DHAKA, Dec 4, 2019 (BSS)- Chattogram Challengers formed a team which could
give every team a run for their money, said its wicket-keeper Nurul Hasan
Sohan.

Speaking to the media during the practice session of the team at the
Academy Ground of Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, the wicket-keeper
batsman hoped that his team won’t face that much trouble to seal the first
four spot.

“Every seven teams of the tournament are balanced but I am hopeful that we
would do better,” he said here today.

“Our initial target is to seal the first four spot to make us eligible for
the play-off stages after which we’ll definitely give shot to clinch the
trophy.”

All of the teams of Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League (BBPL), which is
a special edition of BPL to celebrate the birth centenary of Father of the
Nation Sheikh Mujibur Rahman has officially started their practice session.
Chattogram Challengers though didn’t get whole team in the practice session
as of now, Sohan believes that won’t be problematic for them to make a proper
co-ordination.

“Some of our foreign players are yet to reach the country. The officials
could say when they will. But from our part, we are taking the best
preparation. Hopefully there will be no problem to have a proper co-
ordination with the team,” Sohan, who played three Tests, two ODIs and nine
T20 Internationals for Bangladesh, added.

He said the players are determined to give their best to clinch the trophy.

“In T20 cricket anything can happen. Those who will play well on their
given day will win the match. It is as simple as that. Here we saw every team
is well balanced, so as we. I think if we can give our best in the ground, we
will emerge out as winner. That’s the target indeed,” he opined.

Sohan believes that the BPL is the platform to enhance the standard of
Bangladesh’s cricket as they get the chance to share the dressing room with
quality foreign players.

“BPL is always challenging because you will be up against quality foreign
players. It would help you to how you should react in pressurized situation.
The standard of the foreign players in this tournament is really good and we
can learn many things from them after sharing the dressing room,” he said.

“The local players know how tough it would be to play against those foreign
players. From what, I have seen that players are ready to take up the
challenge.”
