Bangladesh T20 skipper Mahmudullah said on Thursday that he is satisfied with the performance of three young players- Mohammad Naim, Mohammad Saifuddin- Mahedi Hasan- as their contribution helped them to seal their Super 12 spot in the ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Oman and UAE.

Youngsters like Afif Hossain, Mohammad Naim, Mahedi Hasan, Mohammad Saifuddin, Nurul Hasan are playing their maiden ICC World T20 and managed to draw the attention with their performances in the qualifiers in Oman.

Opener Naim, who was overlooked in the opening match against Scotland, made a noteworthy comeback by hitting a brilliant fifty against Oman while Mahedi and Saifuddin impressed everyone with a tight bowling spell.

Mahmudullah was all praise for opening batsman Mohammad Naim, spin all-rounder Mahedi Hasan and seamer Mohammad Saifuddin saying that they all showed impressive performance and played a vital role in all three matches in the qualifier stage.

“Saifuddin was impressive in all three matches with the ball. He even batted well against PNG. Mahedi is playing really well. Naim struck fifty in the first match. Their performance is a sign of positive aspect for us. I hope Naim will carry on his form. Saifuddin is doing well with the new ball as well as in death overs. Mahedi did too. These two guys (Mahedi and Saifuddin) were superb in all three matches. Their performances inspire us. I hope they will perform better in the Super 12s,” Mahmudullah told reporters after earning their win against PNG that helped them to book their berth in the Super12s with an 84-run win.
