“It’s obviously a dream to officiate in the forthcoming ICC World Cup. It’s an honour and a privilege, and a huge achievement for me to become the first Bangladeshi to officiate in the World Cup. It’s been the result of a process, and I have earned it through dedication and hard work. However, I think getting appointed to officiate in a Test match was much bigger for me,” he told Cricbuzz

Sharfuddoula Saikat further said about his preparation for the World Cup as an umpire

“I think I am aware of the environment that prevails in an ICC event, considering I have some experience but at the same time the intensity will be much higher than what I have experienced so far and I am looking forward to that challenge. There will be different teams and so I have to prepare by studying about them.”. Sharfuddoula Saikat said

The Bangladesh team did a pretty much not-bad performance in the Asia Cup in Sri Lanka. They even won the first World Cup warm up match.
