Sabbir Rahman said yesterday that he was a bit emotional while celebrating his maiden ODI hundred against New Zealand in the third match in Dunedin on February 20.

“No reaction actually… it was my first century and that's why I got emotional and I didn't gesture towards anyone. The hundred was desperately needed and everybody has their own way of celebration. I request that it not be taken personally,” Sabbir, who made a talking gesture with his hand after the ton, told reporters ahead of today's Dhaka Premier League T20 competition.

“Maybe it's my destiny to always play under pressure and maybe I have to always play under pressure. But I always try to see a match as my last chance and that's why I try to do something in every match,” added the right-hander, who believes the maiden hundred gave him huge confidence.

Sabbir said that he has nothing to say about his chances of playing in the Tests in New Zealand as the team management is the sole authority regarding the issue.

“I will play for Abahani in the league and now I want to focus only on that,” said Sabbir, who was initially picked up by Uttara Sporting Club but later joined defending champions Abahani through negotiations.
