Tamim will not play T20 even if he leads the team against New Zealand


Tamim Iqbal, an experienced batsman of the Bangladesh team, was in the squad for the ODI and T20 series announced for the tour of New Zealand.

But even if he leads the team in the ODI series against New Zealand starting on March 20, Tamim will not play in the T20 series. The left-arm batsman made the announcement at a zoom meeting on Thursday.

He said that he will not play in the three-match T20 series due to personal reasons. He wants to lead the team in the ODI series and bring good results even if he does not play in the T20. “Our past record in New Zealand is not good. But this time we want to do something better.

I want to return to the country with victory. Our practice here has been good. Hopefully, we will be able to show good performance in the match. It is difficult for the Asian teams to do well in the conditions of New Zealand. The Kiwis crushed the opponent with a pace attack.

However, the Bangladesh team also went to the island of Tasmania with a large pace fleet. The pace bowlers are in good rhythm. Tamimra wants to stop the Kiwis with pace bowling.

That's what Tigers head coach Russell Domingo says. In this regard, ODI captain Tamim said, the fast bowlers are in good rhythm. They have a lot of expectations of the team.

Tamim hopes that the pacers will give their best on this tour. The Bangladesh team is hoping for success with their hands.

Bangladesh have never won a bilateral series against New Zealand on home soil.
