The flamboyant opener has been hospitable when doing the live sessions and tried to entertain the viewers with the catchy phrases which he has been doing in press conferences over the years. Firstly, Tamim invited Mushfiqur Rahim his mate to do the live session in Instagram. From that day onwards the shows were trended all over the country.  Then he invited Mahmudullah Riyad in his show.

After that Tamim invited Mashrafe Bin Mortaza to do the live session in Facebook, the two senior statesman of Bangladesh cricket had a bit of a chit chat about cricket and their own thoughts about their own lives. Mashrafe rested his confidence in Tamim to lead the Tigers to more achievement.

He said the left-gave opener was hesitant to take up the captaincy work prior, however this time Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has figured out how to persuade him. The former skipper sounded confident about TAMIM’s leadership off the field would allow him to shine in his new position as captain. He urged his successor to trust his ‘gut feeling’ as captain, be patient with the juniors, and expect the ride to be bumpy.

The live sessions showcase Tamim’s drive to keep the team together in dire times as the conversations reminded fans of their fun-loving persona amid the ongoing crisis.

On a different note, they brought up the issue that many players live on their earnings from the Dhaka Premier League or DPL, which along with all other sports in the country is now suspended due to the lockdown. They hoped DPL would resume as soon as the lockdown is lifted.

There have been reports in the media of Tamim coming to the aid of 91 sportspersons who have seen their finances severely hit by the shutdown.

“I have been in sports for a long time but I have never seen a fellow sportsman help out athletes from so many disciplines at once. It wasn’t that he was trying to help well-known cases, but he tried to help anyone who has fallen on hard times due to this current situation. Tamim bhai came to the rescue of many families,”

Mahfuza Khatun Shila, a Bangladeshi swimmer was quoted by saying after receiving aid from Tamim.

Then after that the next was done with Rubel, Taskin and Nasir as the special guest. That extra mingle was reached when Tamim started doing all those live sessions with those international players like Faf du Plessis and Rohit Sharma. That is when the sessions went international, but the long awaited live was done with Virat Kohli who committed Tamim to entertain the people from all around the globe. The whole purpose was also served in each and every way possible.

A couple of days ago, Tamim did the live session with legends of Bangladesh cricket like Akram Khan, Minhajul Abedin Nannu, Khaled Mashud Pilot and Wasim Akram as the special guest. Wasim Akram came and praised Bangladesh cricket with his positive words, which was nice to see for all the spectators of Bangladesh.

It can also be added that Tamim’s live show just did not only entertain the fans the words of the international players like Kohli, du Plessis and Rohit can act as a mantra for all the young cricket players there is no doubt about that. The show Tamim has been putting up in the live session passed on a lot of cricketing knowledge to all the current and young cricket players who have been following.

To say the least each and every session of Tamim had an extra bit of an amusement and diversion for the people who watched from all around globe.
