Bangladesh dashing opener Liton Das believes that playing on sporting pitches will benefit both the batsmen and the bowlers of the side.
Liton's comments came after his impressive contribution with the bat in Bangladesh's T20I series win against Ireland with one match to spare. 

"First of all, a good wicket doesn't mean you will score fifty every game. It's not like that. You have to score runs consistently on tough wickets and you may even have to work hard on good pitches," said Liton.
"Obviously, it will be good for both the batters and bowlers if we play on good pitches. We have seen that the bowlers are also getting help while batters are getting opportunities to play big knocks. Playing on sporting pitches will definitely help us," he said.

Liton was in sight of his maiden T20I century before being dismissed on 83 runs with the help of three sixes and ten fours.

"I think I was hurrying a lot and the spinners also bowled well in the middle and the pitch favored them. If I had taken some time, I think I could have converted the 83 into a hundred," he added.
