Historic Championship at last - Yes now we can say "We are the champions"


The Making of Mustafizur

The Bangladesh bowler has had a dream start, but he's not going to let that change the person he is


"I want to serve the country for at least 10 years. But I just want to be like I am right now"

As a child, Mustafizur Rahman didn't trouble his parents or his three older brothers. He was a quiet kid. Contrary to the custom in Bangladeshi households, however, he used to eat with the fingers of his left hand. So one day when he was very young, his mother took him to someone to correct the habit.

"I was always a left-hander, for everything. My mother took me to a place in the village. After returning from there I couldn't eat left-handed but everything else was left-handed," he said. "No, really. I couldn't eat with my left hand again. The other things remained the same."  >> Click Here ..
