Shakib Al Hasan and Liton Das -- the two Bangladeshi players who appeared for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the last Indian Premier League, did not get into the draft for the upcoming IPL season.
Najmul Hossain Shanto will lead Bangladesh team in the two-match Test series at home against New Zealand later this month as a number of leading players, including Liton Das will be missing, informed BCB's cricket operations chairman Jalal Yunus.
"I think Liton’s got to battle with himself,” Sriram told The Daily Star before the team’s match against Australia today.
The opener and his wife are expecting the birth of their first child
Bangladesh opener Liton Das has returned to the country today following the win over Sri Lanka yesterday.
Bangladesh opener Liton Das had managed three starts at this World Cup -- a stat that cannot be considered poor given how abysmal the Tigers' overall batting performance has been throughout the mega event.
Liton Das has reunited with the Bangladesh side in Delhi today, Bangladesh Cricket Board's media and communications manager Rabeed Imam confirmed. The batter had returned to Bangladesh due to a family emergency on Wednesday.
It was learned that Liton and his wife are expecting their first child.
An attacking brand of cricket has been the name of the game in the ongoing ICC World Cup. India, with the aggressive batting-approach have led the way so far but for Bangladesh, however, the scenario is quite the opposite.
