Left-handed opener Naim Sheikh has been in great form in the ongoing Bangladesh Cricket League (BCL). His team also won three consecutive matches with his third half-century in three matches on Thursday.
Naim's scintillating innings of 82 runs put BCB South Zone in the final of the BCL. Before the start of the tournament, the 23-year-old Naim had prepared to win the match single-handedly. This time he did it in the field game.
Batting first, BCB East Zone scored 170 runs before being all out in 50 overs. In reply, Naim’s South Zone did not get off to a good start. However, Naim's 93-ball innings of 82 runs with 10 fours and 2 sixes gave his team an easy win.
Faced with the media after the match, Naim said, “I have been trying for a long time to get regular runs. The extra time I got before the NCL (National Cricket League), and the break I had during the T20 World Cup, I worked on myself extra. I tried to play an innings that is a game-changing innings and makes an impact in the match. I tried to score regular runs in all matches."
The opener, who is out of the national team, is trying to single-handedly win the match. He added, “I am trying from NCL so that I can win matches alone. I will try to make such an impact that I can win a match. I will do it myself whether anyone can do it or not. It's not just the red ball but the white ball too... I genuinely play the white ball in ODIs, T20s. I thought that no matter whether anyone can or can’t or how the wicket plays, I will try to give 100% from my place."
He also claimed that he was never off-form. This opener has also highlighted the logic behind such a claim. The opener further said, “I never felt that I was out of form. A batter does not always score runs. When he mentally thinks he is out of form, he is. I never felt like I was out of form."
“A player can never be in the same flow for a long time. There are ups and downs. I did not have a good time, but I was not in the off-form. I could not score runs in three-four matches. There may be ten matches. But that didn't mean I was out of form."
