Tamim doesn't like the idea of putting 'underdog' tag

Bangladesh Cricket Team have been preparing themselves well ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. They are high on confidence after doing well in the recently included tri-series in Ireland.

As the second-most important ICC flagship event is all set to begin on the day after tomorrow, Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal has recently talked about the upcoming tournament with a reporter of “The Daily Star” where he said he did not consider themselves as ‘underdog’.

“I don’t like to put a tag or something like that. We have been preparing ourselves well for the tournament. We are trying to execute our plans,” Tamim said.

Team Bangladesh led by Mashrafe Bin Mortaza is currently one of the most experienced sides in the world cricket. In the meantime they have also got some young talented cricketers in their Champions Trophy squad such as Mosaddek Hossain and Mehedi Hasan Miraz.

Considering everything, the dashing Tiger opener believes they will be one the toughest sides in the tournament to be beaten, no matter which opponent they play against.

“We have got five to six players who are very experienced. We have now got a very talented young batch who have got the experience of 30-40 one-day games. And if we can execute our plans we will be very tough to beat by even the best in the world,” he concluded.
