Aim is to win both Tests - Sakib al Hasan

Sakib al Hasan believes that Bangladesh are capable of beating Australia by a big margin in the upcoming Test series. The hosts will take on Australia at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Sunday in the two-Test series opener while the series concludes with the last game in Chittagong from September 4.

Sakib, who will be playing his 50th Test for Bangladesh, acknowledged he’s excited and determined to make a mark. “I think it is possible to win both Test matches,” Sakib told reporters in Mirpur while pointing out his ambitions against the Aussies on Thursday (August 24). “There is no reason why we can’t do that.

“I don’t have much regret in my life. I am very much happy with what has happened with me. I would feel much better if I could play more matches,” he said. “Those matches I have played and had a good performance, all are important to me.

“I would say the Test match against England in 2016 is the most memorable one. As my individual performance, I can remember my 92 runs against West Indies. Scoring 217 against New Zealand was a big achievement for me.”

Sakib will be joined by Tamim Iqbal to play 50 Test matches for Bangaldesh. Shakib went on to warn the visitors about Bangladesh’s intentions and said the conditions won’t make it easy for the Australians. “They are one side who they have a culture to adapt in every condition in a quick span of time,” Shakib pointed out.
