No it was Rubel who was mentioned not Sajidul. I remember it because I followed that series and went to watch one of the A team match which had Tamim,Shakib,Mushfiq and Dhiman. Commentator was praising Mushfiq and Rubel. Tamim's batting was very erratic back then it was all dance down the wicket and try to hit it outside. Shakib never used to waste any balls as always back then it was more singles and doubles. Hats off to Shakib he has gone from just another good player to Mr invincible today.
