Mushfiq’s form worries Selectors
CRICDOT DESK :Liton Das was dropped from the T20 squad after a poor performance in the World Cup. After the BPL, he played well against the Afghans in the ODI format. He is sure to return to the T20 XI again. The question is, who will form a partnership with him?
Will Naeem Sheikh, who failed to meet the expectations in the World Cup and did badly in the BPL, survive in the XI? Will Munim Shahriar make his debut in BPL? Or will Nazmul Shant, who could not give his best in the BPL and play in the middle order, be included in the XI for right-handed-left-arm coordination?
Tiger T20 captain Mahmudullah did not give the answer in the pre-match press conference. Asked about Munim, who has scored 16 runs at a strike rate of 152.13 in that match in the BPL, the captain said, “He has a good chance to make his debut. But I can’t say right now whether he will play or not. You have to decide based on the wicket. ‘
On the other hand, Naeem Sheikh, who failed in BPL, spoke as a shield for the captain. BPL and national team are not one. I wanted him to play in three because of the coordination of the team in BPL. As the match went deep, he had to go down to different positions. However, Mahmudullah clarified that he has been taken as the opener in the Afghan series. He said that he also has the potential to play.
Mushfiqur Rahim was dropped from the squad for the Pakistan series after the World Cup. He is back in the squad for the T20 series against the Afghans. Will Mushfiqur get his place back in the XI? BPL did not go bad. The team management may not walk the path of humiliation by putting a senior like Mushi on the bench. But before the World Cup in Australia, the new start will be the old twist?
