Mosharraf replaces Rubel for third ODI
Left-arm spinner Mosharraf Hossain Rubel has been called up to the Bangladesh team in place of paceman Rubel Hossain for the third and final ODI against Afghanistan, scheduled to be held on Saturday. The 34-year old Mosharraf was earlier named in the 20-member pool following a selection committee meeting on Wednesday night, right after the second ODI against the Afghans. Mosharraf has been a consistent performer over the past few years in the domestic circuit and made his ODI debut eight years back in 2008. He joined the rebel Indian Cricket League but the Bangladesh Cricket Board later reinstated the players who took part in the tournament. He was called up to the national side three years back against Sri Lanka but did not play a game and was later provisionally banned for the Bangladesh Premier League Twenty20 match-fixing controversy. However, he was later cleared by the tribunal after investigation. Rubel on the other hand had a poor outing in the second ODI where he bowled just three overs and went for 24 runs. He did well in the latter stages of the first ODI but eventually ended up with bowling figures of 1/62 from nine overs. And according to Mosharraf, he is looking forward to grabbing the opportunity. He said he will look to perform and establish a regular place in the national side. “I think there are high chances for me to play in the third game. I was waiting for this opportunity. I have performed consistently in the domestic circuit to make a comeback to the national team. Finally, I got the chance and I will try to give my best to be a regular member in the national side,” Mosharraf told the media on Thursday. “For that to happen, I have to perform well and give my best,” he said. Mosharraf, who is also a handy batsman lower down the order, is prepared to contribute with the willow whenever the opportunity arises. “It depends on my batting position in the team with regards to what will be my role, whether I'll play as an all-rounder or as a spinner. Wherever I get the opportunity to bat, I will try to give my best. If any situation occurs in the latter stages of the game, suppose if there's eight-nine overs remaining in the innings, I will try to bat till the end,” he said.
