“I’m grateful to Mashrafe bhai and to each single particular person who had supported me via thick and skinny. Their ethical help was extraordinarily useful.”
Sabbir devoted his century to his dad and mom for giving him energy throughout his off-field points.
“I dedicate my century to my father and mom as they had been beside me all via once I was passing via some torrid time on account of all of the issues that had occurred over the last couple of months,” he added.
