But in the sixth overcame a hammering in the hamstring.
He said, “I used to bowl for four or five overs, but Rohit and Virat were making quick runs at that time. At that time, I felt that it would have been good if I practiced bowling in these situations and so I threw more runs. ‘ Murtaza stayed in the dressing room for a long time during India’s innings while vice-captain Shakib Al Hasan was captaincy in his absence.
