The 29 year old Bangladeshi player thinks Umesh Yadav’s spell is one of the best he has ever played.
Bangladesh in their first ever test match against England after their first two disaster days they have something to cheer up after the third day, at the end of the third day they scored 322 for 6 in pursuit of 687.
The Bangladeshi all rounder Shakib Al Hasan has scored a wonderful half century and also the Bangladeshi skipper Mushfiqur Rahim and Mehedi Hasan also scored half centuries because of that they scored 300 runs.
After the third day they managed to score 322 runs, but still they have many ways to go now, the 29 year old Bangladeshi all rounder feels that the 4th day will be very crucial for both the teams and it can decide the test.
Shakib added: “I think that session will decide the fate of the match. We have to bat really well,”
“For us, it is still a long way in this Test as India is on the front foot right now. We have to really bat well,”
“Umesh (Yadav) bowled really well in the morning [on Saturday], moving the ball both ways. I needed to be positive and use the soft hands quite often to counter him,”
About Umsesh Yadav’s spell the 29 year old says that it is one the most wonderful bowling he has ever faced on international cricket.
About that he added: “It was one of the best bowling efforts I had ever faced in Test cricket,”
“Yes, even I am not happy with my dismissal. But, you must have seen I have been playing my shots. It is bad luck that one shot did not get connected (he was out for 82 going for a big heave on onside),”
Shakib also knows that the Mushfiqur Rahim is a kind of player who loves to take challenges and that is the reason behind his success.
He voiced: “He likes to get involved in everything. He had to be patient [on Saturday] for he needed this half-century coming after a long gap. He did perfectly what the team needed [on Saturday],”
