Shohidul Islam bowled well in the final of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup 2020.
25-year-old right-arm pacer Shohidul Islam proved his mettle in the final of the just-concluded Bangabandhu T20 Cup on Friday.
But it was not easy for him as he lost his father before the Qualifier 1 of the event.
The pacer wasn’t expected to take part in the final. The team management told him to take time as he was in pain after losing his father just a few days ago, but the pacer refused to stay out of the action and decided to play.
It was enough to praise his courage, but the pacer had another idea to show a stronger part of his mental strength.
In the last over of the final, Khulna needed to defend 16 runs, and the captain Mahmudullah Riyad handed the over Shohidul Islam.
Off the first two balls, Shohidul conceded only three runs. The delivered a slow full-toss in the third one which has removed Mosaddek Hossain who was batting at 19 off 14 balls. In the very next step, Shohidul nailed a yorker to Shykat Ali who had already hit a fifty and was the biggest threat for Khulna.
