    You have the option of ignoring them, right?

    On topic, definitely a very impressive young talent. Lpoks to be a very good playrr of spin. Has a dolid defence, very good technique and a calm temparament. Very good early signs.

    As I write this, he's out

    Litton Das is DAMN GOOD against spin.

    Knows when to charge and when to defend.

    Serious talent atleast for Bangladesh pitches.

    There is a reason for him having average of 54 in domestic cricket with 9 hundreds at FC level while he is only 20
    And averaging 41 plus in list A as well
    I think no player of Bangladesh in past had such a domestic record when he debuted

    I think Anamul had good stats as well. Plus had scored a lot of runs in U-19 level but had a poor technique but with the special talent he is and with constant improvement he can be better.

    As for Liton he looks like a complete batsman, atleast against Spin. Special talent. Not often do you see a youngster debut and think - "he looks like a complete batsman". The only batsman who was labelled like that was Ashraful though and he had talent but poor work ethic and mentally fragile.

    Those List A stats don't mention the SR excellent as well as they don't tell you how tough runs have been on the matches he played.

    damnn saw Litton batting and there is some serious talent about the kid. BD have some really good young batsmen coming thru especially in ODIs. I'm happy that BD are very competitive in ODIs. But they have a lot of work to do in tests but hopefully over time they will improve. Besides people rip into BD's performance in test cricket but the truth is they only play on average abt 3 tests a year so how they gonna improve with such little cricket being played? This year is probably the first time in a very long time where they are going to play 4 series in one year.

    What I saw was a batsman who didn't seemed overpowered by the occasion. His body language never betrayed the nervousness of a 20 year old making his debut. Look solid both against the pace of Umesh Yadav and the spin of Ashwin. But its too early to say what will happen in future. But surely it would be better for Bangladesh if he takes over as full time wicketkeeper for them replacing Mushfiqur. Mushfiqur should be relieved of both captaincy and wicket keeping and asked to concentrate on his batting.

    Joe root was comfortably better than Liton in his debut match. He was 21 then. Liton look decent but people are hyping him as if he is the next devillers or Amla/kohli.

    I think that is more common with Pakistani cricketers. They get hailed as the next big thing even before debut. "Babar Azam future ATG" and similar threads are common on this website if I correctly remember.

    Easy buddy, just cause its a Pakistani cricket forum it doesnt mean others cant see whats you intention is or others cant see what your doing.
    Is there anything else you do other than bash BD given any chance? are we still hurt from the 3 nil thumping? to say they are bad in both is utter sad mate. BD has improved in ODI's check the stats, stats dont lie!

    And plz try keeping your blind hate to yourself.

    Litton Das is the next Sachin Tendulkar. Mark my words. He is young and will supersede Sachin as he plays according to the situation rather than for records. You heard it here first. NEXT BIG THING. BD WILL BE TOP 3 RANKED TEST AND ODI TEAM BY THE END OF THE YEAR!

    I disagree totally with your comparisons . Anamul haq never had 13 centuries in domestic cricket at age of 20 . Neither did he have average of 53 in FC cricket at age of 20 . Although he is a good player and with minor adjustments technical aswell as well he can comeback and succeed in international level .
    Similarly ashraful was only 16 when he came in bd international team he too did not have such stats .
    Nobody can answered me about one important point that he litton mostly opens or bats in top 4 positions mostly top 3 . Then why was he sent at number 7 to bat ? It's unbelievable on part of BD management . It is not the way to treat a youngster or anybody fir that matter .

    I seriously believe that at this age with such numbers , if he remains healthy , disciplined , down to earth hardworker then there is no reason why he can't be mainstay of there batting in test and Odi cricket in years ahead . But he has to put in hard yards further . His Attitude would hold the key .

    I told you guys that Liton is the real deal. Probably the best young batsman in the world right now. With his talent, attitude and good looks he can be Bangladesh's Virat Kohli. I can see corporations lining up to sign him up. He is the total package.

    Litton looks like a very promising talent. Played the spinners pretty well and has got a pretty good technique.

    Influx of such talents will surely make BD a force to reckon with even in test arena (at home for the starters) sooner rather than later.

    Best young batsman in the workd without even hitting an international 50? Why not wait for him to do well for at least 6-8 months before reaching such conclusions.

    He's a very good talent right now and gave glimpses of that on his debut knock but tougher tests await.

    I have stopped rating bangladeshi batsman after what happened to Asraful. When he scored hundred against the likes of Mcgrath and gillespie, i thought he was gem of a cricketer. Unfortunately he wasn't.

    Talking about litton, he certainly has guts, but i will wait for 4-5 more matches to termed him as 'super-star'

    this

    Even Bhogle said, instead of complaining about the situation you are in, you have to play well and you need to cherish the situation. That is what was so special about the likes of Mushfiq. On the other hand didn't like Riad because he wanted to bat only in his desired position and played only in a particular gear.

    Similarly ashraful was only 16 when he came in bd international team he too did not have such stats .
    Nobody can answered me about one important point that he litton mostly opens or bats in top 4 positions mostly top 3 . Then why was he sent at number 7 to bat ? It's unbelievable on part of BD management . It is not the way to treat a youngster or anybody fir that matter .
    Ya I agree. Credit goes to Liton for making a good looking 45 in his debut innings in an unusual position

    It's about time he retires. He doesn't have it in him. Some are born with natural talent like Sarkar and some are domestic bully like Shuvagoto and Liton.

    There is a difference in class, and this kid already got bowled twice, once to a hack Patel. 5 matches and bowled twice, makes him look like a tailender, Sarkar's stumps are untouched.

    There have been some great players in the history of the game who have failed in there first few matches and then they became world beaters later. He has shown enough quality in his first test as a batsman . He should be persisted with . Also for a new comer he had to deal with lots of batting order shufflings . He was sent at different positions to bat .
    His batting style , shots , skill set have no comparison with Ashraful . He getting bowled is just nerves and fear of getting dropped . Management should give him confidence that you will play the next 5 games and will bat at this fixed position , go play confidently express yourself . Bangladesh , India , Pakistan should treat Litton Das , Sanju Samson , Babar Azam like the way Australia , New Zealand and South Africa treated Steve Smith , Kane Williamson , Hashim Amla & Ab Develliers . Do not shake & dent their confidence by dropping them at a young age . Persist with them , give them confidence . They will come good .

    Just 2-3 failures for a youngster & people want him to retire

    I can agree about dropping him for 1-2 series and selecting him after few months when he gets more mature, but to label him "domestic bully" is too much

    Looking at Litton Das bat, I don't see any technical deficiencies in his batting and he plays some good looking shots. He needs to improve his temperament and not try to become a hero by going for too many shots

    LoL this is the reason why we will never produce a world class batsman. We have someone with potential to be a world class batsman and after a few string of failures he is to be discarded? He looks solid. Soumya is good but will struggle against the best of the business whereas Litton has the potential to be the perfect no. 3 for us should he be able to finally make a move on.

    What if I told you Soumya himself has struggled a lot to get runs under his belt. His first 50 came after 6 matches but from there on he blossomed

    Litton is not ordinary. If my cricket-knowledge about batting dont betray me, I see solid technique in LKD's batting. Surely he's a on-side dominated player, but I think a player with his technique and timing, he must have a decent off-side batting skill. I mean how often do you see a batsman with very good basics without either of offside or on-side deficiency? IMHO he's just nervous for being exposed to the highest level of cricket and once his nerve settles he'll open up more. I myself also thought of him as an FTB like Shubhagoto Hom, but after watching the last innings he played against the saffers, I'm convinced of his quality. Yea he played a short-lived innings with a very amature-ish and ugly dismissal, but in this short time, notice the six he hooked using the 140+ pace of the bowler, he just timed it and used the pace of the bowler to take the ball over-boundary...the flying flick of the wrist 4 which almost reached the rope...I mean a player with such delicate touch must be a raw talent. Not to mention his copy-book defense. His quality was obvious from his short innings...just needs to settle down and slowly open his Pandora's box. I hope he fulfills his potential talent and become a world-class batsman unlike Ashraful, Alok Kapali, Al-Shahriar Rokon, Aftab Ahmed etc. All of them I mentioned had the talent bat wasted to oblivion. I just hope LKD turns out the other way.

    4-5 matches are too less numbers to judge a player super star. Need to play consistently well for at least 2 years.

    Is Liton Das a better Prospect than what Virat Kohli was?

    This is a question that has been on my mind since the Bangladesh series vs India, Pakistan and SA. Liton Das seems to have better technique and a superior thinking cricket head than virat. Plus he doesnt give into "rush-of-blood" strokes. Seems to handle pressure better compared to when Virat had started out. Thoughts?
