CRICDOT DESK : Liton Das has come to understand that all criticism has to be answered with performance. When off-form, Liton Das is the target of choice for critics. He has not heard any criticism after losing his form in the last T20 World Cup. But Liton is expected to change the format. His walk in ODIs after Tests is also visually pleasing and fascinating.

The young opener has closed the mouths of all critics by scoring a century today. In the 41st over, the opener picked up Rashid Khan’s fifth career century by hitting a boundary. This is his first century against Afghanistan. Liton played 108 balls and hit 14 boundaries to score his fifth career century. Bangladesh won by a huge margin of 7 runs with his brilliant innings of 136 runs.

Liton also won the Matchsera award for his century. While accepting the award, Lytton revealed the secret of his century, “My goal was to play at least 35 overs as a top order batsman. If we can play that much then it will be more than 60 runs. I tried to make the innings as big as possible.

On the way to play this great innings, Liton made a record partnership of 202 runs with Mushfiqur Rahim for the third wicket. Mushfiqur, the companion of the memorable couple, says that Liton’s excitement seems to be more. “Of course it’s fun,” he said. I have a lot of partnerships with him.
