“I think he showed great technique, a lot of patience and temperament as well. I think a week ago, he hit 173 against the India A attack, which got him into the Test side I think, where he also batted on the fourth day through that India A game. Similarly, I batted beautifully today against a quality attack, the launch on Day 4 was not easy, very, very impressive.
The 24-year-old left-handed batsman recently scored a sensational 173 runs in the first unofficial Test against India A to help Bangladesh A level the game.

“It’s good to see him batting under so much pressure because obviously they knew that winning the test match was not their first thought, it’s about batting time, it’s about taking as much as possible, I thought he showed great temperament.”
Bangladesh’s opening duo Najmul Hossain Shanto and Zakir Hasan added 124 runs from 277 balls before Umesh Yadav broke the partnership by dismissing Najmul Hossain Shanto in the fourth innings.
