Mahedi Hasan was optimistic ahead of the third match with Australia. After a 2-0 lead, Bangladesh wanted to win again ''It's not only me everyone in the team is thinking to move forward on match-by-match process,'' Mahedi told reporters, as quoted by cricbuzz ''As we have the third T20I match coming up tomorrow, we are fully focusing on that and later we would think of the next game.
"At the end of the day the team result is the most important. And everything seems to be in place when there is a positive result of the team as it helps the players to concentrate more and we are confident about our next game,'' said Mahedi.
Mustafizur Rahman is one of his team's key players and probably the best player on the team. Bangladesh would look much worse without him, and it is Rahman who has been a key player in the previous two games. Everyone in the team is aware of how important he is for the team and they hope that he will continue at the same pace in the future.
''We all know what kind of a valuable player Mustafiz (Rahman) is, and we have been playing together from our childhood. And when we were playing the national league cricket, our pace units had always been based on him.
"Mustafizur is a great asset in our condition as the opposition batsmen need to check every delivery from him before playing. And he is as sharp as he was before and he will improve with each passing day and bring breakthroughs at crucial juncture of the game,'' said Mahedi.
Ashton Agar is stunned by Rahman’s skill "He (Mustafizur) is a difficult customer. He is really good. His ability to bowl that slower ball (is very good). If you watch it in slow motion, (you will see) he pretty much does it with his wrist and his fingers.
It's incredible, incredible skill. Amazing revolution," Agar told reporters. "It's a great slower ball as well because it's not too slow and it's got a lot of revolution. It might kick quite a bit off the surface, it might go low, might not or it might spin a lot," he said.
"It's super variable. And he gives himself that opportunity to put as much as he can on the ball. I think he bowls the majority of his slow balls and that's how we have to play," he added.
