Bangladesh all-rounder Mehedi Hasan Miraz feels that the victory against India in the last Super 4 fixture of the Asia Cup will boost their confidence, going into next month’s World Cup.
Centurions of the game against Afghanistan Najmul Hossain Shanto and Mehedi Hasan Miraz entered their names on the Gaddafi Stadium honours board on Sunday.
Bangladesh all-rounder Mehedi Hasan Miraz said that he remains unfazed at the prospect of having to face Pakistan quick Shaheen Shah Afridi or any other bowler in the upcoming matches of the ongoing Asia Cup in Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
Najmul Hossain Shanto and Mehedi Hasan Miraz laid the platform for a huge score before the bowlers turned up with a spirited display to allow Bangladesh place one foot in the Asia Cup's Super Four stage as the Tigers won by 89 runs against Afghanistan on a batting-friendly wicket at Lahore's Gaddafi Stadium yesterday.
Mehedi Hasan Miraz made it count in just his second appearance as an opener in one-day cricket with an authoritative century against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup in Lahore yesterday.
“Look, obviously we all were shocked after the way Tamim bhai retired and it was unexpected for us. Since we had a break that day, we came for training the next day and we prepared individually for the game. But everyone felt bad after the incident. However, we planned for the game and prepared ourselves,” Miraz told the media after the game
The mantra for top cricketers in the world as they look to sustain success is a constant drive to develop new skills. There are innumerable instances of highly-talented players starting off their international career with a bang but failing to carry on for an extended period of time due to not improving their skills and becoming predictable. Modern technology has made things even harder, with opponents analysing even the slightest details and preparing accordingly.
Bangladesh all-rounder Mehedi Hasan Miraz who was named in the ICC Men's ODI Team of the Year for 2022 received his cap as the recognition from the governing body of World cricket on Monday.
