Mushfiqur Rahim’s antics get viral yet again, as Bangladesh wins series
Mushfiqur Rahim continues to be the mainstay of Bangladesh’s batting with consistent performances. The diminutive wicketkeeper-batsman scored another sublime 125 runs to set up another big win for Bangladesh in their 2nd ODI match against Srilanka which gave the hosts their first-ever ODI series win over the islanders.
However, Rahim had the knack of drawing attention for his antics. A committed but very hot-headed cricketer, he tends to get very hyper on the field at times. In a match several months ago, Rahim almost shaped to hit his own teammate as he came in his way to take a skier. Again on this day, he was in the limelight for the wrong reason.
Mushfiqur Rahim’s antics get viral yet again, as Bangladesh wins series. The talented Bangladeshi off-spinner Mehdi Hasan Miraj was bowling to Gunathilaka. As well as, the batter stroked on the on side Miraj went across past an advancing non-striker Nissanka (who was backing up for a possible run) to dive and stop the ball after which Rahim was clearly heard saying in local language from behind the stumps, ” Push and drop him (non-striker) on the ground if he comes your way “.
The above act went viral on social media and Rahim was criticise by the fans. Thus his stellar deeds with the bat got overshadowed by his overdoing of passion.
Mushfiqur now really needs to look at this aspect of his game. Control his passion levels to avoid possible penalties.
