Mortaza Reminisced Win Over Australia in 2005

Mortaza hopes they will win over Australia again in upcoming match

Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza reminisced their team’s win against Australia in 2005 during a one-day international (ODI) in Cardiff ahead of their upcoming match.

“It’s really a nice memory. I can tell you about everything we did on that particular day and night,” said Mortaza in an interview at Trent Bridge on Wednesday. “Obviously that Australia (2005) was very strong. It’s a long time, 14 years, and it was in this country.”

“It has changed a lot. I know a few players in our team who believe that they can beat anybody,” continued Mortaza. “Whatever we have done in the past is not going to help. It’s a new day, a new match. I hope the same will happen (today) but for that, we have to play hard and at our best.”

Meanwhile Mortaza commented that all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is a brilliant player. This comes after Hasan hit his second successive century against West Indies on Monday in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.

“Shakib is brilliant. Even when he started his career for Bangladesh,” stated Mortaza. “He’s a very confident guy and hopefully he will keep going. I think we need to support him as well.”

“I think we need to keep up with what Shakib is doing and the other guys have to step up. But if you look at it, the other boys have stepped up. So, it’s not been a one-man army,” added Mortaza.

The Tigers will be playing against Australia today at Trent Bridge. Bangladesh currently have +450 odds to win the match while Australia have -625 odds.
