Sri Lanka is the motherland of Saif Hasan
Saif made his Test debut against Pakistan in the absence of Tamim Iqbal in February this year. Saif, who came to the national team to shine in the age-based team, did not have a good start in his white dress. However, in the upcoming Sri Lanka series, this opener has the potential to have chances in the team. And how Saif will do if given the opportunity is very important. Sri Lanka is the motherland of Saif Hasan. There are countless examples of being born in one country and playing cricket for another.
England’s World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan (Ireland), fast bowler Joffra Archer (Barbados) or all-rounder Ben Stokes (New Zealand) – they all come from other countries. There is a close example of this in the case of a Bangladeshi cricketer. He is Saif Hasan. The 21-year-old’s mother is Sri Lankan.
Saif’s father went to Saudi Arabia in 1995 to work. There he met a young woman from Sri Lanka. Then marriage and marriage. Saif Hasan came into the world in 1997 by lighting their house. Who is now one of the most promising young stars in Bangladesh cricket? Earlier, while playing for the Bangladesh U-19 team, Saif met some relatives from his mother’s side. The time was very sweet. However, the only regret during the whole tour was that he did not like Sri Lankan food.
In front of Saif, there is an opportunity to go to his mother’s country in a national team jersey and play Tests. That is why he is doing ongoing personal practice organized by BCB. The Tigers may tour Sri Lanka on September 24 or 25 to play a three-match Test series. The Test series is scheduled to start on October 24. Bangladesh will start international cricket after a long time with this series. Saif is now regularly joining the team to take the opportunity to go on that tour.
