Bangladesh batsman Mominul Haque said on Sunday the remaining two matches in franchise-based first-class competition Bangladesh Cricket League could be his last chance to prepare for West Indies tour.
Bangladesh are expected to travel to India to play a short series against Afghanistan in June before they travel to West Indies later in the month for a full-fledged series against the Caribbean side.
Mominul, who plays for Islami Bank East Zone in BCL, is unlikely to play in the Afghan series, meaning the next two matches in the tournament could be his final opportunity to get some practice before the crucial tour.
‘Maybe this could be my last four-day match before going to the West Indies. I don’t know if I will get a chance to play after this. So, I will carry the same mentality here which I usually show in Tests,’ Mominul told reporters in Mirpur.
Momniul struck a double century at the start of the tournament earlier in January, which helped get some runs also in the following Test series against Sri Lanka.
His century in both innings, being the first Bangladeshi, helped the Tigers eke out a draw in the first Test in Chittagong, though the one-down batsman could not repeat the form in the next Test in Dhaka.
‘As a batsman, I always wish to score as much as possible in every tournament. I will try to keep doing it, and the main fact is, as a team we have a huge possibility to be the champions,’ said Mominul.
Mominul’s East Zone will take on BCB North Zone in their next round in Mirpur from on Tuesday.
