However, the man in question isn’t much bothered about all this.

“I just don’t think about all that. Yes, I got dropped from the Test team, but that does not mean I am going to die. Even if I don’t play Test cricket again, will I not live?

“I think the wicket was really good and the ground (BKSP) was small as well. So, it was easier to score runs. When I came in to bat, we had lost two wickets. So Nasir [Hossain] bhai and I thought of staying at the wicket for as long as possible.
“I did not really think that I was going to make a 150-plus score. To me the innings began just like any other knock, but I continued to make it big and that felt really good,” he added.
