Yesterday, at a ceremony hosted by the Bangladesh Sports Press Association at the Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel in the nation’s capital, Liton Das was presented with the top Kool-BSPA (Bangladesh Sports Press Association) sports award. This was in recognition of the fact that Das had an outstanding performance in all forms in the previous year. Even though he has not performed as well as he did in previous years, the top hitter for Bangladesh has stated that he is not concerned about his present condition.
During the course of the previous year, Liton scored runs in all three forms, averaging 44.44, 52.45, and 28.63 in Tests, ODIs, and T20 Internationals, respectively. He has scored two fifties in a total of nine one-day internationals so far this year, but his Twenty20 International batting average has gone up while his ODI batting average has gone down.
Liton’s current form is extremely important for Bangladesh’s chances of doing well in the One-Day International World Cup, which will be held in India. Liton, on his alone, did not appear to be very concerned by the lack of form.
“It’s impossible to have a good game of cricket every day. On certain days, your performance will be strong, while on other days, it will be weak. In point of fact, I have no cause for concern. After earning the Sports Person of the Year award as well as the Cricketer of the Year award for male category yesterday, he informed reporters that he would just continue to practice and see what the future holds.
As of Monday, the Tigers are scheduled to begin their training camp in preparation for the sole test match that will be played against Afghanistan the following month. According to Liton, the immediate priority should be the test against Afghanistan rather than the World Cup.
There is still a considerable amount of time till the World Cup. It’s possible that we’ll set up camp the day after tomorrow, but until then, we’ll get started with that.
