I Don’t Play For Fifties- Liton 

Bangladesh batsman Liton Kumar Das said on Wednesday that he is happy to contribute with the bat but added that he did not lose sleep as he was not getting runs in the ongoing cash-rich tournament.

Liton, who scored 45 runs from 50 balls that included two fours and four sixes, said that he was hardly feeling any pressure despite remaining a pale shadow of his potential in the last five games where he failed to deliver miserably making 13,14,8,0,2 before coming up with some runs.

“I don’t play for fifty. I don’t feel like I would change as Liton Das. We were discussing during drinks about how to play out that over normally and then play in an attacking mode from the next over but somehow if we managed to play out that over, after drinks we could play freely and that’s what I regret,’ he said.

Liton added that Tigers suffers in the shortest format as the middle-orders fail to rotate strike makes and construct their innings on ones and twos.

“It can be the case,” Liton said when he was asked whether national cricket team suffers due to the fact middle-orders fails to rotate the strike.

“Firstly we are not power hitters and we don’t have too much strength on our body like hitting sixes at will but you can see (players playing in ones and twos) are scoring runs regularly in T20s,” he said.

“How are they playing? They are playing on ones and twos and ones and twos and in-between looking for boundaries and we have the same challenge and we are trying to do that (construct our innings on rotating the strike) and hopefully we will learnt it on the coming days,” he said. 

“We didn’t score runs in the middle overs and we have lacking as batters about how to score in the middle overs. Even Bangladesh team suffers from this,” he said.

“If we score in the Powerplay, we can’t play in the middle overs. If runs come in middle overs, we can’t finish well. We are still under a learning process. It’s not like we are a very good T20 team. During the BPL games, we can learn how to play our game in the middle overs,” he added.
