Bangladesh batsman Mushfiqur Rahim has stated that the most satisfactory innings in his career was the hundred he scored in the 2018 Asia Cup against Sri Lanka. Meanwhile, T20I captain Mahmudullah Riyad said that the innings against Sri Lanka in the virtual semifinal in the 2018 Nidahas Trophy satisfied him the most.
The duo along with Mashrafe Mortaza joined Tamim Iqbal in a live session on Facebook and YouTube on Sunday where they discussed their best performances in Bangladesh colours.
"That unbeaten 43 against Sri Lanka satisfied me the most because I could take the team over the line which I couldn't do against India in the 2016 ICC World T20," Mahmudullah said.
The host Tamim Iqbal asked each of his guests to pick the best performances of the rest.
Mushfiqur Rahim said that he enjoyed Mortaza's cameo of 44 runs against Kenya when Bangladesh crossed the 300-mark for the first time. Rahim also picked Mahmudullah's hundred against England at Adelaide Oval in the 2015 ICC World Cup which happened to be the first-ever hundred by a Bangladeshi batsman in World Cups.
Mahmudullah mentioned that the spell against England in the 2015 World Cup was Mashrafe's favourite performance of his where he got Alex Hales and Joe Root out. He picked Mushfiqur's 144 against Sri Lanka in the 2018 Asia cup as his favourite performance as well.
Tamim Iqbal himself picked some of his favourite performances. Iqbal termed Mortaza's brilliant bowling performance against India in the 2007 World Cup as one of his favourites. He also picked Mushfiqur's 144 against Sri Lanka and Mahmudullah's unbeaten 43 in the Nidahas Trophy against Sri Lanka.
Former captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza picked Mahmudullah's 103 against England as one of the best performances he has ever watched. He also spoke highly of Mushfiqur Rahim's magnificent 99 against Pakistan in the 2018 Asia Cup and Tamim Iqbal's stellar performance in the bilateral series against Pakistan in 2015.
