Bangladesh Test captain Mominul Haque tipped top-order batsman Nazmul Hossain Shanto as the most talented young cricketer among a current lot of the Bangladesh cricket, stating that he has every capability to play a long time for the national team.
Mominul made his intuition about Shanto during a recent Facebook live chat with Cricfrenzy.com in the midst of the coronavirus worldwide pandemic said that Shanto has a rosy perspective for the Tigers if he can maintain and groom himself well in the right way.
“I think Nazmul Hossain Shanto has a good prospect as a very promising cricketer who can serve the Bangladesh team for a longer period,” said Mominul Haque, who is considered as the most consistent batsman in Bangladesh Test cricket.
“If everything goes well for him, he can deliver a lot to the Bangladesh team,” Mominul said while he was attending facebook live chat program, organised by the country’s leading web portal Cricfrenzy.com.
Shanto had got an abrupt chance to play a Test in New Zealand in 2017 when he was traveling with the national team as an additional player. He passed a shaky time after that. Later he yet another returned to his good form with the bat that has been started from the last Bangabandhu-Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), where he smashed the only T-20 hundred for any local player.
As of now he is backed by the new management and coaching staff as the prospective players for the national side.
Mominul has a good sense of picking would-be players for Bangladesh cricket. Once the left-handed batsman revealed Liton Kumar Das will be a top-grade player when the wicketkeeper-batsman played just one season of domestic circuit.
The captain also thought Yasir Ali Chowdhury Rabbi and Pinak Ghosh to be the future stars of the Tigers’ tent.
“There is Yasir Ali Chowdhury Rabbi, who will be a good option regarding the Checks. I think there’s one left-handed opener, Pinak Ghosh, who needs some improvement but he has the chance to be a future prospect of the Tigers,” the 28-year-old Mominul concluded.
