Nasum became the third Bangladeshi player after Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan to be nominated for the award
Left-arm spinner Nasum Ahmed on Wednesday was nominated for the 'ICC men's Player of the Month' award for September owing to his contribution in the five-match T20 International series against New Zealand.
The men's nominees also feature Nepal leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane and the USA's power-hitter Jaskaran Malhotra.
Nasum became the third Bangladeshi player after Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan to be nominated for the award. Both Mushfiqur and Shakib eventually
emerged as victorious. The left-arm spinner also looks highly likely to achieve the feat.
Nasum indeed was Bangladesh's star performer in the home T20I series against New Zealand, leaving the visitors bamboozled with his accurate line and length.
He picked up eight wickets in the series with a sensational performance of 4-10 in the fourth match. His exploits helped the hosts to emerge victorious with a margin of 3-2 against the visitors.
Playing six ODIs, Nasum picked up a staggering 18 wickets at an average of 7.38. His performance against Papua New Guinea, where he ended up with
figures of 6/11, grabbed the attention of one and all.
