One of the best things that happen with a player is when a captain believes in you. The same confidence is shown by the skipper of the Bangladesh squad, Mashrafe Mortaza in the 24-year old, Liton Das. Das received this ultimate boost ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup where the captain is singing the praises of the young player. The captain of the Bangladeshi ODI team, Mashrafe Mortaza believes that Liton is a very destructive batsman and his presence in the team will be highly regarded in the upcoming extravaganza of the World Cup.
Das has established his name in the limited overs series and has the ability of partnering perfectly with the Bangladeshi opener, Tamim Iqbal, making the opening set of the team highly stable and impactful. Not only this, but many other people reckon the same, after seeing Liton bat the way he does since the Asia Cup 2018.
Liton bats well under pressure
Liton recently played a 38-ball 27 knock in the Dhaka Premier League on Monday although he has had an unforgettable start in his career until the 2018. He played an impressive inning in the Asia Cup final year after he converted his maiden half-century into the one-day internationals with his monstrous hundred. Then 23-year old, Liton has constructed the best ODI innings against the best teams in the world while batting under pressure.
Mashrafe reckons that consistency is highly required within the players
The same is reckoned by the Bangladeshi skipper, Mashrafe Mortaza who is highly impressed win his ton in the Asia Cup last year. He further said that, Liton can be a destroyer in the World Cup as he has the capacity. “We may have seen the nature of Liton during certain matches in later past. I can refer to the Asia Cup last where he hit a ton. I figure he can be a destroyer in the World Cup. He has that capacity. Our batting coach has been working with him for quite a while now,” said Mashrafe.
Although Liton has shown sides of being a good batsman, the only concern is consistency. “The most essential thing is consistency. On the off chance that he can play his regular game, it’ll be a major favorable position for us in the World Cup,” said Mashrafe.
