India and Pakistan do not meet each other outside multi-nation tournaments and when they meet in a tournament as big as the Asia Cup, cricket fans around the world have their eyes glued to such fixtures. Officiating such fixtures that feature stars to light up any occasion and doing so without any controversy is a rare thing. Bangladesh’s Masudur Rahman did just that during this Asia Cup. He talked to The Daily Star’s Abdullah Al Mehdi on representing Bangladesh in such big matches and about other things. Excerpts of the interview are as follows:
