It certainly looked as if everyone had enjoyed his innings. Chris Gayle wanted to know where his bat came from. "It's an English willow, Tamim bhai [Iqbal] got it for me," a bewildered Abul told the media at the press conference, also his first one of this scale. The feat had yet to sink in for the 20-year-old, barely an hour after the day's play.

"I just wanted to bat like a batsman, that's all. [Mahmudullah] Riyad bhai just told me to bat like a batsman," he said. "When I played Under-15 cricket, I was a batsman, then I became a pace bowler."

And his mantra with the bat was simple: "I just wanted to survive the good ball, and take advantage of the bad ball."

Why batting can seem so difficult for our batsmen???? according to Abul, it is so simple, just survive the good balls and punish the bad ones!
