In response, Nasir remained unbeaten on 61 off 64 balls with the help of 9 boundaries while opener Anamul Haque Bijoy made a solid 45 as Gazi Group sailed to victory with five wickets to spare. Nadif Chowdhury was not out alongside Nasir on 18 runs.
‘The Finisher’ Nasir was awarded Man of the Match for his superb all-round performance, He had also won the award in the previous match of his team for smashing a scintillating century against Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club. In that match, Nasir had scored 134 runs before retiring hurt off just 113 balls. His innings had featured 7 fours and 6 sixes, and his team had won the match by a huge margin of 177 runs.
