Asia Cup 2018: 5 top performers from the tournament
#3 Mushfiqur Rahim
Mushfiqur Rahim was the key batsman for Bangladesh, who helped them to reach the finals of the Asia Cup 2018. Every time they had a bad start he was the man who rescued his team.
Rahim's 144 off 150 balls against Sri Lanka in their first match was one of the best knocks of the tournament. They were in all sorts of trouble when they lost 2 wickets for just 1 run. But Mushfiqur played that brilliant knock and helped Bangladesh win the match.
Mushfiqur played a similar inning against Pakistan in the super four stage which was a virtual semi-final. Bangladesh was struggling for 12-3 when Mushfiqur walked out to bat. He steadied the ship and took Bangladesh to a respectable total but he missed his century by just one run.
Mushfiqur Rahim scored 302 runs in 5 matches at an average of 60.40. He was the third highest run-getter in the Asia Cup 2018.
