Liton Das proves his worth one more time
Despite being an in form batsman, Liton couldn’t get a place in the staring XI of any ODIs. And that didn’t help Bangladesh anyway as his replacement Anamul Haque failed miserable in the ODI series.
However, after some good performances in the Nidashas trophy, Liton has made his place intact in the T20I team. And the player didn’t disappoint after the opportunity was given.
Liton just played quite of a similar innings which he played against Sri Lanka in Nidahas trophy. This time with even more sensibly. With 6 fours and 3 massive sixes, he scored 61 off just 31 balls and helped Bangladesh to reach fifty in under 4 overs.
He played a major role in his side’s 19-run victory and rightly so he was awarded man of the match for his maiden fifty in the T20 format. He also won the fastest fifty and safest player award tonight.
After getting the man of the match award, Liton said: “It is definitely a big win for our team,” he says. “They are a very good team… they are the world champions. The pitch was similar to the surface on our country. This is my first fifty and I’m lucky.”
