Five players made their World Cup debut for Bangladesh at The Oval on Sunday and that too with a landmark with victory against South Africa.
Mehidy Hasan Miraj, one of the World Cup debutants alongside Mosaddek Hossain Saikat, Mohammad Mithun, Mohammad Saifuddin and Mustafizur Rahman, said there could be nothing better to have a World Cup debut with a victory against such mighty side.
He attributed down the success to the terrific mixture of youth and experience in the team, which was key in beating South Africa by 21 runs.
The team that beat South Africa at the Oval also featured four players who have played in four World Cups each - captain Mashrafe Mortaza, Shakib al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim and Tamim Iqbal - and one player, Mahmudullah, who has played in three World Cups while Soumya Sarkar is playing his second World Cup.
However Mehidy along with, Mustafizur Rahman, Saifuddin, Mosaddek Hossain and Mithun, made the most of the opportunity to play among some of their country's big names on the biggest stages.
Not only did Mehidy make his tournament debut against South Africa at the Oval but he also opened the bowling and was Bangladesh's most economical performer. In his 10 overs, Mehidy conceded only 44 runs and claimed the biggest opposition scalp, that of captain Faf du Plessis.
Mustafizur and Saifuddin came up with deadly death over bowling to prevent South African power-packed lower middle order from the late carnage, claiming three and two wickets respectively. Mithun made run-a-ball-21 and Mosaddek provided late impetus alongside Mahmudullah Riyad with 20 ball-26 runs.
"We have four senior guys who have a lot of experience; guys who have played in many World Cups and we have a lot of belief coming from that. And then our junior guys have also performed strongly," Mehidy Hasan, who at 21 years old is one of Bangladesh's younger players, was quoted by ICC.
