Preparing myself to take up the role of finisher: Sohan
Out of favour Bangladesh wicket-keeper batsman Nurul Hasan Sohan vowed to use this Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League (BBPL) as the tool to firmly establish him as the finisher, something which the national team is searching for their World T20 squad and also for the ODI squad.
The 26-year-old Sohan has already played three Tests, two ODIs and nine T20 Internationals but just couldn't cement his place in the team, a thing for which he lamented vehemently.
But the lad from Khulna doesn't want that the regret for not cementing place in the national team, to haunt him further, and therefore he has taken this upcoming BBPL as his final frontier to quell all the doubt over him.
"Everyone sees how many 50 or 100 you are making but I think 10-run is important if it helps the team to win the game," Sohan said here today.
"Suppose I hit 100 but my team loses the game, then the value of 100 is nothing to me."
Sohan knows in the current Bangladesh set up it is impossible for him to bat up in the order. And since he would have to bat in lower down the order, it is important to finish the game well.
He said that he is ready to take up the challenge of finishing the game well by scoring some significant runs. -BSS
