The batsman from Bangladesh, Mushfiqur Rahim, says that he does not regret never playing the Indian Premier League and would like to play for his country instead.
He says that the cash-rich league has got its class but he does not have any regrets for never being selected or being a part of any IPL franchise.
Mushfiqur Rahim got selected in IPL auction more than once but no franchise picked him in playing XI or expected squad. The thing has not upset the players and he would love to play for Bangladesh, his loving home side instead.
Mushfiqur Rahim has no regrets for never being selected in IPL
“No, I don’t have any regrets. I don’t think that playing the IPL can be bigger than representing my country. I think IPL is definitely one of the biggest T20 leagues in the world and all the top-class players of the world play there. So I would’ve considered myself fortunate enough to play in such a tournament.
He maintained that it would be an honor to live with the legendary personalities and share the dressing room as IPL has got some big names soaked in cricket.
I could definitely take my game to a higher level, sharing the dressing room with legends. If I get an opportunity then, of course, I’ll play. And if I don’t get then honestly, I will never regret it,” he said.
On being asked for other regrets in life, he said that nothing would have been better if they would have managed to win the game against India in T20 World Cup back in 2016 along with an ODI against West Indies.
“The other disappointments have been the World T20 match against India and the second ODI against the West Indies. If we had won that ODI we would have won the series – although we won the next match if we could have won that it would have been a white-wash,” Rahim said.
