Previously, Mujeeb started his career for Kings XI Punjab in the IPL in 2018. He claimed 14 wickets in his IPL debut season and conceded runs at less than 7 runs as an over. He had a slow 2019 as he picked fewer wickets and conceded runs.
He had an economy of 10.05 runs in IPL 2019 and also conceded 66 runs in a game; the most by a spinner in an IPL match. He was later dropped after claiming only 3 wickets in 5 innings. Sign up now and claim your first bonus at 12BET Sportsbook!
BPL gave him another chance and he surely did not disappoint as he is now one of the best young wicket takers. He has taken 8 wickets in 6 matches so far and he was included in top five wicket-takers. Another impressive thing about him is his economy rate that read only 5.08 and also bowled two maidens.
Meanwhile, Dawid Malan became the first player from England to smash three T20 centuries in a calendar year. His unbeaten 100 in this match was his 3rd century in the Twenty20 format in 2019. Also, Malan’s hundred was the 20th ton in the history of the Bangladesh Premier League.
