After few months he was sent to India with BD A team to play against some local teams where he was taking 4/5 wickets in every single match. India national team was playing abroad at that time, their pace bowlers sucked big time. I remember reading an Indian newspaper praising Mash and they wished they had a Mash to play for India. I was over the moon after reading that.
After India series he was called into national team. He was over used, that’s why we are seeing all of these injuries. Poor mash.
RUBEL was the product of the first ever PACER HUNT in bangladesh.
mash was spotted in the talent hunt of Andy roberts. roberts metioned shafaq had the best know how and aggression of a perfect pace bowler but lacked the skills to apply it consistently.
i am sure before getting into BD-A team Mash played for a BD u-17 team in a regional tournament where the u-17 teams from IND, PAK and SL.
that BD-u-17 team had Ashraful, nafees iqbal, Mohammed Sharif, Talha jubair and the ind u-17 team consisted shikhar dhawan, robin uthappa, ambati rayudu, Suresh raina, VRV singh etc.
