Age is never an issue for legendary cricketers like Mohammad Rafique. He useed to hit boundaries all over the ground and take wickets for fun. He continues to do the same even at the age of 50. "Age is not an issue, he is still the same," one of his teammates joked.
Rafique did prove that age is not an issue with some sublime performances in the LCT T10.10.
Legends Cricket Tournament (LCT) 10.10 took place in Cox's Bazar from 18 to 20 February where Rafique showed his class once again. He bagged 8 wickets and scored 75 runs from 5 matches. He also became the man of the tournament.
With the help of Rafique's brilliance, Acme Strikers won the tournament in style on Saturday.
They beat Expo Raiders captained by Khaled Mahmud Sujon by 30 runs in the all important final. Rafique at one point was on a hat-trick with the ball.
Batting first. Acme Strikers posted 104 runs on the board for the loss of 8 wickets. Ehsanul Haque Sejan played a brilliant knock of 44 runs.
