In this edition of BPL pacer Al-Amin Hossain is in a great touch. Grabbing 11 wickets in six matches he is the best bowler for Barisal Bulls. He also hauled five wickets with a hat-trick against Sylhet. In the last match against Rangpur on Thursday he took three wickets and after the match he said length ball is the key to his success.
In T20 naturally bowlers do not like to do the length balls as batters try to go for big hits. In that case Al-Amin thinks different. He believes there is more possibility to get wicket with the length ball in new ball as the batsman try to hit four or six in the first six overs.
He said, "Variation needs in T20. He has more possibility to take wicket who will bowl better in first six over. Because, batters try to score more runs in this period and there is more possibility to made mistakes. I personally think there is more possibility to get wicket with the top of length and hitting the top of stumps. I just try that."
On Thursday he grabbed the wickets of Soumya and Shakib in an over and Al-Amin said it was a big achievement. He also gave the credit to the wicket as it helped him a lot.
He said, ""Of course it is a big achievement. Because both of them are inform batsmen of national team. I will give the credit to the wicket. I get enough help from the wicket."
"Actually wicket helps me a lot. It was soaked. I thought the length ball would work there and tried to do that" he added.
In the first six overs Rangpur lost three vital wickets in the powerplay trying to play big shots. Al-Amin said they bowled well to get the wickets.
He said, "I think we bowled really well. The first six overs are powerplay and it is natural to try to utilise it."
