National discard Nasir Hossain emerged as the talk of the cricket fraternity Saturday for his improved fitness level.

The first-class cricketers from Rangpur, Rajshahi and Dhaka Metro Saturday appeared for fitness test at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium for the upcoming National Cricket League.

Right-handed batsman Nasir perhaps had all eyes on him, given his series of failure in the fitness test. 

Ahead of the 2019 season, Nasir had appeared for fitness test twice and failed on both the occasions. 

Ahead of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup in 2020, Nasir had failed again and was not made part of the tournament.

However, Saturday the middle-order batsman stunned the majority, scoring above 17 points in yo yo test, and keep track his ambition of returning to the national dressing room.

Member of the national selection panel Abdur Razzak while speaking on the overall fitness result of the cricketers said he is happy the shape the cricketers are in.

“Everyone looks fit enough. This is because all the teams had fitness camp. Almost every cricketer has performed beyond their ability in the test. Before there used to be cases of cricketers failing in the test but there has not been a case [Saturday]. I think there will be no such cases this time,” said Razzak to the media.

Due to the forthcoming T20 World Cup, Bangladesh had focused on the shortest format of cricket recently.

That however, is now about to change with the stage set for the start of a fresh season of the NCL.

The first-class competition was initially postponed and later cancelled earlier this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, after having already announced 20-member squads for participating teams, the country's first-class cricket competition is now tentatively slated to begin from mid-October.
