T20 World Cup 2021: Tamim Iqbal which is the Opener and Power Hitting Batsman of Bangladesh cricket team will be not available for International Men’s Cricket World Cup 2021 edition. Remember that ICC Men’s T20 world cup will be held on UAE and Oman.
Tamim Iqbal conveyed his decision to Bangladesh cricket president Nazmul Hasan and chief breeder Minhajul Abedin before making an announcement on his Facebook page. Iqbal also stated that his long-standing knee injury was not the reason for his decision, as he would have fully regained his physical fitness before the start of the tournament. “I don’t think my knee injury is a cause for concern as I was going to recover before the World Cup.
Tamim Iqbal said, “Sometime back I had called the chairman of our board of directors and the chief breeder. That’s what I want to share with you. I told him that I don’t think I should be in the World Cup squad. There are many reasons for not participating in my tournament. The biggest reason is play time. I haven’t played in this format for a long time.”
“The main reason I made this decision is because I don’t think it will be true for players who have played in the last 15-16 T20Is that I haven’t played. the world championship, but I think it would be unfair to these players. ”
