Sports Desk:Bangladesh Test skipper Mushfiqur Rahim expressed his pride and passion while speaking about leading Bangladesh team in the 100th Test, which is scheduled to start against Sri Lanka on 15 March at Colombo’s P Sara Oval.

“Of course, this is a historic moment for Bangladesh cricket and if I play in this match and play as a captain, it will be a big honor for me. When Bangladesh got Test status and played the first match in 2000, I was a student of class XII in BKSP. I remember we watched that match there on television,” Tigers’ Test captain interpreted while talking to the reporters in Colombo on Tuesday.

“From then I had a belief, hope and dream that if I could play Test cricket for Bangladesh, then it will be a big achievement. Obviously in these 16 years maybe we have not been able to give Bangladesh cricket all it wanted. But to be honest, the way Bangladesh has been playing in Tests for the last two, two-and-a-half years, if we can continue in that vein for two or three more years then Bangladesh will improve a lot in Tests.”
