Never cared for personal achievements: Bangladesh’s Sabbir Rahman

Dhaka, Feb 29 (IANS) After smashing a match-winning knock in Bangladesh’s resounding Asia Cup win against Sri Lanka, all-rounder Sabbir Rahman said that he never cares about personal achievements.

Sabbir cracked a career best 80 off 54 balls on Sunday evening to lift Bangladesh to a competitive total of 147/7 which the hosts successfully defended to seal their first ever Twenty20 victory against Sri Lanka at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium here.

Sabbir’s knock is Bangladesh’s fourth highest in T20 Internationals.

“I never think about my runs. I play for the team. If I score just one run in the team’s victory, I am happy. I did not even think about a century today,” Rahman was quoted as saying by on Monday.

The 24-year old, who is a T20 specialist, said he is not thinking about playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) or other T20 tournaments abroad.

“I’m not really thinking about any leagues abroad. I am completely focused on my skills now. I want to improve every day,” he said.

“I’ve been trying to contribute at No. 3. I hope I can maintain my consistency in the nest matches.”

Bangladesh are now second in the points table behind India with two wins in three matches.
