Sports Desk: Mushfiqur Rahim was not having a good time at 22 yards. There is no end to the recent discussions! The Bangladesh Cricket Board president himself has indicated that this time the experienced batsman will have to make his own decision. What is that decision? Jalghola is not going less with him. Such discussions about him seem to have heated up Mushfiqur. He responded by scoring a relief century in the Chittagong Test.
Mushfiqur's shambhukati century came in 280 balls. In the 153rd over of the innings, Mr. Dependable hit the milestone with four hits to Asitha Fernando. Mushfiqur, who hit a half-century off 125 balls, played 145 balls to make the next fifty. He played 75 balls to reach the quota of 75 to 100 runs.
Four hits came from his bat, 4, no six. This is his eighth international century in white. Third highest for Bangladesh in Tests.
Mushfiqur's bat suffers from a lack of consistency in Tests as well as in other formats. Only 1 half century in last 9 innings. The last time he scored a century was in February 2020, against Zimbabwe. After a long 27 months, he met again in the century. 18 innings and 10 matches have been cut between these two centuries.
This is Mushfiqur's second Test century against Sri Lanka. The former came to the Lankan islands in 2013. He doubled that century. This time, where did this experienced batsman stop, now we are waiting to see that.
