Bangladesh star batsman Litton Das, who almost beat India single-handedly in yesterday’s T20 WC, is the hero of the moment. Even Indian cricket fans are in awe of the Bangladesh vice-captain’s heroics.

The right-handed opening batsman and Test wicket-keeper struck a brilliant 60 off just 27 balls to almost take his side home vs India in the T20 World Cup. He was going all guns blazing against Indian bowlers and hammered them all around to give his side an early advantage.

He hit fours in Arshdeep Singh’s first over and then six and two fours against Bhuvneshwar Kumar. It just took him 21 balls to reach his half century, and it appeared like he was on a mission to win the game single-handedly.

However, KL Rahul’s direct throw dashed his efforts and Bangladesh lost the match.

On the other hand, other Bangladesh batters could not live up to the hype. Nevertheless, Litton managed to grab the attention of all cricket lovers with his massive knocks.

India managed to secure a narrow five-run win after the game got affected by rain in the second half.

Meanwhile, Litton Das’ beautiful wife LD Sonchita took to her social media handle and was all praise for  her husband. The versatile batter’s wife shared a special message for her husband and wrote, “Believe in time! Proud of you my dear Husband. You deserve the best of everything and hope you will have it too. Hare Krishna!!”

Litton is married to his long-time girlfriend Devasri Biswas Sonchita. They couple married in September of 2019.

Litton, born in Dinajpur to a Bengali Hindu family, is now the highest ever run scorer for Bangladesh in any calendar year (2022). He also has the highest individual score for Bangladesh in ODIs and is the first batter to score 1000 runs in 2022 and also the first keeper to score 800 runs in 2012-2023 World Test Championship.
