The mistakes that the batsmen made in the practice match will not be repeated, said by Sabbir: “The wicket was better than what I expected. Some batsman played really good, some got out early. I hope these mistakes won’t happpen again.” 

The 25 year old batsman scored 125 runs in the practice match and that will boost up his confidence, he told the reporters: “Obviously it will boost up my confidence. I scored fifty in both the innings. I hope I can play in the first test In Sha Allah. I wont be overconfident. My target will be to score lot of runs. I will try to convert my fifties into a big score.”

Sabbir Rahman has been in the spotlight of criticism for a while now and is yet to prove his ability in the longer format of the game. After a good performance in the practice match, the stage is all set for Sabbir to do something big against the Proteas.
