Born on 25 October 1997, Mehedi Hasan Miraz is Bangladeshi’s new best cricketer. He was born in Barisal and was brought up in Daulatpur in the outskirt parts of Khulna city. Cricketer Miraz learnt the art of offspin by observing Sheikh Salahuddin, Bangladeshi’s former player widely recognized as the most skilled offspinner of his time.
As a child, Mehedi Hasan MIRAZ always desired to be a renowned cricketer, but his father did not like the idea. He said that playing the game was not good and that those who participated in it were for some reason in danger. For this reason, Miraz played cricket in secret, trying to hide it from his father. When his father discovered it, he physically confronted him, but young Miraz did not give up hope. He went on playing, sometimes even with his brothers. In 2010, a cricket coach named Almahamud, knowing his financial struggles, gave him and others a chance to participate in the under 14 cricket games.
Cricketer Miraz played in the Under 14 team district level and performed so well that he was seen as ‘The man of the match’. Mehidi Hasan Miraz took home a prize of 25 thousands taka as the best player. The newspaper also published an article about him; and he showed it to his father. At that point, his father recognized his son’s talent and encouraged him, projecting that one day he would play for the national team of Bangladesh.
Mehedi Hasan Miraz is the current captain of Bangladesh national under-19 cricket team. He plays the role of an all-rounder cricketer. In 2015, Cricketer Miraz was made the captain of the cricket team of Bangladesh for the 2016 Under-19 Cricket World Cup.
Cricketer Miraz has come up as one of the most promising young stars in Bangladesh cricket. He led Bangladesh to their first match in an Under-19 World Cup semi-final in February 2016. In October, he made the year even more memorable when he led his team against England.
He is a tactical all-rounder who performs right-handed spin bowling with a peaceful activity where he hurls to the wicket, gives a slight jump, then turning his abdominal area. It is a wonderfully straightforward activity that has made him achieve numerous wickets in under 19 matches and five-star level.
Cricketer Miraz put in 2 years at the under 19 level, playing for Bangladeshi team in the 2014 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates. This star made a big appearance in the 2014-15’s National Cricket League; however it was not until the following season’s competition when he truly made a check.
Mehedi Hasan Miraz figured out how to take his group into elimination round but unfortunately lost to West Indies. In third place play-off, his team beat Sri Lanka by 3 wickets. This led to his being named Man of the Tournament for outstanding performance – he scored 242 runs and took 12 wickets in the course of just 6 matches. After this tournament, he was very excited and declared that his target was to be the best all rounder. He promised to try his best in his endeavors at making his nation proud.
Cricketer Miraz is the fourth most youthful bowler in the world to take a five-wicket pull on presentation – and the most youthful ever in Bangladesh. Be that as it may, he didn’t hope to do this kind of execution. He expressed happiness in getting five wickets, showing a joyful sense of disbelief in his exceptional performance. He also disclosed that the group administration did not expect much from him; but he went ahead to prove them wrong – “I thought I would take two or three wickets, score 30 odd runs; bit of a normal execution on presentation. The group administration let me know that they don’t expect much from me.”
The chief coach of the Bangladesh under 19 cricket team has expressed pride and great faith in Cricketer Miraz, particularly stating that Miraz is a ‘beautiful player’. He acknowledges Miraz’s efforts and determination in playing for the national team.
Cricketer Miraz is generally a great player. After the 2016 Cricket World Cup, there are those who called him Junior Mashrafe and yet others, who referred to him as Junior Shakib; but if he keeps his present pace in the game, he will definitely be the brightest star in the cricket sky.
