Team Bangladesh’s pacer Ebadat Hossain has been leaving an impression of continuity with the ball in recent times. Although once played only as a Test bowler, this pacer has also prepared himself in white ball cricket with time. But to survive in international cricket, there is no alternative to constant innovation in bowling. Ebadat is learning cutter delivery from that realization.
Since the beginning of his career, Patu has been worshipped mainly for speed. Can deliver yorkers with speed, slower slower and bouncer. But the number of deliveries bowlers give to attack the opponent’s batsmen has no meaning. One of the most feared deliveries by pacers is the cutter. Therefore, the focus of worship is now taught.
Recently, during the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), he spoke about his bowling in an interview with the media. The Bangladeshi pacer said, “I can always bowl on pace. I can deliver yorkers with ease. But I think I need to learn to cut. I can do both cuts. But I need to get more accurate with practice.”
Another Bangladesh pacer, Mustafizur Rahman, is acclaimed for his cutter in world cricket. Talking about learning from him about bowling, Ebadat added, “Mustafiz is very mature as a cutter. I learned it from him. He also corrected me in terms of slower and bouncer. Playing with him always helps me a lot. .”
Note that Ebadat is playing for Fortune Barisal in this year’s BPL. So far he has controlled the ball. However, the innovation that he brought in bowling, the effect of it was not seen much on the field. However, there are still many matches left in the tournament. This pacer may want to show his best by applying the cutter there. And to do so, Ebadat himself uttered words of confidence.
