So I played around with statsguru a bit and it looks like much of his subpar ODI record is due to the initial struggles in 2015-16 when he was clearly not ready for international cricket.

last year he averages 32, which isn't bad. 7 better than his career average which means he is improving.

Wow...what a wonderful inning, how he build his innings mainly with singles (and supporting sakib) and then opened up a bit and start hitting.

It was a delight watching this sakib,-Litton dual batting and ending the innings.

Even then he was averaging in low twenties before last two matches against Ireland and WI. I still think his lack of control over his shots will get him in trouble on bigger grounds.

he clearly has trouble concentrating for long periods. even today he was playing careless shots at the end. probably needs the assistance of a sports psychologist.

fantastic Litton. what an innings under pressure when we just lost two quick wickets.

he is good when the ball doesnt swing much and he is even better against spin I believe. definitely a middle order batsmen.

if Sabbir can somehow come back into form, we would have a crazy batting line up.

I would take him over mithun anyday. Liton has weaknesses but boy he can score some quickfire runs. He looks to be a busy player. Just needs to sort out mental aspect of his game. May be, in this current setup coming at number 4, will be a blessing in disguise for him. His initial jitters with the moving ball wont be a factor and he can play same sort of role that shakib is playing at the moment. No 3 and 4 is all about keeping the momentum going in the middle overs, playing out spin well and building a solid foundation without losing wickets.

He officially proved that he is a class apart, he can be placed at any position at any match situation in any sort of tournament and still will finish on a high note with quality.


He never played in Eng.
Never played at any high level tourney like WC.
Hardly played in 5th position in International matches.

And then finishes chasing 300+ successfully.

And he is a dedicated keeper!

Wow. What a performer. Sensational.

Liton is such a classy bat, He gets into position so early for his attacking shots and then caresses them wherever he wants to hit them. Would pay to watch this guy bat.

Backed him all along ahead of Mithun. No denying his class just needs consistency.

First BD batsmen to score a 100 in a tournament final (Asia cup)
First BD batsmen to score an unbeaten 50+ on WC debut.

He still has his weaknesses, but his temperament is incredible.

By the way, Liton looks like an absolute badsss. And those sixes are the only thing that overdid Cottrell's runout. Some brutal hitting there.

Liton is in the same league as Soumya. These two can effortlessly maintain 100+ strike rate. I am so glad we finally gave Liton a chance. Against teams like Australia and India we have to accept our attack will concede 320+

The good thing with Mosaddek and Liton is that for the death overs, we now have the firepower to get 80-90 runs. Before we were looking at Mushy and Shakib to not only to lay the foundation but to also play the big shots in the final powerplay. But now with this lineup we just need Shak and mushy to get us close during the big chase. If we had Liton in the NZ game the outcome could have been different.

The thing about litton is, he is an effortless cricketer. Soumya and Litton might be similar but they are different. Soumya is a dasher. Litton is more effortless. He tries to get the singles and twos. He picked the gaps when there were no boundaries. He plays some crunching shots and can hit sixes.

If litton gets set, he will score at 100+. And soumya will score at 100+ from the get go. If you want to win in modern cricket you cant rely on Mithun. Mithun can only dream of playing such an innings. He isnt a match winner. Litton is. And if we had picked litton against NZ we might have been in a better spot. Still super innings yesteraday

That’s why Sabbir is/was important to the team but unfortunately his lack of development has really taken a lot away from the team that it could’ve had. imagine a team consisting all of soumya, liton and Sabbir but they happened to be more consistent and all averaged 35+ (like the current seniors) soumya and Sabbir strike at close to 100 and liton is 85/90.
