Liton Das first Bangladeshi to have 5 tons in least innings
CRICDOT DESK : There is no question about his ability. Batting style is eye-catching. Twenty-two yards is like an artist’s brush stroke. The only problem is the lack of continuity.
Liton Kumar Das has been trying to make up for that lack in recent times. As well as enriching the record. After scoring a Test century against Pakistan, he scored another century in the second ODI against Afghanistan today. With his and Mushfiqur’s bat, Bangladesh made a big score of 306 runs.
In this century, Liton Das has written a great record. Liton now holds the record for the fewest innings in the history of Bangladesh cricket to score five ODI centuries. He has only 49 innings. Shakib Al Hasan is at number two with five centuries in 93 innings. The country’s best opener Tamim Iqbal liked 141 innings and m. Dependable Mushfiqur Rahim likes 163 innings.
