PV Desk : Mushfiqur Rahim’s Test career stretches well beyond a decade and in the 54 Tests that he played, he has faced all teams except Australia.
Australia’s Test tour later this month is therefore quite significant for the Bangladesh Test skipper, who is looking forward to delivering a triumph over Steve Smith and his men.
The rough schedule for the tour was prepared earlier, but a nine-month long pay dispute between Cricket Australia and players cast uncertainty over their two-Test series.
Australia confirmed the tour after settling the issue last week, raising the bar of excitement for Bangladeshi players.
“It is definitely very exciting that we’ll play against Australia. I have played against all the teams except Australia. This is a big opportunity, not just for me, but for the whole team,” Mushfiqur said on Monday.
