Bangladesh captain Mominul Haque said that his team will miss experienced wicket-keeper batsman Mushfiqur Rahim in the first Test against Pakistan, starting from February 7 in Rawalpindi.
While talking at a pre-match presser in Rawalpindi, Haque said that they will somewhere feel the absence of Mushfiq but at the same time he is confident to go out with a winning approach.
“It is sometimes difficult for you to play without your one of the best players. But I think maybe it’s a golden opportunity for a young player,” he said. “We are not too good overseas so we are looking forward to playing best cricket here,” Haque added.
The Bangladeshi captain praised Pakistan’s hospitality and said there were no security concerns at all in visiting Pakistan. “I think everything is fine here. We have been looked after well so far and we are looking ahead for a successful tour,” he maintained.
It must be noted here that Bangladesh has split their tour to Pakistan into three phases. Pakistan has already won three matches T20I series 2-0 in January. After this first Test, Bangladesh will come again to Pakistan to play one-off ODI and second Test in April.
