Nasir participated in the last three round games in the league. He managed only 30 runs in his first match against Chittagong Division in Sylhet. He required only the first innings to bat because his team won by ten wickets. The allrounder picked up a wicket as well in that match.
Nasir headlined himself in his second match. He slammed maiden first-class double century in the fifth round match against Sylhet Division in Sylhet, 201 off 343 balls. This was the first double ton of the season. He took a wicket in the first innings before playing this magnificent knock.
In the last round, the 25-year old scored a half-century in the first innings, 68 runs when his team was in bother. In the second innings, he remained unbeaten for 29 runs as the match against Rajshahi Division in Bogra resulted in draw. Like those previous two matches, he picked a wicket in this match as well.
In three matches, Nasir Hossain has scored 328 runs in four innings at a high average of 109.33. With his off-spin, he has taken three wickets.
