyone is in good touch. I hope the in-form batsmen can make big scores in the next match.”

Dhaka bowlers made a good impact with the ball in first half of Rajshahi’s innings. The latter half went for plenty which set Rajshahi’s total to 169/9. Mushfiqur expects a better execution in the next game against Gazi Group Chattogram.

“As far as bowling is concerned, the execution was a bit here and there. I guess this is because of the nerves or lack of confidence in the first match. This can happen to any team – experienced or inexperienced. We will try not to commit mistakes in the next match,” Mushfiqur added.
