‘Fav Five’ is a myth, they can do better than us: Shakib Al Hasan
CRICDOT DESK : Bangladesh has spent a lot of time in Test cricket last year. However, Bangladesh started the first Test of the new year with a win against New Zealand. Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is very happy for such a great performance with the youth. Shakib spoke at a press conference organized by Apo on Friday (January 8).
Although many people think that Bangladesh cricket seniority has become dependent, this time the young team of Bangladesh has proved it wrong. Apart from captain Muminul Haque, veteran batsman Mushfiqur Rahim, wicketkeeper-batsman Liton Das and off spinning all-rounder Mehdi Hasan Miraj, no one else has the experience to play 20 Tests. And they have given a history-making performance.
Shakib likes such performances with youngsters. Shakib said at the press conference, ‘It must be a good thing. As the media always thinks, we are not players except four or five. So that is my proof. If they are given this responsibility, I believe they will do better in the future. ‘

Shakib said, ‘The way the year started is unbelievable. Every player on the team, the coaching staff has to give credit for this. The way everyone tried. Because our previous year did not go well. This year is a big challenge for us. It has been so good since the beginning. I hope I can do better in the future.
The two teams will take to the field for the second Test in Christchurch on Sunday (January 9). Shakib thinks that the green pitch is going to play a big role in the toss match of the second Test.
