Bangladesh batsman Sabbir Rahman’s performances have been under the scanner for quite some time now. Batting at the top, he has done little to inspire the confidence of the team management which is now questioning his place in the playing XI. His form started to disintegrate when Bangladesh toured Ireland for a tri-series before the Champions Trophy. And in the Champions Trophy as well, he could do little to nothing with the bat.

He has been consistently failing at No. 3. The 25-year-old cricketer is however determined to return to good form and make his presence felt in the team. In an interview, the batsman said that he is working very hard and with determination to establish himself as an important top-order batsman for the Bangladesh team. He vouched to not get out quickly in the upcoming games.

“My goal is to become a complete number 3 batsman and contribute for my team by playing in that position. I will work hard to avoid getting out quickly and play bigger knocks at that position,” Sabbir told. However, he also admitted that he finds it difficult to face swing as well as fast deliveries. “I have some problems in facing the swinging and fast deliveries,” Sabbir told Ekattor TV.

Bangladesh to tour South Africa in September 

The Bangladeshi team will tour South Africa in September to play two Tests, three ODIs and two T20Is and Sabbir is determined to make his presence felt on that tour. He said he will try and solve all technical problems before the team leaves for South Africa.

“I will work so hard that I won’t face any problem against the fast bowlers in the South Africa tour,” Sabbir concluded.

The first Test between both the sides will be played from September 28 to October 2 at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom.
