18 February 2023
Muminul Haque's drought has been going on for a long
time. He also lost the captaincy. Dropped from the team. The Test specialist batsman, who became
the captain of the Tigers, fell down from there. Recently, Muminul also played for the 'A' team.
Not that he did very well there. However, Bangladesh still has faith in him. He also repaid the
Muminul saved Bangladesh by batting first in the second Test against visiting India in Mirpur.
Muminul, who played a half-century innings, narrowly missed out on a century. He returned to the
dressing room after playing a brilliant innings of 84 runs. After 12 innings, this half-century
in white is a relief for Muminul. At the same time, the situation is like regaining the light
for the Bangladesh team.
However, Muminul was not played in the Chittagong Test either. Even if he did not play the
match, he did not sit in Sagarika. Worked with batting coach Jamie Siddons for himself.
Desperate to get back into the running, Muminul groomed himself in practice, which reflected on
the ground in Mirpur. Muminul also said that Mirpur's innings of 83 runs was the result of
working with Siddons in Chittagong.
About Muminul's innings, Siddons said, "We gave him complete freedom, so that he could play
fluently. We wanted him to enjoy batting. But in Chittagong practice, he batted in a T20 mood. I
don't know how we worked that. But in Mirpur, he came to the crease. Played shots, got success.
But it would have been nice if this innings turned into a century."
Meanwhile, Muminul's return is like a rain of relief in the Tiger camp. Because, the problem
with the batting lineup is quite old. No one can settle well in number three. Nazmul Hossain
Shanto has always failed in the top order despite playing for a long time. However, new arrival
Zakir Hasan is showing light. But the return of an experienced batsman like Muminul is
undoubtedly good news for him, for the team.
