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.
Don't compare Saqib with Razzaq. Saqib can turn the ball if he wants to just like how he was turning the ball in the 2nd innings of the last test. Haven't you seen how big of a turn Saqib got to bowl out Ian Bell in one of the tests? And I think he had a similar dismissal against India in tests. Sqin produced rippers a lot when he was in top form and before he started to neglect his bowling.
