Bangladeshi right-arm pacer Al Amin Hossain on Wednesday said that he is keen to utilize his chance in the ensuing ODI series against Zimbabwe.
The 30-year-old pacer made a comeback after a gap of five years. He played his last ODI back in 2015, also against Zimbabwe.
This time he is set to play against the same opponent in the three-match ODI series starting from March 1 in Sylhet International Cricket Stadium.
“I have returned to the Test and T20 teams recently and done well. Now, I got a comeback call to the ODI team as well. It’s a big opportunity for me. I will try best to utilize this chance by playing a good cricket. If I get chance of playing XI; I will try to give my best,” Al Amin told the reporters at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.
Bangladesh head coach Russell Domingo recently told that Al Amin is a good choice to play in white-ball cricket. But the pacer said he is upbeat to play all forms of cricket.
“I don’t think I am only for white-ball cricket. A player should be ready to play any format of cricket at any time. And we know the chance comes suddenly in Bangladesh. My plan is to play all forms of cricket,” Al Amin said.
Al Amin was inducted to all three forms of international cricket back in 2013 and 2014. But he failed to establish himself as a core member of the team. Al Amin believes it was not in his hand.
“I was out of the national set-up for a long time. So, I didn’t get enough chance to prove myself as a core member of the Bangladesh national team. I will try my best to change the scenario now, I will try to cement my place in the team,” Al Amin pointed out.
