Asif is a famous singer and also the brand ambassador of Barisal Bulls. The singer gave a status in his facebook page about this yesterday. And after losing Sixth match in a row, today frustrated Mushfiqur Rahim slammed him as insane.
When Asif was asked about the statement of Mushfiq he answered, “I am fine, not insane yet. I know Mushfiq has lost his temper after losing Six matches in a row. I do not have anything to say about this”.
He also added, “I have a good relation with Mushfiq. We will meet tomorrow. He himself was laughing reading the status in hotel, yesterday. But he had to face media at press conference. He cannot show his anger with media. But I am angry with for this.”
What gave him hint of match fixing, Asif replied, I go to stadium for 32 years. Mushfiq himself is not even 32 years till now. I know everything with cricket, though I do not have a career as him. But he should keep his cool about these things. He is a good boy.”
Earlier Asif in his status wrote, ” During over no.17, 18, 19 and 20 the batsmen turn disable and bowlers become tiger. The other name of twenty/20 is gambling. We go to stadium as fan, but we are being played in the table. Few local and overseas players of my team Barisal Bulls are involved in match fixing I am sure, but do not have proof. But BCB can find it out if they investigate properly.”
Mushfiqur Rahim was asked about this, he said, “What can I say ! I cant believe my eyes after reading this and listening from everyone. He is a big public figure and such a educated person, he will speak like this or even write like is irritating and annoying. Because as a player, no matter what team we play for, we local and overseas player working really hard. with lot of professionalism. This is also our way of earning, so if anyone still betray, this cant be anything worse than this”.
“It is not possible to say like this if you are not crazy. He is passionate about cricket and was involved with it in many ways. That is why its very sad to see alligation from such a person. He could have said he is upset with our performance. That can happen. Not only him, the whole Barisal people are very upset. We are not playing good, that is different thing. But the way he wrote, is not possible by any normal guy, unless he is crazy,” he added.
