“Practice matches will be the key”- Akram Khan
2 February 2015, Nirapad News: When one talks about Bangladesh’s cricketing literature, there’s always room for Akram Khan. The burly batsman, whose lofty hits took Bangladesh into their first ever World Cup, needs no introduction. What he did is now a glorious part of Bangladesh’s cricket history.
The big man knows better than anybody else as to what kind of emotions develop among the country’s cricket fraternity when it comes to World Cup. But when he says that the current team is capable of beating any team in the world, he is not filling the shoes of just another overly dramatic fan; he has after all seen these boys up close.
According to the former national captain, momentum is all what this team needs. And for that, he wants the Tigers to do well in their first four matches.
