Fizz is the X-factor for Bangladesh
Former Australian cricketer Mike Hussey acknowledged Bangladesh’s left-arm pacer Mustafizur Rahman as the x-factor for his team during the Champions Trophy at England.
“Mustafizur Rahman is a serious x-factor player for Bangladesh. He’s battled injury in the past year but if he can get up to full fitness he will be a huge asset for Bangladesh,” said Hussey to cricket.com.au
“Shakib has been a class player for a long period of time. Tamim Iqbal is a good player at the top of the order and getting better as he gets older and more experienced. They’ve got some good players, no question.” Hussey explained.
“The thing for them is how will they cope with the English conditions? They’re very good in subcontinental conditions but playing in England can be a lot different.”
