Star of the Moment: Mushfiqur Rahim

by Devanshu Mehta

Spare a thought for Mushfiqur Rahim. He is 23 years old and in his first series as captain, at home against an eminently beatable West Indies. Not just a captain, but a wicket keeper captain, expected to lead a team of twentysomethings including his former captain.

And how does he handle the pressure? He is the top scorer in the single T20 for his team, and wins the game. He is Bangladesh’s top scorer in the ODI series. And at the moment, he is the top scorer in the first Test.

Take a bow, Mushfiqur Rahim.
