‘We want to negate Shakib and Mustafizur’s influences’


Australia player Glenn Maxwell says that Australia want to negate the impact that Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman can have on the Test series beginning on August 27. While Bangladesh have not played a Test series against Australia in 11 years, however Maxwell knows about Mustafiz and Shakib’s abilities.“Mustafiz is obviously an exceptional bowler we faced during the IPL, in that first big breakthrough season. Obviously, his pace sort of dropped off with the extra workload.“He is still an outstanding bowler – he still got the ability to swing it and he has got an unbelievable change up with the slower ball.He also stated that Mustafizur’s cutters were difficult to read due to his flexible wrist work.Regarding  Shakib he said: “He is a really experienced player – been number one for all-rounders for a while and he is an excellent cricketer.“They are two guys who we have to play really well to try and negate their influences on the Test series,” Maxwell concluded.
