Mushfiq said that it was not dedicated to anyone and added that he never celebrated for revenge or protest.
As soon as Mushfiqur Rahim reached his hundred after lunch, he made a sword impression with his bat before opening his helmet.
Mushfiqur, later on, went to score an unbeaten 203, becoming the first Bangladeshi batsman to score three double hundreds. His innings helped Bangladesh reach a mammoth 560-6 (dec.) and with two Zimbabwe wickets in the bag, Bangladesh were in complete control after day three.
In the post-match press conference, Mushfiq was asked about his century celebration. In reply, the veteran batsman said that it was not dedicated to anyone and added that he never celebrated for revenge or protest.
"That was not dedicated to anyone. I have never done such outrageous celebrations. In my short career, I have never celebrated for revenge or protest. I always think that I fight with myself and will continue to do so," Mushfiq said.
Mushfiq also did a unique celebration after reaching double hundred as he made a roaring expression with his hands and mouth. Asked about that, Mushfiq said that it was dedicated to his son, Shahroj Mayan, who loved dinosaurs. Mushfiq said that he was just trying to imitate the expression his son did after seeing dinosaurs.
