Default The Mash-ful 15 Years

He is one of the best cricketers to ever come out of Bangladesh. And without a debate, the best Bangladeshi captain ever, Mashrafe bin Mortaza completed 15 years in the international cricket. Through all the ups and downs, through all the pain and suffering he keeps running back over and over. After all that has happened, he's still dons the Green and Red, standing tall, stronger than ever, giving it his all for his team and his country. All of that aside, most importantly, he's just an amazing human being with spirits that flies beyond the boundary ropes. We couldn't be more grateful to call him our captain.

Congratulations, Captain Mash on an amazing career so far! May you continue to fight and grow stronger. May you continue to lead us in the right direction with your unmatched power, passion, and positivity. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for teaching a nation how to never quit and never give up!

You're a hero without a cape, a superhuman without superpowers. You're the definition of Royal Bengal Tiger. Keep roaring, Mash!

I hope this guy gets to retire from every format by actually playing the games and not injured. That means, I would love to see him play one last test match before he retires...

"This is the Chitra River, the love of my life," -Mashrafe

My best memory of him, hmmm...
Not too long ago, days ago. 2nd ODI vs England. That was his show. He owned that match.

^ 2nd ODI, in England 2010. He was big then too coincidentally.

His World Cup MoM vs Inda where he was bowling at 90 MPH was by far the best ever. He was truly express then. Prior to that he was the highest wicket taker that year (even if it was against lower ranked teams).

Yup. low to mid 140 kmph. Nearing 90 if not fully 90.

And I specifically remember Romiz Raza(?) was surprised by Mash's pace in the ceremony.
