Tamim batted at nets straight after coming home
Bangladesh had the most experienced side coming to this World Cup and a lot was expected from the dependable duo Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal. Though the number one all-rounder gave a career-best performance, Tamim had a tournament to forget.
The dynamic opener could manage to score only 235 runs in 8 innings and scored only one fifty. He was heavily criticized for failing to perform throughout the tournament and the rumours are in the air that he even deactivated his facebook page due to the abuses from fans.
However, Tamim is disappointed as everyone as well. While all the players are resting and spending their holidays after returning home on 7th July, Tamim went straight to the Mirpur Indoor Stadium on Sunday to bat at nets. He was seen practising for a while.
Bangladesh will be touring Sri Lanka later this month to play three-match ODI series. Shakib Al Hasan, Liton Das and Mahmdullah are set to miss the series and it will be left to Tamim to take the responsibility and play a bigger role in the upcoming series.
After letting down the team and the fans, Tamim has taken his first step to win the hearts of the people again and the opener now only aims to come back stronger in the upcoming series against Sri Lanka.
