Mustafizur Rahman’s lean patch in international cricket seems to have finally come to an end, after he returned tremendous figures of 4/43 against West Indies in the ongoing tri-nation series in Ireland. Picking up form at the right time for Bangladesh, Mustafizur’s pace bowling proved too hot for the Caribbean batsmen to handle.
Rediscovering his groove, the left-armer kept things tight with his dexterous variations and pitching it in the right channels. A terrific spell of bowling that allowed Bangladesh their second straight win over the familiar foes, Mustafizur’s cutters continued to outsmart the Windies batsmen.
The 23-year-old’s strong showing bolster’s Bangladesh’s chances for the upcoming World Cup, since the ‘Tigers’ were often criticized for their lack of depth in the pace department.
