Mominul on the verge of equaling de Villiers record

DHAKA: Bangladesh batsman Momimul Haque, who’s on the verge of equalling AB de Villiers record of most consecutive fifties in Test, has stated that he’s not occupied with any record.

"You remind me of it (the record) but then I forget about it. I don't feel pressure. I will not think about it after you all go from here. I will try not to remember it next time too," Mominul was quoted as saying by 'ESPNCricinfo'.

De Villiers notched up his fifties between 2012 and 2014. Mominul's run began in 2013 and he is one short of equalling de Villiers.

"I am nowhere near him (de Villiers). You know he is the king of all forms of cricket. I don't think of myself as his competitor. I am not thinking about who I will sit next to, or not. I will try to achieve a similar target that I have had in previous matches," Mominul said.

"I will prepare similarly so that I can fulfill the expectation of the public and my own target."

Mominul expects the wicket to be slow in the match against India, reports NDTV sports.

"I think the wicket will be on the slower side. I will see on Wednesday how the wicket behaves. I don't get wickets much. I try to play this way."
