Mushfiqur Rahim has a mixed reaction when the Bangladesh Premier League start. Even though 6 tournaments of the tournament have passed, he has not tasted the title yet. But Mushfiqur is above all in one place. He is the highest run-getter in the history of BPL. He wants to retain the crown at the top again. Before the BPL started on January 21, Mushfiqur said, “Alhamdulillah, I am the highest run-getter in the BPL. It’s a different challenge for me to hold on to that place.”
Mushfiqur has 2274 runs in 81 innings in BPL. Tamim Iqbal is in the second position with 2221 runs. No other batsman has more than 2,000 runs. Mushfiqur, the king of BPL runs, gets messy when he wears the jersey of the national team’s T20 format. At least that’s what his recent performance says. Therefore, after the World Cup, he was tactfully dropped from the Pakistan series at home.
Asked if he sees the BPL as a platform for a return to the national team, he said, “I am not thinking about a comeback or a national team. I am thinking of T20 BPL format. I don’t think about what will come in the future. Try for the team, that’s enough for me. Since they(Khulna Tigers Francaise) have signed me directly, I am thinking of giving them a reflection on the field. “
Mushfiqur added, “Everyone wants to run well as a top-order batsman. But team goals are more important to me than personal goals. I became a runner-up last year. I went close to 100 twice but did not get a century. However, I have won those two matches. This is more important. This time there will also be such a challenge. I will try to lead from the front. At the same time, I want to play match-winning innings so that the team gets good results. We can achieve more team goals than personal goals. “
