Rabbi hopeful of international debut

The recently concluded Walton Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League (DPL) has witnessed some brilliant performances from the upcoming and aspiring cricketers of the country.


Among the many, Kamrul Islam Rabbi has been one of the uncapped players who showcased his talent and caught the eyes of the national selectors.

Undoubtedly, one of the best performers in the DPL this season has been Rabbi, who played for Victoria Sporting Club. Rabbi was the highest Bangladeshi wicket-taker in the tournament.

The 24-year old right-arm medium pacer bowled superbly to pick up 27 wickets at an economy rate of 5.48 with the best figures of 4-38, and led the fast bowling department of his side with great effect.

With the ability to bowl with both the new and the old ball, Rabbi offers a great package, and no doubt he is a future prospect for the Tigers in the upcoming days.

Rabbi is yet to make his international debut despite being called up for the 14-man ODI and T20 squad against Zimbabwe in November 2015.

Now, after being able to announce himself in grand style in the DPL of this season, the young pace sensation is eyeing to make his international debut.

“I got call from the national team just few months ago but I could not play any match. I always feel that I have to play for the national side. For this I have worked hard and done my perfect practice, which helped me in the field,” said the 24-year-old pacer.

“I am hopeful of playing for the national team. My work is to perform in the field. As I am performing well selectors must think about me.

“I’m focusing on both pace and variation, which banks on the condition of the wickets. If the wicket remains worse then we have to use variation but if the wicket remains good then pace becomes helpful,” Rabbi added.
