Mushfiqur Rahman applauds bowlers' toil
Mushfiqur Rahim on Mustafizur Rahman: He has realised that to get Test wickets, you have to keep bowling well, keep up the pressure. By continuing in this way, he will be successful in both formats
Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim has said he was astonished by the order indicated via seamer Mohammad Shahid, and adulated Mustafizur Rahman's capacity to adjust to Test cricket rapidly. Mushfiqur included the seven batsman/four bowler mix paid profits in the Chittagong Test.
Shahid hung 50 speck balls consecutively from his 6th to his fourteenth over on the first day, a spell that fixed the screws on South Africa. With legspinner Jubair Hossain assaulting from the flip side, the breaks started to show up. From 104 for 1 with Dean Elgar and Faf du Plessis at the wrinkle after lunch, the guests drooped to 248 full scale before the day's over and Bangladesh had seized control of the Test.
Shahid went wicketless, albeit two gets were dropped in the slips off his knocking down some pins. Mushfiqur felt his endeavors merited better compensate: "I was without a doubt shocked [by the seven maidens]. I haven't seen numerous bowlers on the planet dish like that on such a level wicket. You need to give Shahid acknowledgment for knocking down some pins as per an arrangement. He was likewise unfortunate yet we trust that in the following diversion we can take those risks and back him up.
"Shahid has been knocking down some pins well since his presentation. It is difficult to clutch your structure, particularly in the spinner-accommodating wickets in our nation. In the event that the pace bowlers can furnish us with a few early wickets, spinners can bolster them in every diversion. The entire rocking the bowling alley assault improves and that is the thing that any commander would need."
The knocking down some pins assault was likewise made wealthier by the expansion of Mustafizur, the in-structure left-arm speedy. He took three wickets in four balls - Hashim Amla, JP Duminy and Quinton de Kock - flipped around the match and was named Man of the Match. Mustafizur turned into the first cricketer in history to win that honor on both Test and ODI debut.
"A left-arm seamer can assume an essential part in a knocking down some pins assault," Mushfiqur said. "Mustafizur is presently in great structure. The more up to date players in the South Africa group are experiencing difficulty confronting him. I trust he proceeds with this structure in the second Test.
"Mustafizur himself has said that it is less demanding to take wickets in ODIs than in Tests. Also, when the pitch is not useful, it turns out to be significantly harder. Test batsmen will handle his varieties, yet the good thing is he is a speedy learner.
"He has understood that to get Test wickets, you need to continue playing great, keep up the weight. By proceeding thusly, he will be effective in both arrangements. He can keep up a decent strike-rate."
Bangladesh's solid show in the Chittagong Test implied Mushfiqur needed to keep playing seven batsmen and four bowlers. With the No. 1 positioned allrounder Shakib Al Hasan among the XI, they adequately have seven batsmen and five bleeding edge playing choices. Unexpectedly, it was that extravagance that made Bangladesh run in with eight batsmen already, putting undue strain on Shakib.
"This can be viewed as the best blend, in the event that you see the outcome," Mushfiqur said. "On the off chance that you are discussing the best groups on the planet, they likewise play with a seven-batsman and four-bowler blend.
"Both batsmen and bowlers have done well. Yet, in the event that condition requests, we can play eight batsmen and three bowlers. Really it relies on upon players' structure and group execution. On this wicket against South Africa, this was our best mix,"
Mushfiqur was satisfied with how well his unpracticed knocking down some pins assault adhered to the pre-match arrange and said they merit a more drawn out rope.
"We attempted to ease off the run-rate when we don't get early wickets. Shahid, Mustafizur and Taijul knocked down some pins extremely well. The bowlers have done well in this Test match. Whether we get wickets or not, we need to bowl along these lines. But Shakib, every one of the bowlers have played under five Tests. They require a touch of time after which I am certain they will do well."
