Even a few days ago, Liton Das had to listen to so many harsh words due to his T20 performance. But what a great rhythm he shifted in red ball. Whether the team does well or not, his bat in the Tests is shining according to the rules.
Leading Indian commentator Harsha Bhogle had earlier predicted that Liton would do well in the international arena. He was naturally overwhelmed to see the predictions come true.
Liton Das showed great skill with the bat when his teammates fell face down in the Christchurch Test. He was dismissed for 8 in the first innings but scored a century in the second innings under impossible pressure. The team has tried hard to avoid the innings rate. The Kiwi bowlers bravely faced the third century of their career.
Harsha was watching Liton's batting as if he is a fan. Harsha, who watched the Christchurch Test with attention, tweeted several times about Liton during the third day's play.
He wrote in his first tweet, "It is a good exercise sometimes to see how players you predicted big things for, turn out. I didn't get it right with Kusal Mendis but seem to have done okay with Liton Das. Mixed results for Shai Hope. Now to see how Kevin Peterson turns out."
Liton couldn't take Bangladesh's innings too far as none of his teammates could reach the fifties. As a result, he could not avoid the defeat of the innings. However, with his batting, Liton is getting praise.
He also wrote, "Going further back, was right about Michael Clarke, wrong about Ashraful. Rohit and Rahul were no-brainers, as was KP. Wrong with Umar Akmal. Mixed so far with Shubman Gill and Sanju Samson".
