One of the best things about IPL is that it brings International cricketers together and turns foes into friends within a span of few weeks. David Warner, the Aussie opener who represents Sunrisers in the IPL, has expressed his concern over his IPL teammate Mustafizur Rahman’s work rate. He insisted that Bangladesh cricket should take care of the youngster considering how brilliant a talent he is.

In the ongoing second Test, David Warner registered a scintillating hundred on day 3 which kept Australia pretty much in the hunt. David Warner’s terrific knock came to an end courtesy a brilliant piece of bowling from Mustafizur.


“You have to look after of your Pacers and you have to throw special importance to a pacer who could be your number one strike bowler in the team, whether it be in Test cricket, one-day international cricket or T20,” Warner suggested.

He should decide what formats he should play

We have seen a lot of cricketers taking important decisions regarding the work load they should deal with. Many cricketers have opted to deal with either one or two formats as they believe their style of play doesn’t help them succeed in all formats. Cheteshwar Pujara is a sensational example of it and the 29-year-old has been doing a fantastic job in Tests for a long period of time.

The Australian vice-captain feels Mustafizur should take a decision on his career. He suggested that no one else should influence his decision on playing either one or two formats or turning an all-format cricketer for his side. Considering a fact that the Fizz has a unique and energy consuming action, it might not be very easy for him to perform across all formats on a consistent basis.

“Mustafizur is an exceptional bowler, whether he would play in one format, two formats or all three formats should be decided by himself. And he should take preparations regarding that,” said Warner to his SRH teammate, who turned 22 on Wednesday.
