The old Rubel is back ahead of SL series

February 14, 2013

Pace bowler Rubel Hossain felt he is finally getting back his old rhythm ahead of the upcoming series against Sri Lanka after putting in a match-winning performance for Chittagong Kings against Duronto Rajshahi in the Bangladesh Premier League on Wednesday.
Rubel had let Kings down in the previous match by conceding 16 runs in the last over, but he bounced back in style to bowl two brilliant overs against Duronto, which became the turning point of the crucial game.
‘I feel that I am getting back the rhythm and can in put the same amount of effort,’ Rubel told reporters after his 2-23 in the high-scoring do-or-die clash at Mirpur.
‘I was injured during the last one year so I could not work with my bowling during the-slog overs,’ said Rubel, who returned to international cricket with the West Indies series after recovering from a shoulder injury.
‘I want to come back to that place where I was before as I used to bowl well in the slog-overs,’ he said.
The paceman was confident of making a good contribution after repeatedly bowling in a tight situation in the BPL.
‘Every player is playing matches in the BPL and everyone is trying to bowl some extra overs to get a feel of the Test matches,’ he said.
‘Mahela and Sangakkara are all reputed international players but there are equally reputed players in the BPL and bowling against them always increases your confidence,’ he said, referring to Sri Lanka’s two batsmen Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara.
