Bangladesh discard Nasir Hossain succumbed to another low by failing a fitness test Tuesday on the second day of the fitness tests being carried out by Bangladesh Cricket Board on the cricketers outside the national side, High Performance Unit and U-19 team.
The 28-year old Nasir failed the fitness test last season before the National Cricket League and only obtained 8.5 in the beep test, well short of the minimum 11.
Nasir was among the 33 cricketers who underwent the beep test on the second day, and disappointed along with another out-of-favor national player Sohag Gazi.
Experienced cricketers like Abdur Razzak, Enamul Haque Jr, Shahriar Nafees and Mohammad Ashraful all passed the fitness test ahead of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup, scheduled for later this month.

BCB is also mulling allowing spectators at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium during the T20 competition as they are currently in talks with government authorities.
Meanwhile, all-rounder Shakib al Hasan will begin his road to competitive cricket return by appearing in the fitness test Wednesday.
Following the expiration of his one-year ICC ban on October 29, Shakib returned to the home of cricket in Mirpur Monday on the first day of the fitness eight where eight cricketers failed the beep test out of a total of 73.
