The 2019 World Cup in England and Wales maybe looming on the horizon but Mohammad Mithun said he is not looking that far ahead, and just concentrating on the Zimbabwe ODIs

A confident Mohammad Mithun said he is looking to make a permanent spot for himself in the Bangladesh side.

The wicketkeeper-batsman has played nine T20Is and 13 ODIs for the Tigers but is yet to be a regular member of the side.

The 27-year old played six matches in the recently concluded Asia Cup in the UAE, scoring two fifties.

“I am the same as before, maybe my confidence has increased. Previously, I used to think I would be out of the side after under-performing, that is not working within me now. I have attained success in international cricket. I am confident now that I can do well,” Mithun told the media Sunday.

“This is my profession. I don’t feel well if I don’t come to the field after waking up. I am satisfied if I get to do something on the field. The place from where I accumulate money, and which gets my family going, I have to spend time on that. I don’t do anything else. Motivation comes from there. I am not leaving the game. Since I am playing, I want to do something good. The effort was always there,” he added.

Mithun has been in and out of the side in the recent past and when he got called up to the squad for the home ODI series against Zimbabwe, this was the first instance of him retaining his place in the national team.

“This is the truth. For instance, I played well in the very first game (of the Asia Cup against Sri Lanka). This never happened before. Anyways, I don’t want to look to the past. I have to look forward,” he said.

The 2019 World Cup in England and Wales maybe looming on the horizon but Mithun said he is not looking that far ahead, and just concentrating on the Zimbabwe ODIs.

“Actually I am taking each game as it comes. A series (Asia Cup) has ended, right now I am thinking about the Zimbabwe series. There is still a lot of time left for the World Cup. I have to stay fit, and perform. If I do well match by match and series by series, I will get the chance to play in the World Cup. Everyone dreams of playing the World Cup. I have the same dream. But I have to cross many stages before that,” he said.
