Mushfiqur Rahim apologized after he misplaced his mood and went to hit his teammate Nasum Ahmed in the Bangabandhu T20 Cup. He posted a joyful picture with Nasum on his official Facebook page. In the caption, the star wicketkeeper-batsman apologizes to Nasum as well as the fans.
Giving salaam to everyone, Mushfiqur wrote, “First of all, I apologize to my fans and supporters for what happened during the match yesterday. I have already apologized to my teammate Nasum at the end of the match. I also ask forgiveness from my Creator. I always believed in myself as a human being above all else and the event that happened to me was not desirable. Inshallah, I am sure that nothing like this will happen on and off the field in the future. Jazakallah Khair.”
Before this, on Monday, Beximco Dhaka and Fortune Barisal faced each other in a life-and-death eliminator match. In a breathtaking match, Tamim Iqbal’s team Barisal was defeated by 9 runs and Mushfiqur’s Dhaka took a place in the second qualifier. Barisal was eliminated from the tournament.
The incident actually happened when the ball hit Afif’s bat and went backwards, while Mushfiqur and Nasum were also moving forward slowly. However, Nasum stopped as Mushfiqur moved closer to the ball. Mushfiqur felt like a gentle push with Nasum after taking the catch. And Mushi got angry at this.
Another such incident took place in the 13th over of Inis. Nasum was in bowling. Afif Hossain pushed the ball in the mid on. Then both of them went there for fielding. Nasum left the stamp and went to catch the ball while Mushfiqur also came running with keeping gloves. Just then the strike edge became unprotected. After taking the ball, Mushfiqur got angry and went to hit Nasum to throw the ball.
Mushfiqur was seen furious a few more times in this match. However, it goes without saying that he was like that to win the match. Although Nasum immediately apologized to the captain, Mushfiqur patted his back again a moment later.
