Nasir Hossain once used to be a regular face in the Bangladesh national squad. Even he was adorably called as ‘Mr. Finisher’ by the general spectators. But for last couple of years, he is no more a regular member of Bangladesh squad. [নিউজটি বাংলায় পড়ুনঃ টেস্ট নিয়ে ভাবছেন না নাসির]
Nasir’s position has been like on and off of late. There are many controversy theories as to why Nasir is not in the squad. But Nasir, not giving an ear to any of them, just focuses on the process of his comeback to the team.
The national cricketers are currently having a fitness camp in Mirpur ahead of the impending series against Australia and South Africa. After finishing Sunday’s (July 16) session of fitness camp, Nasir talked to the newsmen where he revealed his aspirations to be back in the national side.
He said, “I am working really hard. Getting into the team or not – that’s not in my hands. But I am doing my work with full heart. I am very confident that if things continue to go like now, I will be on my way back to the national team for sure.”
The all-rounder also added, “My main focus is now on fitness. When batting-bowling sessions will start, I will shift my concentration on them. But to perform well, good performance helps till 60 percent. So I am trying to be in good shape fitness-wise.”
However, Nasir is not much confident about coming back directly in the two-match Test series against Australia as he said: “At the moment I am not thinking about Test cricket. If I get a go in the ODI team, I will make the best attempt to deliver what the team wants from me.”
