I believe Bangladesh will win the ODI series: Shahriar Nafees
Former Bangladesh opener Shahriar Nafees, on Thursday, distinctively marked Bangladesh as the favorites in the forthcoming one day international series against Sri Lanka. The Tigers came back strongly winning the second Test match to square the series after they had been defeated quite bitingly in the first match of the tour.

Shahriar Nafees said, “An international series is never be easy. Sri Lanka would definitely want to grab the ODI series after Bangladesh resisted in the Test. The hosts will try their hard but I believe Bangladesh would come out with positive results in ODI and T20I series.”
“I think the series will be hardly competitive as it was seen in the preparation match. The way Bangladesh is playing now and implementing the strategies, I am strongly hopeful that Bangladesh will win the ODI series” – Nafees wished.

About his regaining a place in the national team, Shahriar Nafees said he is absolutely practical in this regard; “Team Bangladesh is playing superbly now a days. It is hard to make a placement in such a team. I believe that if I keep performing like this, someday I will regain a place in the team if there would be any vacant spot. So I want to maintain my performance in the domestic arena. It is true if I could not perform like this I am not among the talks of people” – he said.
In the recently completed Bangladesh Cricket League (BCL), Shahriar Nafees scored 491 runs in 8 innings of 6 matches.
