There are big problems in the Bangladesh team. Mushfiqur Rahim is likely to be ruled out for the T20i series against Pakistan. Musfiqur believes that the reason is a slightly weaker game in previous matches. The biggest surprise is that Mahmudullah does not know what is happening, which is quite strange, because the captain should be included in some decisions, and also he should be informed.
"If you ask the team management it will be better," Mahmudullah said after his attention was drawn to Mushfiqur's exclusion. "I am not sure what Mushfiqur said and can only say something after seeing it.
This decision (excluding Mushfiqur from T20) is entirely of the team management and I am not ready to say anything in this regard, but all I can say is that we will miss Mushfiqur (in the series)," he said, as quoted by cricbuzz
"It is totally the team management or board's decision (as far as captaincy is concerned).
I am not too worried about it. I will continue if they think I am good enough," said Mahmudullah." "If I have to say about my position (as the captain) then I will have to say a lot of things and I don't want to say it here.
"I think it's best not to comment (about his career). If I am fit, I can play for a few more years. I haven't thought about these things. I have to overcome the pressure and challenges." "It is the same for experienced players or the new ones.
I think it is best to focus on trying to perform rather than focus on these things (all the talks going around)," he said.
He still doesn't want to talk about the World Cup because he is currently focused on the T20 matches that await him, and he wants to give as much as possible to the team and help in the best way.
"I don't want to talk about the World Cup. If we keep talking about what has happened, it might create a negative effect. I am really focused on the T20 match (tomorrow), how I can contribute as an individual player and make sure everyone else contributes too."
"We are taking everything positively. Definitely, Pakistan is a major T20 side, which makes it a challenge for us. "There will be challenges with a young team, especially against Pakistan. But I believe that T20 is the type of format where you can expect something good from your best line-up on a good wicket."
"I know that we couldn't fulfill our expectations in the World Cup. For us, starting well is very important. We need to keep up after picking the momentum," he said.
