News- Bangladesh’s all-rounder Nasir Hossain said he’s not losing sleep thinking about a permanent place in the national side. Nasir, who last played a Test match in 2015, was recalled in the 14-member squad of the opening Test against Australia after some strong domestic performances.
“I try to remain positive about everything,” Nasir told reporters at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Sunday (August 20). “To be honest I am not thinking about the national team. Whenever and wherever I play I think it is my last game and so wanted to give my best. I just try to enjoy and perform.”
Nasir was also quick to point out that he does not see the likes of Mehedi Hasan and Mossadek Hossain as his competition. “I don’t think I have any competition with others,” he said. “I just try to compete with my own self and try to get better.”
Nasir said that he is well aware of his role in the team and would apply the same mindset that he had when he was touted as the finisher in the national dressing room. “I know that I have to bat at six or seven in the national team,” he revealed. “When I am batting along with batsman I try to make the innings bigger but when the tailenders arrive I try to score some quick runs on the score board. Apart from that there is nothing more into it.”
