Liton Kumar Das got the opportunity to play in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for the first time. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) bought this tiger opener from the auction for 50 lakh rupees for this season. So, as the start date of IPL draws closer, Liton is getting more and more excited. This wicket-keeper batsman seems to be unable to learn from the IPL
Litton shared his feelings about IPL in an interview recently during the BPL game. A few days before that he also sent messages for KKR. Now Litton said, “IPL is a very big platform. It is very much appreciated all over the world. There are always very exciting matches here. All the big stars of the world play in every team. It is great to be able to share the dressing room with them.”
This time, Andre Russell, David Vise, Rahmanullah Gurbaz are the strong batsmen as a partner of KKR Liton. Who is a real terror for bowlers in T20 cricket. As Lytton is also a batsman, he feels he has a lot to learn from them. The bat of the Bangladeshi star is also smiling now. He is looking forward to seizing the great opportunity at this time.
According to Lytton, playing in the IPL can improve your game as well as improve your mental health. This wicket keeper said, “Practicing, playing or being in the dressing room with great cricketers means getting a close idea of their thinking. If you can discuss with them, you can improve your game. You can also get stronger mentally. You can learn a lot.”
Meanwhile, it seems that Liton will have to match a very difficult equation to get a chance in the first eleven of KKR. In that case, Gurbaz of Afghanistan can challenge him. Both are wicketkeepers and both are openers. However, judging by the batting style or recent form, none are any less than others. But who gets the chance in the end remains to be seen.
