Rangpur Rangers head coach Mark O’Donnell hopes their fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman would shrug off his poor form to come all guns blazing in the upcoming Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League (BBPL), reports BSS.Rangpur who drafted Mustafizur in their team as a ‘A category’ player will take on Cumilla Warriors in their opening match on Wednesday, when the tournament proper of the BBPL would roll on to the ground.
Mustafizur whose recent form created a massive headache for the team management following his poor performance in the three-match T20 series against India was seen to engage himself in intense practice session.
He particularly focused on to hone his Yorker, something which badly needed to be sharpened to thrive in shortest format of the cricket.
Not only that his wicket-taking ability with his trademark cutter, slower or Yorker was diminished, but also he leaked runs in abundance to make him an ordinary bowler in recent time.
Mark O’Donnell said with the experience Mustafizur gained in the past, he still could be handy and that he is working hard to regain his rhythm was the testament of his desire to hit back to the form.
New Zealand-born O’Donnell who replaced Grant Flowers as the coach of Rangpur Rangers, supervised the team’s practice for the first time on Monday.
