Mashrafe had to answer a question made by a foreign agency about his role in the playing eleven and why he had not completed his ten-over-quota in the first two games

Bangladesh captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza admitted that criticism will arise when a player doesn’t perform for a few matches at the top level but vows to come back strongly in the upcoming matches.

Mashrafe failed to pick any wickets in the first two matches in the World Cup against South Africa and New Zealand but took one against England. Mashrafe bowled six and five overs respectively, in his first two games without any success.

Mashrafe remained wicket-less in his last two matches in the tri-nation series against Ireland and West Indies. But prior to that, he took three wickets each in the previous two games and was adjudged player of the match in the first match of the tri-nation series against West Indies.

Even in the pre-match press conference, Mashrafe had to answer a question made by a foreign agency about his role in the playing eleven and why he had not completed his ten-over-quota in the first two games. Tigers’ skipper answered it and explained the situation why spinners were bowled in those matches.

When the question about the criticism on him for not performing well was asked, Mashrafe informed that such criticism is expected as a professional and that, he is working hard to get back among wickets.    

“I am not frustrated at all. As a professional player and a performer, it is quite obvious to face such questions if you are not performing or are not able to give your best performance for three-four matches. You have to accept it. In the first two matches, all the pacers went for six-seven runs per over. Our spinners were more useful in those wickets and conditions. That’s why I did not complete my ten overs. In the last match, I was required to bowl and eventually I bowled ten overs. I was okay until eight-nine overs but conceded ten runs in the last over,” said Mashrafe.

“Ultimately, I expect a lot more from me. I like to contribute for my team and win matches. So when that doesn’t happen, I ask myself about my own performance. If I am not able to perform well, then what I am thinking is more important to me rather than what people are saying,” said the Bangladesh skipper.
