It was another night of achievements for the Bangladeshi duo Mustafizur Rahman and Mehedi Hasan Miraz in ESPN Cricinfo award. Mustafizur was awarded the best T 20 bowling of the year. The best debutant of the year award went to Mehedi. Incidentally, Mustafizur grabbed the best debutant award the previous year.

Mustafizur got the award for the outstanding performance against New Zealand in the World T-20. He came back from injury in the tournament. After some notable performance against Australia and India, Mustafiz saved his best for the kiwis. He grabbed 5 wickets for 22 runs, which remains as the best bowling of a Bangladeshi bowler in T-20 internationals.

Mehedi Hasan Miraz also starred with the ball in his debut year in international cricket. He got his Test cap against England last year and grabbed 7 wickets in his debut. But he was instrumental in the second match and took 12 wickets in a historic win over England. This also remains as the best figure for a Bangladeshi bowler in a Test match.
