I don’t think he’s passed.”What we want to do is to increase our player pool before the World Cup,” he said. If anything happens near the World Cup, there should be enough players we’ve seen or believed to be responsible. To strengthen the pipeline before the World Cup, Haturu hinted that the team management has left out a tested cricketer like Riyad in the team. He said, we want to take that opportunity, there are 15 matches before the World Cup. We are trying to give opportunities to players who can play a role. Mahmudullah is still there.
Hathuru said that it is a very difficult question to answer when asked what is the possibility of Riyad returning if they play well. Because you want to find out what we think about Mahmudullah. Mahmudullah has done many things and has experience. We know what he can offer. We want other players to get a taste of international cricket. It’s not about skill, it’s about the character of these guys. This does not mean that Mahmudullah is finished if someone does well, there are still plenty of matches left.
