Both Abdur Razzak and Shakib Al Hasan are not big turners of the ball, but watching Mominul turn nearly every ball was pure entertainment for me. In Bangladesh sometimes we fail to identify the real quality of cricketers for example Abul Hasan (Is he really a bowler, he seems to be a batsmen) – If Abul Hasan was guided well; I think we could have seen a brillaint Batsmen. I would be really happy if both Mominul Haque and Abul Hasan become good all-rounders. Today we lost, yes and blame goes to Mushfiqur Rahim, he tends to make these silly mistakes at crucial stages.
If you followed BD cricket for a long while you should've known that jumping into conclusion within first few games is a carnal sin.....just wait a little.

While we are jumping for Abul being a proper batsmen, few things need to be taken into consideration. He played some handsome shots with batsman like technique but the question is does he have the temperament to play them consistently? Only time can tell and one fluke hundred does not prove it.

Mominul's spin was expected to turn as mush as it did since it was a turning pitch......we were surprised because we haven't seen him bowl before....whether he can shine again time will tell.
