Nasir magic continues

Once again the national discarded cricketer, who is not in Bangladesh squad for the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 in England and Wales, produced a match winning performance for his DPL team Gazi Group Cricketers.

Thanks to Nasir’s yet another all-round performance both with the bat and the ball, Gazi Group Cricketers handed the tournament favorites and defending champions Abahani Limited a 6-wicket defeat at the No.3 ground in BKSP.

Batting first, Abahani were dismissed for a paltry total of 156 runs off 41.3 overs, with Nasir getting three wickets to his name. Mehedi Hasan also took as many wickets while previous match’s hero with the ball Abu Haider Rony picked up a brace in this match.

In reply, Gazi Group Cricketer quite comfortably romped to victory, scaling down the way-too-wasy target in 36.4 overs. Nasir remained not out on 56 off 92 balls with the help of 4 fours and a six. Opener Anamul Haque Bijoy made 41, while Nadif Chowdhury was unbeaten on 26 runs.

No wonder, Nasir once again won the Man of the Match award. This is his third Man of the Match award in a row since coming back from Ireland, where he took part in the tri-nation series and played just one match against New Zealand.

With this latest unbeaten 56-run knock, Nasir extended his glorious batting average to 477.
