Nasir Hossain is one of the young allrounders in Bangladesh who, if handled correctly, could be a long-term prospect for the national team in all forms. As a lower-middle-order batsman, Nasir can bat in different gears depending on the match situation; as an offspinner he has control and accuracy; and his fielding is perhaps the most exciting part of his game. His potential was seen in his first international game, when he scored 63 against Zimbabwe, the highest by a Bangladeshi on ODI debut. That performance led to his Test debut against West Indies in October 2011, a month before his 20th birthday.
That he had a feel for sports was obvious pretty early in Nasir's life: he joined Bangladesh's only sports institute, BKSP, in 2004 as a 13-year-old. In a few years, Nasir quickly became an important member of the institute's league team and played a key role in its promotion to the Premier League. At the same time, he represented the Bangladesh Under-19 side in the 2008 World Cup when he was 16.
His move to Abahani, one of the biggest clubs in the country, was a move fraught with risk but Nasir held his nerve in tight games and soon became a regular for them. In one of his early games, his courage to open the bowling against Sanath Jayasuriya (who was playing for Mohammedan Sporting Club) was seen as a mark of his promise.
He had limited opportunities in the Rajshahi side, scoring a solitary first-class hundred. He joined his native Rangpur for the 2011-12 season after the expansion of the NCL.
After spending 15 years in the domestic circuit, Naman Ojha is expected to make his Test debut in the third match, for which, he says, he is not facing additional pressure because of the long wait
