Bangladesh's uncapped batsman Fazle Mahmud said that he is eyeing to replicate his recent form in the upcoming home series against Zimbabwe.

Fazle's form in the Ireland tour with Bangladesh A team also played a big part behind his getting the final nod. In three innings, he scored 136 runs at an average of 45.33 and also turned his arm over to pick four wickets at an economy of 5.30. Fazle believes that batting is his primary calling card although he is consciously trying to devote more time to his bowling.

“I am lot more confident now, especially after the Ireland tour. I was not sure whether I will be picked for the national team or not but I understood there were discussions about me and it made me feel that I am on the right track. For the moment my only aim is to cement the place in the national squad so that at the end of the day I can cherish the reward of my persistence,” Fazle told Asian Age on Friday.

Fazle Mahmud was the only surprise pick in Bangladesh’s ODI squad for the series against Zimbabwe, a selection that marks a noteworthy shift in the selectors' line of thinking. In a country where players are considered old to represent the country after touching the 30-year mark, Fazle's inclusion is nothing short of surprise.
