Shamim feels lucky to be part of three series wins
Shamim Hossain was included in the side for Bangladesh's T20I series in Zimbabwe following his exploits in the Dhaka Premier League T20 tournament and he spoke about his luck while talking to the media today.
Bangladesh won the T20I series away to Zimbabwe 2-1 before their triumphs at home against Australaia and New Zealand. Asked about his challenge at the World Cup, he said: "It's a big stage where there will be world class players and world class bowlers also, so it will be a big challenge for me.
Shamim played just one game in the five-match New Zealand series where batsmen were not able to find their flow due to the slower nature of the wicket. Shamim said that the team's seniors will be in better shape batting wise. "Wicket can do you a lot of favours. As you have seen, the wicket here was different and normally World Cup wickets are good. Given the senior players we have, I am quite hopeful they will do very well. Our main batsmen were not successful here and I think they will do well there," he reiterated.
Considering that the recent series results are a high point for the Tigers in the shortest format, Shamim said he felt lucky to be part of the side.
"I consider myself very lucky that after I came in, we won three series. So, we are very hopeful of doing well in the World Cup," he said.
