Sometimes you scold us: Tamim to Mominul
Mominul Haque is current skipper of Bangladesh in longest format. Although he is a new comer in the team prior to the senior players. But he has got the responsibility of maintaining the Test side after Shakib Al Hasan has been prohibited for violating anti-corruption code of International Cricket Council (ICC).
In a live session with Bangladesh ODI skipper Tamim Iqbal, opener Soumya Sarkar and Liton Das, Tamim sarcastically said to him that he scolds the senior players sometimes. Although Mominul understood the fun and he denied initially. But he also asserted that for the betterment of the team it’s necessary to watch over everyone being a single entity.
Tamim praised Mominul for his leadership excellency and remind him to do his best for the betterment of Test format.
“Mominul, you have biggest responsibility of Bangladesh cricket. You are now captain of Test format. Now we have three different captain in three format. The biggest format is Test cricket and it’s an honor to be the captain of that side. I believe this this the most honored position in cricket.
“Now you have the biggest responsibility for Bangladesh. As I know you very much close perspective, I feel you as absolutely the right person to lead the Test side. We are not much strong in the Test side. But the way you are leading, sometimes you scold us(laugh)and I hope you can go a long way.”
Mominul Haque was handed over the responsibility of the skipper in 2019. After taking the responsibility of captaincy, Mominul showed glimpse of his leadership many times.
