Mushfiqur Rahim, the Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batsman, has hit the nets with an ultra-aggressive mindset, preparing for the upcoming Asia Cup, scheduled to start in UAE from August 27. Mushfiqur, who is making a return to the national T20 setup, last played a T20I against Afghanistan in March this year.
There is a possibility that he might be seen in a different role as the team management is pondering over opening the innings with Mushfiqur in the Asia Cup, though a final decision in this regard will be taken after the arrival of head coach Russell Domingo, who is expected to arrive on Friday (August 19).
However, over the days of individual practice sessions of national cricketers at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, Mushfiqur has been seen preparing with a different mindset. The veteran batter, who usually takes some time before practicing his power strokes, was seen hitting all the balls out of the ground right from the start.
