PERFORMER OF THE SERIES

MEHEDI HASAN

A 19-wicket haul in a two-match test series is any bowler's dream. And if the dream is realised by a 19-year-old debutant, thrown into the mix for his first taste of international cricket, it is an epic achievement. So a man-of-the-series award is no more than what he Mehedi Hasan Miraz has deserved. His achievement -- taking most number of wickets in a two-match Test match series by a Bangladeshi – was not unexpected either. An accomplished all-rounder and captain at age-level cricket, Miraz had shown his worth when he guided Bangladesh to a third-place finish in the ICC Under-19 World Cup at the beginning of this year, himself scoring 242 runs in six innings and picking up 12 wickets. And now with his first chance among the big boys, Miraz showed full repertoire of his off-spin skills, stifling the English batsmen with immaculate line and length, together with the turn. The all-rounder might have missed out with the willow, but it is just a matter of time before he shines in that department too.
