Tamim praises Mashrafe’s dedication
Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal credited Mashrafe bin Mortaza’s dedication towards the game for his success in emerging as the highest wicket-taker in a Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League season. Veteran right-arm pacer Mashrafe Monday made it to the record book, picking up 38 List A wickets in 15 matches. Left-arm pacer Abu Haider Rony’s 35 scalps for Gazi Group Cricketers in the 2017 season was the previous best by a Bangladeshi in List A cricket. Mashrafe, playing for table-topper Abahani Limited, will take to the field for the last time this season Thursday when they take on Legends of Rupganj at BKSP. Tamim praised Mashrafe for his commitment, despite nearing the end of his career.

“It is not easy to perform in such manner, given he is approaching the end of his long career. This proves how serious he is about the domestic league. It would not have been possible to record the feat if he had given even a little less effort. His achievement should be a huge inspiration to those who idolises Mashrafe and wants to bowl for the national team someday,” said Tamim to the media at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka Tuesday. Bangladesh ODI captain Mashrafe before taking the field for his 15th game Monday was only a wicket away from the feat. The right-arm pacer dismissed Khelaghar Samaj Kalyan Samity opener Robiul Islam Robi in the fifth over in Mirpur to surpass Rony’s record.
