Star-studded MSC start against Usha

The start-studded Mohammedan Sporting Club will once again bank on striker Rasel Mahmud Jimmy when they face Usha Krira Chakra in the final of Dhaka Bank Independence Cup Hockey tournament at the Maulana Bhasani Hockey Stadium today.
The game starts at 3:00pm.
National striker Jimmy was the chief architect of Mohammedan's all three victories including the semifinal after scoring a total of 13 goals including two hat-tricks. The big-budgeted Black and Whites, who scored a total of 21 goals in three games, will rely on Jimmy to bring their season's first trophy home.
Mohammedan this season spent a lot of money to rope in Jimmy and penalty corner specialist Chayan giving away record money of Tk 6.5 lakh each.
Apart from the duo, they also signed up five more national players who are set to play the AHF Cup in April wearing the red and green jersey.
“I am confident to present the title to the club. As a team we have been improving match by match and I hope we will carry our good form into the final and win the game against Usha,” said Jimmy, who struck a double hat-trick against Bangladesh Police.
The striker, however, doesn't want to feel complacent thinking of the previous results, rather he is more cautious about the opponents, Usha KC.
“Usha KC are comprised of some experienced and young players, who are seemingly more fit than us and there is no room to take them lightly,” warned Jimmy.
Usha KC manager Rafiqul Islam Kamal also vowed to take the trophy home.
“Mohammedan are a strong side but they have also some weaknesses and we are working on those points and if our boys can play accordingly, they will leave the turf with heads held high,” said the former national striker.
