Mushfiqur’s World Cup preparation in two types of fifty

Mushfiqur Rahim slogged the ball outside Aminul Islam’s legstamp. He got four in the shot. Mushfiqur had 6 runs off 16 balls before that shot. Slog sweep is his favorite shot. But when you can fix it, it is understood that Mushfiqur is in rhythm. He is also confident.

After killing Aminul, Mushfiqur also hit six in the slog sweep, this time to Ruhel Mia. Went to Chittagong to make up for the lack of match preparation before the World Cup, to cut the bad form of the New Zealand series. Mushfiqur made it clear that he was successful in the Chittagong-Mission before the World Cup.
