Nasum Ahmed, the left-arm spinner who spearheaded the Tigers' outstanding bowling display with four wickets to seal the fourth match and the series 3-1 against New Zealand in Mirpur on Wednesday, says winning games is giving the team a lot of confidence ahead of the T20 World Cup.
“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 bowled two maidens in his four overs and claimed the wickets of Rachin Ravindra, Finn Allen, Henry Nicholls, and Colin de Grandhomme in the fourth match.
“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.
“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.
