One of Bangladesh’s most famous cricketers, Tamim Iqbal, struggles to trust his own cricket board. The cricketer feels ignored as he guarantees he hasn’t had a chance to present his future plans all things considered.

Iqbal last played a T20 for Bangladesh in March 2020 and from then on he turned into a bench warmer. His case is an exemplary illustration of what happens when the lines of communication split between players and cricketing authorities. Currently, he wants to connect with BCB (Bangladesh Cricket Board).

No chance to say anything: Tamim Iqbal

“No one gives me the chance to explain my plan regarding my T20s. Either you [media] say it or someone else says it [regarding my T20’s future] and let it move like that because I have no chance [by the board] say bullshit” Tamim told reporters at a private reception in Dhaka on Sunday.

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

“But either you [media] give some sort of notion or someone else (advice) says something. And since they say something, I have nothing 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 approached Tamim on this issue.

“Tamim Iqbal is one of the senior players on our side and he understands his position better than anyone. You all know we had a meeting with him about it. He told you [media] exclusively on 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 inform you of his decision and you will know from him his plan and I can’t say anything about it.”
