Tamim takes blame of poor batting
Lastnewsbd, 23rd January, Dhaka: Unfortunately, Tamim missed out on making the match a memorable one for himself and his fans. Rather the way he led the way towards a batting collapse will put a big scar on his career. And as a result of that, leaving aside the third day’s play, the entirety of which was wiped out by rain, Bangladesh quite effectively lost the match inside three days.
The second Test between Bangladesh and New Zealand in Christchurch meant something more than special for the dashing opener Tamim Iqbal. Because maybe just for one match, but still it was a great occasion for him to officially debut as Bangladesh Test captain. Post the match; Tamim was ready to take all the responsibilities on his shoulder, “I was the captain, so I should have led the side in a better way. Not just by the name, I could lead the team with my batting as well. But the way I got myself out in the second innings didn’t send any good news to the later batsmen to come.” Tamim also termed his inability to play big knocks a ‘crime’, for he said: “As far as my own batting is concerned, there wasn’t a single time that I was in any trouble. But unfortunately, I just couldn’t capitalize on them to play bigger knocks. “The team expects something special from me, I too have my own set of goals but I failed to meet them all. When you play so effortlessly but fail to leave a mark, it’s one kind of crime, and I have committed that crime.”
