One of Bangladesh’s most famous cricketers, Tamim Iqbal, is having difficulty in trusting his own cricket board. The cricketer is feeling disregarded as he guarantees he was not allowed an ‘opportunity’ to put across his future plans, all things considered.

Iqbal last played a T20 for Bangladesh in March 2020 and from that point forward has turned into a bench warmer. His case is an exemplary illustration of what happens when communication lines separate between players and the cricket authorities. Presently he wants to connect with BCB (Bangladesh Cricket Board).

Not Given Any Chance To Tell Anything: Tamim Iqbal

“Nobody gives me a chance to explain my plan regarding my T20s. Either you [media] say it or someone else tells it [regarding my T20’s future] and let it move like this because I am not given any chance [by the board] to tell anything,” Tamim told reporters during a private function at Dhaka on Sunday.

“I play for so long that at least I deserve it, what I feel or think they should hear it from me,” he said. 

“But either you [media] give some kind of notion or someone (board) else tells something. And as they say something I don’t have anything to say,” he added. 

We Had A Meeting With Tamim Iqbal: Jalal Younus

In the meantime, BCB Chairman Jalal Younus had guaranteed that they had addressed Tamim on this issue. 

“Tamim Iqbal is one of the senior players on our side and he understands his position better than anyone else. You all know we had a meeting with him regarding this. He had told you [media] exclusively about his plan and now what we have to say,” Jalal told reporters in May at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. 

“After completing the six months, he will officially tell you about his decision and you will know through him about his plan and I can’t say anything about it.”
