Default The Official Mashrafee Mortaza Thread

"A bowler like Mashrafee comes only once each hundred years" said Athar Ali Khan. From the outset it might seem to be an odd or outlandish claim. But with close inspections and keeping BD cricket context in mind this doesn't seem to be an iota of exaggeration to me. Mashrafee, certainly, is one of the most talented pacers of his time. Specially, if the sub-continental pacers are discussed. I'm not talking about Vaas or Akhtar here as I don't see them as his peer. It is quite unfortunate that serious injuries and, perhaps, poor self-discipline has so far plagued his career and stunted his success or the high potential he promised. Nevertheless, this brave Tiger deserves a thread of his own and it has been long over-due.
