Coach of Minister Group Rajshahi, Sarwar Imran, believes that former Bangladesh captain and the middle-order batsman of Rajshahi, Mohammad Ashraful, is close to play big innings in the ongoing Bangabandhu T20 Cup 2020.

In his last three innings, Ashraful posted 5, 25 not-out, and 5. Twice in this three innings, he trapped by run-outs, reports UNB.

“Ashraful is returning to his old shape tactically and technically. We are waiting for a big innings from him,” Sarwar told the media on Tuesday during a practice session of his team.

Sarwar, who has been working with Ashraful for the last two and a half month, said that Ashraful still has the chance to make a national comeback if he continues working hard.

“It’s (Ashraful’s national comeback) depending on him. He is getting his old shape back. He is proving his techniques again. But still, he has to be mentally stronger, and at the same time, he has to improve his physical ability. I believe he can make a national comeback,” Sarwar further told the reporters.

Rajshahi made a flying start to the Bangabandhu T20 Cup. They have won their first two games before losing the third one. In their fourth game, they’ll take on Gazi Group Chattogram on December 2 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.
