Rishad reaches the big stage

The inclusion of young Rishad Hossain in the equipment of the Bangladeshi Cup World T20 has become quite prescient, due to the type of actions that will be played for the national selection in the last bilateral series. In the embargo, guys from among the jugular veins take the form of a large tournament like the Copa del Mundo. It responded to a gunsmith action against Sri Lanka and finally brought the great escape.

Sri Lanka tenia 100/3 in the final of 14 overs by captain Nazmul Hossain Shanto who gave Rishad his tercer over. The leg-spinner brought Bangladesh back into the game by dismissing Charith Asalanka and Wanindu Hasaranga off consecutive balls and in the next over he put the final nail in the Sri Lanka batting order by dismissing Dhananjaya de Silva. Rishad showed the courage to provoke batsmen to attack him and had the last laugh with his turn, 3.6 degrees to be precise – the most by any spinner in this World Cup at Grand Prairie Stadium, surpassing Tim Pringle of the Netherlands (3.2), Shadab Khan of Pakistan (3.0) and Harmeet Singh of the USA (2.4). The 21-year-old, who took 3 for 22 against Sri Lanka, bowled fearlessly against both left-handed and right-handed batsmen. “When I go out to bowl I don’t look at anything like right or left-handed batsmen. When I go out to bowl I have to do what the team wants from me. I have no problem with right or left-handed batsmen,” Rishad said. “I don’t bowl out of fear.

Whenever I come to bowl, I always try to take wickets for the team. If I get a wicket, it will change the course of the game,” he said expressing his happiness on winning the Player of the Match award in his debut match in the World Cup. “Everything is fine, feeling really good. I became Man of the Match in the first World Cup match. Everything is feeling good together. I tried to understand what can happen on the wicket after bowling two or four balls and the rest is up to God’s will.” Nazmul said that he has full faith in Riyadh as he is well prepared and always wants to perform well. “I think he bowled exceptionally well and he has been doing so for the last few series. I like the way he prepares and practices, it is very good and we always struggle because we don’t have a leg spinner, and I think this gap has been filled. I hope he contributes in the same way in the coming matches. You can hit one or two boundaries, but there is a chance to take a wicket and that is what he tried. Whether it is a right-handed batsman or a left-handed batsman, it does not matter to him. So as a captain I wanted him to take one or two wickets and he did that,” Nazmul said.
