Former Indian fast bowler Irfan Pathan has drawn comparisons between former India captain MS Dhoni and current Bangladesh T20I skipper Mahmudullah in the way of their leadership.

Pathan commented that Mahmudullah’s captaincy is quite similar like that of Dhoni.

“When you win a match against one of the best teams in the world, it helps in boosting your confidence and Mahmudullah had shown great qualities of a captain including the changes he made during the match,” Pathan said on Star Sports.

“There was a hint of Mahendra Singh Dhoni in his captaincy as he also used part-time bowlers after the power play which is a strategy often used by Dhoni.”

Bangladesh won their first ever T20I match against India in the first match of the series defeating the hosts by 7 wickets. Mushfiqur Rahim scored unbeaten 60 runs.

Pathan was the man-of-the-match at the inaugural ICC World T20 final that India won under Mahnedra Singh Dhoni’s captaincy.

Another former Indian performer spin maestro Harbhajan Singh praised Mushfiqur’s batting and said he could be the one to lead Bangladesh winning the series decider on November 10.

“Mushfiqur Rahim is a player with lot of experience, his ability to play both spin and pace bowling is great and he has the maximum responsibility in the Bangladesh squad in terms of batting which gives him an edge over Mahmudullah, who is also a good player for the Bangladesh team,” Harbhajan said.

India leveled the series winning the second match comprehensively by 8 wickets following a blistering knock from skipper Rohit Sharma.
