Shakib, Mushfiq eye ‘Banglawash’

With one more match to go against India and the Tigers in peak of their form, Bangladesh cricketers are eyeing for a 3-0 whitewash at the home series.

Excited after the series win, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal and Nasir Hossain have all gone public with their hopes for a “Banglawash”.

Captain Mashrafe Mortaza has kept him calm though, as seen mostly through the series even under a lot of gossip spreading around, and refrained from opining on this issue.

“The Tigers will descend on the field as victors tomorrow for the 3rd and final Battle Royal!” Shakib said on his Facebook fan page post ahead of tomorrow’s final ODI match.

“2 down, 1 more to go! Let's make it 3-0! In Sha Allah!” Mushfiq said to his fans on Facebook attached with a photo of “Banglawash”.

Dashing left-handed opener Tamim Iqbal hoped on his official Facebook page that the form of Tigers will continue after Bangladesh’s 10th consecutive wins at home.

Nasir Hossain, who refuses to miss out on expressing his excitement at the prospect, said: “2 down, 1 more to go! Let's make it 3-0! In Sha Allah! Go Tiger Go Red n Green!”

This was the first ever series win against India, and that too at home, for Bangladesh. If the Tigers win tomorrow, it will be the consecutive “Banglawash” series at home after Pakistan.
