Bangladesh opening batsman Tamim Iqbal has said that team comes before personal milestones. He doesn’t not regret scoring a duck if his team wins a match. [নিউজটি বাংলায় পড়ুনঃ “দল জেতার চেয়ে বড় কিছু নাই”]
Tamim failed to open his account in Bangladesh’s five-wicket victory against New Zealand in Cardiff following a century against England and 95 against England. According to him, team’s win is the biggest thing.
“I get overjoyed by our personal achievements because I do it for the team’s cause. At the end of the day, it all matters what your team does. It doesn’t matter what I, as Tamim, do, or what anyone else does. Victory of the team is the biggest thing,” the left-hander said.
Tamim could’ve got his second consecutive Champions Trophy hundred. After scoring 128 against England, he was eyeing his tenth ODI ton. But he had to go back to the pavilion scoring 95 runs against Australia at The Oval. This hurts him.
“If my team hadn’t won, I would’ve felt sad. But I don’t care scoring ducks when my team wins. Bad days do come in cricket. I feel sad for the Australia game. Would’ve been great if I had hit two centuries in Champions Trophy!”
Speaking of two Champions Trophy hundreds, Tamim does have a chance to do it if he scores a hundred against India. But he doesn’t want to say anything before the start of a match.
“Let’s see. In cricket, you cannot say anything early. I never stopped trying my best, and I won’t ever,” he added.
