Default "At the End of My Career, I Want to Feel That I Have Been Able to Justify the Opportunity Given to Me."- Mushfiqur Rahim

New article/interview with the little master on cricinfo:


Quote:
How important is pride for you, playing for Bangladesh?

It should be the first and final word to represent a country. We make a lot of sacrifices by staying away from our families for months. There's no greater pride than doing something for your country. When you know that 18-20 crore [180-200 million] people pray for you - a rickshaw-puller may have given up on his day's earning just watching our match; so it drives me. You don't need any more motivation. There's no bigger privilege. A lot of talented cricketers started off with me but Allah gave me the opportunity [to keep going].

Good article, at least he sounded mature compared to his seldom outbursts during captaincy.

He's actually the most professional member of the squad to date. Tamim has only become professional since 2015. I guess Riyad and Mominul could also be added to the list.

But Mushy has been training hard since day 1 of his career and that work ethic is the exemplary and sets the best example for the rest of our squad.

And he has the fiesty attitude and won't back down from anyone.

This was quite a mature and top class interview.

It doesn't have to be end of his career. He already justified all the opportunities given to him. He got lucky initially that we persisted with him(unlucky that we threw him in lions den at teen age) compared to many that got discarded but he is definitely one of the icon of our cricket.

thank you for your service Mushfique. keep going. But talk less. lol

He should focus on his batting only. We didnt utilize his batting talent properly because of his wicket keeping. Let Liton/Bijoy do the work

Agreed. I recall writing a post few years back where I showed Mushy the batsman was unequivocally one of the best in the world for a span of four-five years, between 2011-2016 I believe. He averaged close to 50 in ODI's and went toe to toe with Kohli as recently as few years back. Then Kohli decided to lift off leaving everyone else on planet earth in the dust. In 2014 our team was horrible, we lost almost every game. Many a time Mushy single handedly kept us in the game.

A good interview. Mushi is synonymous with consistency and durability.

His dedication and the way he constantly tries to improve himself – he made himself the Best Bangladeshi middle order bat. A year back Rahim was a door knob in T20s. He has worked on that part of his game too.

Am actually very curious to know, what is it about him that you do not like on a personal level? Hell Shakib is a bigger douchebag both on and off field. Very unprofessional with his on field/off field attitude alot of times. Compared to him, this guy is a saint and he performs with his bat. Let's not even mention others like Sabbir and co.

Tick-tock Roey. Are you listening? This is Admiral Hessian of the so-called infamous Hessian War from the 55th Navy of Royal Artillery Brigade, Her Majesty. You have exactly three hours to explain yourself and make your point or retract your comment, revoke your badge and surrender. You have been covered from an elevated ground. Make - I repeat- make no attempt to waffle. It will be dealt with Level III highly classified ZERO TOLERANCE form of Aunt Jemima no-nonsense approach to bullshittery.

Your time starts now.

Mushfiqur is like any of our other players, who has regular peaks and trough. He is just more immature and emotional than others.

I think the more he matures mentality the better his batting will become.

Roey tried to get Mushy out but always failed miserably as a bowler. Mushy hit him out of the park with six sixes in an over and followed it up with NAGIN dance on his face.

Roey now accepted the fact he cannot beat Mushy, but does not blurt it out. Since he cannot beat Mushy, his only option is to hate Mushy and feel good about himself until Mushy retires.

How many levels of misinformation can become a LOVE AFFAIR?

11-16 (I am not going call names) his average was below 40. 39.67 to be exact. Feel free to recheck. That is not Kohli like. Virat had 54.87. Toe to toe??? He is 40th in the WORLD sorted by AVERAGE who played more than 10 games.

He is even below Soumya Sarkar's average of 40.22. SR rate of 84 is not even close to Sarkar's 99. That is Strictly in ODIs.
+++
Same time frame: (Test and T20)
11-16 Test T20
Name Inns Runs
Avg 100's 50's BD Rank Inns Runs Avg 100's 50's BD Rank
Musfiq 47 1610 36.59 2 9 3 36 618
19.93
1 3
Shakib 42 1750
47.29 2 14 2 40 896
28.00
6 2
Tamim 48 1996
40.51 4 11 1 38 961
29.12 1 4 1

If you shorten the time frame to 14-16 it would be the same story or worse. In T20, for example, Mushfiq averaged 16+. Sabbir, Tamim, Shakib, Mahmudullah, Anamul have scored more and have much better average. He comes 6th. Not the #1 batsman most of here tries to proclaim.

He rode free for a long time where he should have been dropped.

^In that post I was trying to recall the numbers from memory. In the subsequent post I produced reference to the actual facts which you conveniently ignored. I don't follow Tests/T20's as much as I used to. That's why I was referencing ODI's only and using ODI stats, although technically speaking I could've been a bit more explicit. The statsguru link you provided shows Mushy's ODI avg bet 2014-16 was close to 47, which itself isn't all that far from Kohli's avg.

Also did you even read iDumb's post that I agreed with?

I'll chalk it up to a rare "much ado about nothing post" from you

Averages doesn't define a player (unless his name is Bradman).

Funny story about Bradman. When he was captain so many years ago.

On a minefied of a pitch, his team was set a fairly substantial total to chase, and he freaking reversed the batting order. I think he came in at #7 or #9 and flayed the opposition. They won (I think)

Let's not play this game again. No matter how many times I explain, you guys forget and keep wanting to hear it again. If you are genuinely interested, go dig up my old posts. Or listen to the podcasts. Very first episode, I get into it briefly, and the last episode with Al Furquan, I do the same.
