The hard-hitting batsman of Bangladesh Cricket team, Sabbir Rahman Rummon literally failed to prove his batting ability in the Champions Trophy 2017. But ahead of the Test series against Australia, he has been working hard to improve his batting technique and he thinks it will help him to get a place in the Test squad.
Sabbir started his career in the late-order and he was successful there. But head coach, Chandika Hathurusingha and other stuffs wanted him to bat at no.3.
He is a brave man and didn’t fear to change his batting position at that time. However, the change didn’t work as planned and Sabbir failed to score runs regularly in that position. Before the Champions Trophy 2017, he was unsuccessful in the tri-nation series too. Apart from the inability to score runs, his batting technique was criticized too.
But Sabbir is not demoralized and thus he has been working harder in the conditioning camp. Meanwhile, Bangladesh Cricket team have got new batting coach, Mark O’Neil and the right-handed batsman is working on his techniques under his guidance.
While talking to the media on Friday at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong, Sabbir Rahman said, “I am working on my batting technique. I had some problems with my back-lift. At the moment, our batting consultant, Mark O’Neil is helping me to overcome from that problem.
He added, “I’m also working with my grip. While facing new ball what should I do and also increasing patience while crafting a big innings are also in my to-do list.”
Sabbir concluded, “I am not thinking about my batting position. I will bat wherever my team will ask me to do. Coach [Chandika Hathurusingha] has not discussed with me about that yet. If needed, then I am always ready to play at No.6.”
