The Bangladesh opener became a household name in India in 2018 when he scored a stunning century against India in the Asia Cup final. Last year too, he played a sensational knock against Team India during the T20 World Cup and nearly powered Bangladesh to a famous win. Litton Das had smashed 60 runs off just 27 balls although his team eventually lost the game by 5 runs.
He will be in India soon for this year’s ICC World Cup. He is also one of the strong contenders to lead Bangladesh in the tournament. With Tamim Iqbal stepping down as the ODI captain, Bangladesh are set to name a new captain soon.
Litton Das’s Dream ODI XI:
Coming to Litton Das’ Dream ODI XI, the Bangladesh star has picked 3 players from Sri Lanka and 2 players each from India, Australia, Bangladesh, and Pakistan in his star-studded team.
For the opening slots, he picked India’s Virender Sehwag and Sri Lanka’s Sanath Jayasuriya. Both Sehwag and Jayasuriya are considered two of the most attacking batsmen of all time. Sehwag scored over 8000 runs while Jayasuriya scored more than 13000 runs in the 50-over format.
