Indian Players Taunted Me As "School Boy": Mushfiqur
Bangladesh wicket-keeper batsman Mushfiqur Rahim on Thursday alleged that Indian bowlers sledged him by calling him a "school boy" during his century knock on the fifth day of the first cricket Test in Chittagong .
"The Indian bowlers picked me for sledging when I was batting well. They called me school boy. But I was enjoying it and I had answered it with my bat," Mushfiqur, who scored a 114-ball 101, said at the post-match press conference after his side lost to India by 113 runs to go down 0-1 in the two-Test series
Sehwag, who was jeered by the spectators at the post-match presentation apparently for calling Bangladesh as an "ordinary" side, however, refused to comment when asked about Mushfiqur's charge. "I can't do (say) anything about that (Mushfiqur's charge)," Sehwag retorted without blinking an eyelid.
Mushfiqur also said that South Africa and Australia are better sides than India, a view similar to that of his captain Shakib Al Hasan.
Asked what was India's strength Mushfiqur said, "Definitely batting. They have a strong batting line-up which is much better than their bowling. But Australia and South Africa are better sides than India."
"Their (India's) bowling was good in patches. Sometimes they bowled well but other times they were bowling bad," added the Bangladeshi stumper who notched up his maiden century today, which was also the fastest ton by a Bangladeshi batsmen.
He said if Bangladesh's top-order batsmen had not thrown their wickets in a hurry, his side could have gone for a win or at least a draw.
"The top order did not do well but we can improve in the next match. We bowled well in the match. Shakib (the captain) is our main bowler and he did really well in the match. I hope we can do better in the next match," he said. PTI
