Ajit Agarkar thinks Bangladesh should play Rubel Hossain, but not in Mashrafe bin Mortaza’s stead

After back-to-back defeats against New Zealand and England, Bangladesh’s bowling is under scrutiny. 

Experts and fans alike are questioning captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza’s bowling capabilities.

Ajit Agarkar, the former Indian bowler, is not willing to go for Mashrafe’s head just yet. 

He thinks Bangladesh should play Rubel Hossain, but not in Mashrafe’s stead.

The Narail Express can still add value to the side with his experience and leadership, feels Agarkar.

“I think they have got to get Rubel in. I think they can’t leave Mashrafe out. At this point on his bowling form, he doesn’t fit in the XI but he is their leader and you need his experience,” he said.

The former fast bowler thinks Mosaddek Hossain should be the one to make way for Rubel. 

He feels Bangladesh can do without an additional off-spinner, as Mehedi Hasan Miraz is in good form.

“I think Mosaddek is one that they can leave out. I think they have enough spin options in Shakib [al Hasan] and Mehedi. Their batting is doing well and it is their bowling which is letting them down at this point. You can’t concede over 300 and expect your batters to chase it down. Their chase was really spirited even if one guy got a big score. It still was a good chase,” Agarkar said.

Bangladesh will play Sri Lanka Tuesday in their fourth match of the World Cup 2019.
