We dont have any ‘Pandav’ in our dictionary: Nafisa Kamal
CRICDOT DESK : Bangladesh fans have witnessed another glorious final as the final is like the final. It can be described In one word incredible match. In the last over, the fans of both the teams were in a state of suffocation due to the tension.
Comilla Victorians captain Imrul Kayes was also sweating on the winter night. On the other hand, Fortune Barisal captain Shakib Al Hasan stood at the door of the dressing room anxiously.
The last smile appeared on the face of Imrul Kayes. Nafisa Kamal, the owner of the team, burst into tears when the dam broke. Comilla won the title by walking a little different way. Mashrafe, Tamim, Shakib, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur – the franchise did not take anyone from Panchpandab.
Nafisa reminded him of that after winning the title for the third time on Friday night. He said, the joy of this victory is a little more. Because the team has become the average champion with the youngsters without the Panchpandavas.
In response to a question from the media, Nafisa Kamal said, “I wanted to make a revolution this time. We wanted to build a young team. But there was no Pandava in our team. I wanted these three or five Pandavas to come out and give leadership to the newcomers. There were three Pandavas in one team (Minister in Dhaka) and one in the runners-up team. As a result, it is a great pleasure for us to be champions without so many Pandavas. ‘
Nafisa added, ‘What is Pandava? There is no Pandava in our dictionary. Are you still talking about Pandava? Even after today? We are like a family. How to run with superstars outside the family? Family comes first, superstar later. Superstars are a bonus for the team. In fact, our goal was to have foreigners with experience in franchise cricket. We get very little time in BPL. You have to make a family in a month. ‘
Mashrafe bin Mortuza, one of the five Pandavas, was the captain of Comilla in the 2015 edition of BPL. Comilla won the title for the first time under his leadership.
Imrul Kayes was the captain in 2019. Under his leadership, the franchise took home the service title. However, the credit for that victory goes to Tamim Iqbal, another soldier of Panchpandab. The dashing opener became the best in the match after playing a monstrous innings of 141 runs off 61 balls in the final.
