Khulna captain Mushfiqur Rahim is furious with fast bowler Khaled Ahmed. Don’t get mad – or why! In the Khulna-Comilla match, Ruel Meyer made an easy catch to Comilla’s Liton Das in the deep fine leg.
Liton then played 12 balls and was unbeaten on 32 runs. Attack on Khulna bowlers. In the sixth over of the innings, left-arm pacer Ruel Meyer hit a six off the fine leg boundary. The ball went to Khaled as the timing was wrong. But when Khaled failed to catch the catch, Mushfiqur’s face turned to state frustration. Liton added to Khulna’s frustration by hitting another six off Ruel’s next ball.
In the next over, Thisara Perera’s ball finally caught Mushfiqur’s palm and Liton who scored 41 off 16 balls. The Perera-Mushfiq duo showed the way to the devastating Liton in the dressing room with a great catch. Smiling Khaled came forward from the boundary while celebrating the wicket. When he went to hug Mushfiq, Mushfiq pushed him away. But Mushfiqur is still angry that he missed the catch. The rest of the teammates did not miss the moment. The people present in the field did not avoid the eyes. Two foreigners, Pereira and Andre Fletcher, also stood and watched Mushfiqur’s reaction.
Mushfiqur’s reaction on the cricket field is nothing new. Mushfiqur reacted even harder with his teammate Nasum Ahmed in the 2020 Bangabandhu T20 Cup. In the match against Fortune Barisal, Beximco beat Dhaka captain Mushfiqur Nasum. He showed that reaction to Nasum with a catch. He was fined 25 percent of his match fee for that incident. Added a demerit point.
