Bangladesh batsman Yasir Ali Rabbi feels that his dream of making debut for Bangladesh national team is still very much alive as he focused on more hard work to make a cut in playing XI.
The right-handed batsman has been under the radar of the Bangladesh Cricket Board for last couple of years but yet to make his international debut.
"One of my brothers once said that I've been living a lot of people's dream by being near the national team and getting to practice with them on a regular basis. I realised it was true. If I think positively, I can move forward and the right time will come. But if I get into that negative zone with negative thoughts, I will not be able to continue the battle. I have to keep myself focused and work harder," Rabbi told reporter on Monday.
It is rumored that the upcoming Bangladesh' Test series against Pakistan series looms as Rabbi's best chance to make Test debut in absence of Mahmudullah who made a sudden decision to retire from Test cricket after the match against Zimbabwe in Harare.
Bangladesh and Pakistan will play three T20s at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium starting from November 19 before they will play two-match Test series in Chattogram and Dhaka respectively.
