I have nothing left to prove: Imrul Kayes
If asked who is the most neglected cricketer in the national team? Feel free to name Imrul Kayes. The left-handed batsman, who has repeatedly proved himself, has become a bit disappointed.
The door of the national team is always open for Imrul. But he’s very much irregular in the team. After doing well in domestic cricket, he makes his appearance in the main team but after one series he was also excluded from the squad. It is as if destiny has become for the left-handed batsman.
But Imrul did not get the benefit recently even after scoring runs in domestic cricket. He last played ODI format for Bangladesh in 2018 and T20I in 2017. Despite playing Test in India last year, he was dropped from five-day cricket against Pakistan and Zimbabwe.
Imrul was in superb form in this year’s Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). He scored scored 442 runs in 12 matches on an average of close to 50 for Chattogram Challengers. He had overcome the injury found in the BPL. He also played in Bangladesh Cricket League (BCL). The 33-year-old cricketer did not do badly in the bat in BCL too.
He had been still neglected in the national team. He was slightly upset over such a question by the media. He said with a lot of disappointment that if he had to prove it again, there would be nothing else to do.
“I think I’m blocked, I’m right in my place. I’m playing at my own style. Now I have nothing left to prove.”
Imrul expressed his anger at being dropped from the team. He said, “When I can’t play in an international tournament or a series, I feel bad. I think if I had a chance I would have sacrificed myself a lot for the team.”
