What more can you expect from a young reserve player from his first game in WC?

I know its just one game. But in this one game he was a gem.
Totally agreed, even a Litton critique cannot complain.You have to have tremendous ability to play your first game in the world cup and score 94*(69) coming at a situation where your team is in a precarious position.

The thing about litton is, he is the ideal batsman moving forward. Mithun or Imrul will play these good slow innings here or there but seldom strike it over 80. Litton came in and scored at 130+ without taking too much risk at the beginning. His 76 against Ireland was class too, effortless.

It was also great to see that he actively tries to rotate strike which Mithun, Sabbir and Riad can't do.

I hope he is consistent and alsp improve a few things, which includes his footwork when ball is bowled close the stumps
