Bangladesh’s youthful batting prospect Nazmul Hossain Shanto says he feels at home when at the crease in times of crisis.

Bangladesh colts trounced Scotland by 114 runs to enter the Super League quarter-finals of the Under-19 World Cup on Sunday, thanks to a brilliant century by Shanto, reports bdnews24.com.

He also became the top-scorer in youth ODIs, remaining unbeaten on 113 to hoist his team to 256/6 after Bangladesh had been reduced to 17/2 at the Sheikh Kamal International Cricket Stadium here.

“The truth is I enjoy batting in such situations which don’t always come. It’s not that I want the team to be under pressure but when such situations arise, I enjoy batting. I try to guide the team out of difficulties,” the youngster said.

Sunday’s match-winning knock followed a superb 73 that earned him the best player award in the opener against South Africa too.

“This is very good for me. I have batted under such situations before but never managed to finish the job. Now I’m slowly being able to do so. It will be useful for me in future.”
