I was prepared to play better whenever I get chance: Shuvagata

Gemcon Khulna all-rounder Shuvagata Hom Chowdhury has played a big role in the team’s important victory in the fourth match of the team in the ongoing Bangabandhu T20 Cup tournament.

Khulna started the tournament with a win. Then they lost the next two matches miserably. In the fourth match, the South Bengal team picked up a great victory. However, Khulna’s top order failed in all four matches. The 34-year all-rounder Shuvagata said the batsmen had been trying much in practice and in match to solve out this problem.

“After winning the first match, we didn’t win two matches consecutively. Winning the fourth match today was very important for us. We are not starting well in our innings. Our batsmen are trying in practice and in matches. Hopefully, we will do better from the next match. The pitch was good for batting but we lost wickets quickly,” the all-rounder said.

Shuvagata didn’t get chance in main XI in first three matches of Khulna. But he showed his potential after getting the chance in the team. He was able to play just 5 balls at the end. But his unbeaten 15-run cameo innings off just 5 balls gave Khulna a fighting score against Dhaka yesterday (November 30).

He was succeeded in his first over in bowling too. He bowled out Tanjid Hasan Tamim in a great delivery. He ensured Khulna’s victory by taking the wicket of Dhaka captain and the team’s top scorer Mushfiqur Rahim. Khulna won the match by 37 runs. Shuvagata took 3 wickets in 3.2 overs.

 “I could not play (previous matches) but I was prepared to play better whenever I get chance,” he concluded.
