On-song Mazid keeping it simple
Bangladesh Cricket Board XI opening batsman Abdul Mazid smashed a brilliant century against the visiting England team in their two-day practice match at MA Aziz Stadium in Chittagong on Sunday. This is the third time a Bangladesh batsman scored a century in a tour match against England after Nafees Iqbal and Raqibul Hasan. Nafees, elder brother of Tigers opener Tamim Iqbal, scored 118 at BKSP in 2003 while Raqibul posted in Chittagong six years ago. Nafees played 11 Tests for Bangladesh while Raqibul went on to feature in nine Tests before retiring relatively early at the age of 23. On Sunday, Mazid was on song from the very beginning and played some delightful shots during his memorable ton. He eventually registered 106 from 95 deliveries with 16 boundaries and a six.

I played according to the merit of the ball. England bowlers bowled in very good areas throughout the day. But probably I was lucky to receive maximum number of loose deliveries. I was thus able to score quickly and play many scoring shots compared to the other batsmen,” said Mazid. Mazid believes his century against the visiting side will help raise his confidence level. “This kind of practice match is important for players like us. Certainly the innings will help me a lot to improve myself more for the next phase. I just want to concentrate on scoring runs in the domestic arena. And when the selectors think that I am good enough to play for the national side then the opportunity will come. Now my job is to score more runs and concentrate on performing better. That’s what I am trying do,” he said.
