Mashrafe, The Boss

Mashrafe is a magician in cricket. Both his performance and captaincy have reached him in the utmost destination. On March 06, what Mashrafe did in the last over, when Agrani Bank required 13 to win with four wickets in hand, simply retold the story of a great cricketer; four wickets in four balls, a double hattrick for the first time in the history of domestic List A cricket.
Mashrafe continued his fairytale season with bowling figures of 9.5-44-6. His absence hurt us all when we enjoy T20 cricket match of Bangladesh. He should comeback again to lead Bangladesh again in T20. At 34, he is one of our young starts and Icon of young cricketers. Salute, the Boss!
