New pace sensation Sumon Khan wants to prove his BCB President's Cup performance was not a fluke at all by keeping up his good work in the upcoming Bangabandhu T20 Cup too.
Sumon Khan finished the 50-over tournament with nine wickets, including 5-38 in the final that earned him the best bowler of the match award. He was also one of the five players to get the President's Special Award.
His performance in that tournament helped him get into the limelight and now he has a chance to make more headlines in the Bangabandhu T20 Cup after Fortune Barishal recruited him in the players' draft.
Sumon is now eying a bigger role in his team's cause, stating that he wants to take Fortune Barishal "to the final".
"I have played well in the BCB President's Cup and now my target is to better the performance in the Bangabandhu T20 Cup," Sumon Khan said to the media on Monday.
"I have to keep up the performance. I want to help Barishal win matches. I actually want to take Barishal to the final," he added.
While most of the cricketers go the path of aged-level cricket, Sumon Khan didn't come from there.
In fact, he was studying in BBA in North South University but such was the passion for cricket that he left the university after his fourth semester to pursue studies in BKSP and to become a cricketer.
His passion is key to what position he reaches this moment. Sumon Khan knows that expectation is high on him after showing such performances in senior-level cricket. But he has the confidence to fulfil the expectation.
"I have been involved with Barishal team for the first time. I have a dream to play the final. I have a plan to give my best for the Barishal team and help team's cause," he remarked.
The much-anticipated five-team Bangabandhu T20 Cup will begin on November 24. All of the matches of the tournament will be held at the 'Home of Cricket' Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in the city.
