Mushfiqur Rahim: New Zealand tour an ideal preparation for World Cup

Cricketer Mushfiqur Rahim thinks that their upcoming tour to New Zealand would give as excellent preparation for the upcoming 2019 cricket World Cup.

While agreeing that New Zealand is going to be a challenging tournament, Rahim stated that their squad would do well against the Black Caps.

ESPNcricinfo quoted Rahim, as saying, “It will be a difficult challenge in New Zealand. India won the ODI series but New Zealand fought really hard. They have a really good bowling attack but I believe that our team will do well,”.

“It will be the ideal preparation ahead of the World Cup. There may be high-scoring matches. If we can overcome those challenges, it will only help us for the future,” he added.

Bangladesh played their last one-day match against West Indies in December last year. Since later, they have been playing just the T20 matches. But Rahim thinks that a practice series before the commencement of the tournament would prove to be useful for them.

“Ideally there should be a week’s break (after the BPL) but still, our first game is on February 13. So we have seven or eight days left. We are in match practice, so there can’t be anything better than that. It helps you fitness-wise too,” he said.
