Mashrafe asked Tamim to leave T20

Tamim Iqbal is one of the most successful batsmen in Bangladesh. The left-handed opener is also one of the self-interested figures of Bangladesh’s success in all formats over the last 8-10 years.

He announced his decision not to play in the T20 World Cup on September 1 on his verified Facebook Live. Then a storm arose in the country’s cricket ground.

At the time, Tamim said, there was a small announcement. I had earlier called Board President Papon Bhai and Chief Selector Nannu Bhai. I have shared some things over the phone. Which I also want to share with you. I told them, I don’t think I should be in the World Cup squad. Frankly, I’m not in the World Cup squad.

Tamim also explained the reasons behind his decision. “It’s a big reason to stay out of the World Cup, I haven’t played in this format for days,” he said. Second, injury. Although I don’t think injury is such a big problem. Because I hope I’ll be fine before the World Cup. The world’s best cricketer has not been in T20 cricket for the last one and a half years.

“The key thing for me to make this difficult decision is that since I haven’t played in the last 15-16 Twenty20s and those who have been playing in my place, I don’t think it will be fair to them, if I suddenly come and take their place,” he said. No.

Meanwhile, former successful captain Mashrafe bin Mortaza asked the Tigers to leave the opener. Mash made the remarks on Friday (October 29) on The Tamim Iqbal Show. He said, ‘I was the only one who told Tamim, the way he played, to get out of the T20 for a while. Because for Bangladesh, Tamim has to be the best in ODIs and Tests. It is known that Mashrafe gave this advice to Tamim in the 2019 World Cup.

In a recent interview with Time News, BCB president Nazmul Hasan Papon claimed that ODI captain Tamim Iqbal wanted to retire from T20 cricket. However, he did not allow it to happen.

The BCB president said, “Tamim has talked to me about every decision.” He told me before he left for New Zealand that he wanted to retire from T20 cricket. I don’t want to play in this format anymore. Papun added, “I told him at that time, don’t do these things now, come back first and then we’ll see.”
