'Whitewash almost expected now' - Mushfiqur

Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim speaks to The Daily Star on the progress his team has made, the way forward, his captaincy, his life off the field and more.

Now it seems that when we win a series, it is almost expected that we will complete a whitewash (laughs). There is a confidence now. Often there is huge expectation and responsibility. But now, not just us, but the public -- even rickshaw-pullers -- also know that when we are in trouble someone will put his hand up. Not just Shakib or Tamim, but anyone like a (Sohag) Gazi, a Mominul (Haque) or a (Shamsur Rahman) Shuvo can turn up and play a big hand.
