Ahead of the upcoming Nidahas Trophy which is scheduled begin from tomorrow at R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium in Sri Lanka, left-handed Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal has labelled India as favourite to win the tournament.
“India are favourites, they are in great form. This format [T20Is] is so interesting that the game can change at many moment,” said Tamim when he was asked regarding who are the favourites to win the tri-nation T20 tournament.
Bangladesh team have been going through tough time in recent times as they were thrashed by Sri Lanka in the recently concluded both Test and T20 series. Tamim Iqbal however, is hopeful that his side would come back strongly despite poor performance in their home soil.
“I and everyone in the team believe that we are just one win away from getting out of this place (bad run of form),” said a hopeful Tamim Iqbal.
He further added, “We tend to get panicked every time. We just lost one series and I think we are panicking. We have to stop this.”
To be noted, Bangladesh will play their first match in the Nidahas Trophy on March 8 against India.
