BCB’s head of cricket operations, Akram Khan, is hoping Tamim Iqbal will return to the national team for the ICC Twenty20 World Cup after his knee injury, and said his long absence from the format casts no doubt on his selection leaves.
Tamim has missed the last three T20 series of Bangladesh against New Zealand, Zimbabwe and Australia and will also miss the Tiger’s upcoming five-game series against New Zealand at home.
The left-hander played last T20 international match against Zimbabwe in Dhaka on March 9, 2020.
Although Bangladesh misses eleven T20s in a row, Tamim will probably play for the Tigers on October 17 in Muscat against Scotland on the opening day of the T20 World Cup for the Tigers, said Akram.
« Tamim is one of the best batsmen in the country. There is no doubt about it. When he’s fit, he’ll play. He will be with the World Cup team. His problem is injuries, « Akram told reporters on Saturday.
» The selectors are talking to doctors and physiotherapists about it. Everyone is keeping a close eye on it. Hopefully he will be fit, ”he added.
Bangladesh are very confident after beating the Aussies 4-1 earlier this month.
The hosts took advantage of their home advantage by playing slow and twisting pitches which helped them win their first series against Australia.
The Tigers will again use the home conditions during the New Zealand series from September 1st at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka, Akram suggests / p> “We do not instruct to prepare such wickets for us. Whatever the wicket, we have to play in it.
“Whichever country the game is played in, the home team takes advantage of the home conditions. The Bangladeshi players have played more on this type of wicket, so they will have an advantage, « said the former Bangladesh captain.
Akram is also happy with the way the national team has been preparing for series against Australia and New Zealand the T20 World Championship is approaching.
“We are preparing very well for the World Cup. We’re playing against teams like Australia and New Zealand before the World Cup. We also visited Zimbabwe. By the grace of the Almighty, the preparation is going very well. ”
Bangladesh begins its campaign in the first round of Group B along with Scotland, Oman and Papua New Guinea and must be group champion or runner-up to advance to the Super 12.
All of Bangladesh’s first round matches will take place in Muscat, Oman, and the team will travel there a few days before the tournament to acclimate to the conditions.
The Tigers did not play any warm-up games in Oman prior to the main tournament , and the chief of cricket operations at BCB said they will arrange this if the coach so wishes.
« We’ll go to Oman 6-7 days in advance, that’s clear … The plan is in place not fixed yet. We’ll do as the trainer wants. ”
