Nasir came to the crease during a dismal moment for Rangpur as they lost their top 4 batsmen in just 29 runs. Nasir, since played sensibly and produced a rigid resistance along with Dhiman Ghosh and Ariful Haque consecutively. Their minor contributions in the partnership indicate the valor of Nasir as well.
