The Bangladeshis are scheduled to take on the mighty Aussies in a bilateral series in the month of October this year. However, it is still not clear whether the series will take place or not because the pay dispute between the Australian cricketers and the board is still hanging in mid air. Despite the uncertainty, the Bangladeshi cricketers are preparing themselves for the contest. The players are going through gruelling net sessions at Mirpur.

The main story:

Bangladesh all-rounder Nasir Hossain seems to be oozing with confidence ahead of the series. The 25 years old believes that the Tigers have a great chance of beating the Australians. He cited the example of the successful home series against England last year. Though the series ended up in a tie, Bangladesh put up an excellent performance in the second Test to win it by 108 runs.

Hossain pointed out that irrespective of the pitch conditions, the men in green and red has the capability to beat the Australians under any circumstances. “Pitch is not a big factor. I think Bangladesh have the ability now to defeat Australia in any condition. I could see the very possibility of Bangladesh winning matches,” he said.

Hossain last featured for Bangladesh in a Test match in the year of 2015 when they took on South Africa in the capital city of Dhaka. Talking about his selection in the team and a possible comeback, Hossain hopes to return someday.

“I have my personal goal to get back my position in the team, I am doing every possible thing for that, getting practice and maintaining my fitness. Hope someday I will have my chance once again,” Nasir said.

However, he has been in the reckoning in the limited over formats. He played his last ODI this year in the tri-nation series against Ireland. The last T20 match he played was against India in the T20I World Cup last year.
