- Mushfiqur Rahim has courted controversy in the ongoing Bangabandhu T20 Cup

- Rahim got involved in an ugly fight with his own teammate
Bangladeshi cricketer Mushfiqur Rahim was courting a dispute in the packed Bangabandhu T20 Cup when the goalkeeper batsman lost his cool and almost ended up hitting his teammate Nasum Ahmed during an intense confrontation between the two players. Rahim, who is one of the most popular cricketers in the Bangladeshi cricket scene, showed his ugly side in a Bangabandhu T20 Cup match between Beximco Dhaka and Fortune Barishal.
Although Beximco Dhaka managed to overtake Fortune Barishal in the ongoing final stage of the T20 competition, it was Rahim who bagged all the fame after being involved in a heated altercation with his teammate Ahmed. The bizarre incident occurred on the 17th during Barishal’s inning. Batman Afif Hossain misunderstood his shot, which opened the way for Rahim to make a remarkable catch.
Anticipating the batsman’s running catch, Rahim almost collided with another fielder and the captain was simply upset by the miscommunication between the two players. Setting on his teammate, Beximco Dhaka’s captain almost unleashed a right blow to Ahmed. The controversial incident about the Bangladeshi cricketer has become the city’s talk on social media.
Rahim was also struck by a crowd of Twitter users for his unsportsmanlike conduct during the T20 contest. Known for his explosive batting style in white ball cricket, Rahim practices his business with the Dhaka-based franchise in the 2020-21 edition of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup hosted by Bangladesh.
After securing their place in the commercial end of the elite T20 competition, Rahim-led Beximco Dhaka locked horns with Fortune Barishal in the eliminator on Monday. The Rahim-led side defeated Fortune Barishal to enter the Qualifier 2 stage of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup. The Dhaka franc captain has scored 262 runs so far in 9 matches of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup.
