I tried to follow his instructions – Soumya Sarkar

Wasim Jaffer went to Bangladesh to play Dhaka Premier League (DPL) for Abahani Ltd a few days ago at the age of 41. He was the chief run scorer of the team despite there are many local superstars like Soumya Sarkar, Sabbir Rahman, Mossadek Hossain, Jahurul Islam etc.

The stint with Wasim Jaffer has helped Soumya Sarkar to attain newer heights in his career. He started working out on the technical areas suggested by Wasim Jaffer, which worked like a wonder to his name. Within no time, Sarkar has become a force to reckon with.

“I have seen his (Wasim) batting very closely. He is a very good and experienced player. He scored 40 thousand runs in his career. Since he scored such amount of runs, so he definitely has the quality,” said Soumya.

“I have understood how he thinks in the field and outside the field. And also, I also follow his way of batting. I talked with him about this, nothing more than that and just tried to follow his instructions,” he added.

Well, it is an interesting move from BCB to get the services of the stalwart Indian player. The veteran batsman has got quite a few techniques with him, which would help BCB to make things fall in place.
