BAN vs PAK: ‘Team Needs To Believe They Can Win’ – Nurul Hasan Ahead Of T20 World Cup


Bangladesh T20I vice-captain Nurul Hasan Sohan said on Wednesday that his team needs to start believing that they can win if they wish to succeed. He added that our culture is such that we don’t to talk about our goals or ambitions, fearing failure

Nurul Hasan has the sort of attitude  that’s often lacking in Bangladesh cricket. He was expected to do the same in New Zealand for the triangular series. Shakib Al Hasan has been cleared to make the trip and join the team the day before their first game.

‘Team Needs To Believe They Can Win’ – Nurul Hasan

“If I say today that we want to win the World Cup, we don’t necessarily have to win it right away. But by saying such a thing repeatedly, maybe our next batch will feel more confident about winning the World Cup. Maybe I won’t be around then, but the belief will be there,” said Nurul as quoted by ESPNcricinfo.

“We have to create this culture, notwithstanding the negative reactions. When we don’t play well, we should be ready for criticism. But we have to start talking about success; we have to believe it. If three or four of us start getting into form, it could get Bangladesh good results,” he added.

Litton Das and Nurul competed for the T20I captaincy after Mahmudullah was sacked.  Nurul gained a reputation as a capable captain of Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi in domestic cricket. He also benefited from his ability to work well with others.

I didn’t think too much About Captaincy – Nurul Hasan

“I don’t think there was a lot of joy when I became the captain, but I had a duty towards fulfilling the responsibility. I like taking on challenges. I didn’t think too much about it, which meant I was not emotional. I think I was mainly thought about the challenge at hand. I try to enjoy whatever challenge I am facing.”

Such emotions are uncommon in Bangladesh cricket, where players and officials try not to set themselves up for disappointment by raising their expectations. Nurul’s optimistic outlook comes from his own recent experiences. After nearly four years, his success in the Dhaka Premier League T20 last year earned him a recall to the T20I team.
