'Test cricket is the ultimate goal for me': Anamul Haque2013-03-06

TEAM UPDATE: Bangladesh batsman Anamul Haque talks about his first full tour overseas with the National Team-
Experience of Sri Lanka
"I was here for a Under 19 tour and made a couple of fifties. From what little I have played here I can tell you that the pitches are generally sporting. The practice wickets are also very good. Although it is a bit hot and humid but I am enjoying my time here.
I have played ODIs and T20s for Bangladesh but Test cricket has always been my main ambition. If I get the chance then it will be the proudest moment of my cricket career.
I thought the practice match against Sri Lanka Emerging Squad was very good preparation. I think I missed out. It was an excellent track to bat on. I tried to make up for that with a long session in the nets during optional practice today. I have worked on a few things and I am feeling confident.
Muminul (Haque), Raju (Abul Hasan) were Under 19 team mates and we have also played for the Academy together along with Shohag Gazi. The seniors, the coaches and team management have been very cooperative and welcoming. It has helped me to relax.
