Nayeem said,

“I am in a really good position. The wicket is good and the bowlers from the other side are bowling very well. When the run is coming slowly from both sides, the wickets are coming and when you’re in the crease, it seems easier to bat.”

He added, “My main target was to bowl long in the right place. In which I am succeeded. In fact, we need the spinners’ pace variation, we have tried to bowl a lot in one place, bowling without a run.”

Nayeem had bowled well in the Bangladesh Cricket League (BCL). His practice in match play had also been good. From there he had developed confidence. “There (BCL) I got 21 wickets, I bowled a lot there and I got confidence,” he said. “Confidence is greater when you are in a match than in practice.”
