“Obviously I have almost played 160-170 games so I think there should be maturity. And I think we, the four-five seniors in the team, have more responsibility. But we still do mistakes as at the end of the day, we are all humans. I think the less mistakes we do in such situations, like against India, the team will benefit more. As I told you, everyone won’t play well in every game or tournament. But whoever plays well, it’s his responsibility to make it big,” he told Dhaka Tribune.

The left hander thinks there is lot more he can offer to the Bangladesh team with his batting and fielding performances.

“I don’t know but I have been batting well for the last two and a half years. I’ve been scoring quite heavily. But I personally think there is still a lot more I can offer to the team. I think if I can get better in all three departments – batting, fitness and fielding – I have a lot to offer yet.

“I want to get those hundreds, although, I haven’t set any target of scoring centuries. But I make sure that when I am batting on 70s and 80s, I have to convert into a hundred. That will be special. At the end of the day 70s, 80s even 90s doesn’t count. Only hundreds count,” he added.
