Warner: Pacer Mustafizur is a ‘quality talent’


Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner has heaped praise on Mustafizur Rahman after the paceman delivered yet another great performance in their win over the Kings XI in the IPL on Saturday.

The 20-year-old Bangladesh fast bowler has been one the best bowlers in the IPL so far – making Sunrisers a solid bet in the IPL odds – and has been impressive in all five matches this season, with batsmen struggling to adapt to his changes of pace.

Against the Kings XI, the left-arm seamer completed sensational figures of two for nine in four overs and Warner had good things to say about his young gun.

Warner told the IPL website: "He is a quality talent and obviously a very good bowler for Bangladesh and for us as well.

"When you are on the field and observing him, you know that he is someone who knows what he has got to do. He sets his fields himself.

"If I disagree with one of the field placements, he understands it on the field and it becomes pretty easy to communicate.

"I think it is his nature of changing deliveries that makes him unplayable. It is the change-ups.

"He says that he is much more comfortable against right-handers but it is while bowling to the left-handers that he senses to use his mind and the need to adapt a lot more to deliver what he thinks is best."
