Bangladesh spinner Nasum Ahmed believes winning games is giving the team a lot of confidence ahead of the T20 World Cup as the left-arm spinner led the Tigers' superb bowling display with four wickets to seal the fourth match, and the series 3-1 against New Zealand in Mirpur Wednesday.

Questions were raised over the type of pitches used during the New Zealand and Australia series as teams struggled to reach even the 120-run mark.

It remains to be seen if these kind of slow pitches will give Bangladesh confidence considering their preparation for the T20 World Cup, but the left-arm spinner believes winning is all that matters and it will help the team eventually.

“About preparation for the T20 World Cup, I think the most important matter is we are winning games regularly.  Because winning a match gives you confidence. As we are winning games in recent times, I believe it will give us good confidence in the upcoming T20 World Cup,” Nasum said after the match at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.  

Nasum took the wicket of Rachin Ravindra, Finn Allen, Henry Nicholls and Colin de Grandhomme in the fourth match and bowled two maidens in his quota of four overs.

“I enjoyed Allen’s wicket most. I have taken Grandhomme’s wicket thrice in the series. But Allen’s wicket gave me the most joy. He tried to play a reverse sweep and I bowled a bit quicker and he mistimed. Even I targeted his wicket in the last match. He is my debut wicket,” he said.

Nasum has become a crucial part in the Tigers' bowling line-up ahead of the T20 World Cup and the left-arm spinner gave credit to the senior members of the team and spin coach Rangana Herath for helping him to be a better bowler these days.   

“I have received a lot of support from the team. Captain and experienced players are giving me a lot of advice and support. I have shared a lot of things with the coach as well. He advised me to bowl a bit slow on this kind of wicket. I applied that in the match and it worked,” Nasum concluded.   

The fifth and final match of the series will be played at the same venue Friday.
