Mushfiqur Rahim believes Bangladesh have gained sufficient momentum after their historic five-wicket win over Sri Lanka, who now have an eye on going all the way in the Nidahas Cup.
“In this short format momentum is crucial,” he said on Monday (March 12). “I hope we can carry on with it in our next two matches as we have got confidence back,” before adding that there was no option of getting carried away with that one win. They needed to start their preparations to make it count.
“I don’t like lot of noise [appreciation and lofty talks] after just one win. The wicket was good to bat and someone will be able to play such a knock. When you are playing for 13 years it is natural that you will make improvement. I just want to return what cricket has given me with my performance,” he added.
Lastly, the 30-year-old, lauded the batting unit, but said that if Bangladesh are to beat India in their next match, it was their bowling that needed to fire from all cylinders considering their batting unit is looking to get back their true form.
“We have to bowl well against India. They are a strong side but if we can bowl well we can surely count on our chances against them,” he concluded.
