Third consecutive ODI series win against
West Indies, moreover he became the man of the series. Having lost the Test and T20 series, he
pulled the team standing on the edge of the abyss and floated in the joy of victory. However,
Tamim Iqbal Khan, the one-day captain of the Bangladesh cricket team, is not thrilled. After
whitewashing the Caribbean, does not want to place these victories too high.
The Tigers were well supported by spin at Guyana's Providence Stadium. So, an extra spinner was
added to the XI in the last match with a pacer. Tamim's thrill is lost mainly because of this.
He said, ''I don't want to keep these victories too high. Not too thrilled about it. Because
there was too much support for the spinners. If we play on a good wicket, we should play
After winning the second match, the coach and captain said that they want to test the strength
of the bench in the last match. However, the day before the match, it was reported that the
Bangladesh team is walking on the old path. Why such a decision? After the match, Tamim also
gave his explanation, ''I wanted. But the management said that they wanted a full strength team.
Tamim added, "We knew match will be played on the same wicket. As a result, there could only be
one change. Playing Taijul in place of a pacer, I was also able to understand that. Because the
talk was that when the team is doing well, that's how it should end."
Team Bangladesh ODI captain also said, ''If you want to go forward, you have to test the
strength of the bench. Otherwise, how would I have known Taijul had this quality, or Mosaddek's
bowling ability. We must have to test these. Maybe don't test five people at once, one or two
people have to be tested. But this is how the world's big teams do it in ODIs, they change
players when they win a series. We have to show more courage. Again we have not done this
before. As a result, a dilemma always remains. I'm sure you'll see in the future. ''
Despite not being able to take advantage in the first two ODIs, the Caribbean added the highest
number of runs on the scoreboard in the last match. The Tigers was in a hurdle to cross the run.
However, the captain said that it would have been better if the margin of victory was bigger,
''There is no end to improvement. The wicket was hard, not unplayable. If I had won by 7 or 8
wickets, I would have told it as an improvement. Because at one time it was not sure where the
match was going. ''
Tamim said, "We need to improve on these small things. We can't say what will happen if we play
against a better team, on better wickets. Bowling, batting, everywhere needs improvement. Though
we are winning, we can't say that all the problems are not solved. We are solving them slowly.
When we start winning, people hide their weaknesses. I don't think so. I'm trying, hopefully it
will be better in the future.'
As an ODI captain, moving ahead with the aim of next year's World Cup, Tamim said, ''2023 World
Cup is the goal. I am in that process. But I don't want to look too far ahead. We don't know
what will happen in future. Who will be injured or not, nothing can be said.
