Towhid Hridoy, an U-19 World Cup winner who played some good knocks in the recently-concluded BCB President’s Cup, said that featuring in the tournament was a high point for him as he got to share the dressing room with many seniors from the national side.
Hridoy, who batted in the middle-order, contributed with the bat while the batting was looking leggy. He however said that he had not fully utilized his opportunities to the fullest.
“Satisfaction is actually high for everyone and it was the same for me. Maybe I couldn’t utilize my opportunities fully but I tried to contribute to my team as a batsman. Perhaps I could have done better in some occasions but hopefully I will overcome in the future,” Towhid said.
The right-handed batsman was able to share the dressing room with Mushfiqur Rahim and said the latter’s discipline was exemplary.
“The biggest thing was to be able to share everything with the seniors in the dressing room. I got to learn a lot especially from Mushfiqur bhai and how he stays disciplined all the time,” he remarked.
HP team are training under new coach Toby Radford and Towhid said the players were trying to integrate the new things they were learning. BCB’s T20 tournament is coming up soon but first Towhid wanted to evolve in order to perform in the future.
“HP is a place to get yourself well prepared for the next stage during the off season. We’re focusing on the programs the new coach is giving us and when the time comes, we will focus on the T20 tournament,” he concluded.
