Bangabandhu T20 Cup
Chattogram determined despite Mominul blow
High flying Gazi Group Chattogram suffered a huge blow as Mominul Haque is ruled out from ongoing Bangabandhu T20 for suffering injury.
‘’Yes he is ruled out from the tournament for fracturing his index finger of right hand. We had an x-ray and there was fracture and as it will take at least four to six weeks to heal we have ruled him out of the competition,’’ Chattogram’s team physio Enamul Haque confirmed reporters on Sunday.
Despite the absence of Mominul, Chattogram looked to be in jovial mood during their training session though last match hero Liton Kumar Das and Mustafizur Rahman did not came for the training session.
‘’I think we will continue to play aggressive brand of cricket,’’ Chattogram left-arm spinner Taijul Islam told reporters at the BCB academy premises ahead of their next game.
Taijul credited their bowling unit for coming up with an unified effort that helped them bundle out star-studded Khulna and Dhaka inside 100 runs but added batsmen also played their part perfectly.
‘’I think it is not only the bowlers who are doing well but we must also give credit to our batsmen because earning nine wicket win(in both games) is a big achievement,’’ said Taijul.
‘’Definitely the bowlers are doing well because picking four wickets for five runs( Mustafizur) is certainly a huge achievement and certainly we must continue to deliver in this manner,’’ he said.
Barishal skipper Tamim Iqbal returned to form with a scintillating half-century against Minister Rajshahi and according to the skipper this win will help them boost their confidence.
‘’So far two games have taken place. The senior players you are talking about – are quality players and soon will bounce back. I believe with their experience, they will soon get back in their zone,’’ said Tamim.
‘’It was important for me to play big innings. I failed to score big in recent past so I feel happy to play a knock like this as it helped the team to win,’’ he said.
‘’Usually, night games do have a dew factor and spinners face issues with that to grip the ball. When their spinners were bowling in the latter half, we felt difficulties in batting as well. Our four pacers did really well. We had some plans before the game which we executed quite well and this is the most important thing. I am happy with the bowlers as everyone contributed well,’’ he added.
