After spending almost two decades in the Test arena, Bangladesh is still considered to be one of the underdogs in international cricket. However, their recent surge in performances has instilled a sense of self-belief in the team and wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim reckons the South Asian nation has the potential to become one of the top six sides in the world.
In an interview, Mushfiqur reiterated the fact that they needed to put in a strong display away from home in order to uplift their current ranking in the format. He also bemoaned the coronavirus outbreak, which has led to the postponement of the important home series against Australia.
“Our concern is to do well outside the country. There are many big challenges ahead. The Test Championship is also a big challenge for us. We have the ability to come in the top six in Tests. If there’s no coronavirus, then there would be some important series at home,” Mushfiqur observed.
