Bangladesh cricket crew’s batting mentor Jamie Siddons as of late thought that the ongoing One-Day International skipper and the country’s most productive opener Tamim Iqbal would do well batting at number four.
However, on Sunday, Tamim prevented any possibilities from getting batting lower down the request. He then, at that point, went onto deride the inquiry from the press, marking it as a ‘idiotic’ question.
Tamim addressed the media about it during an understanding marking occasion in Dhaka, where he became telecom organization Robi’s image envoy for quite a long time.
What might be better, me batting at number four or opening the innings? I do not know what was on the brain of the individual that posed this inquiry (to Siddons). In any case, it was an extremely moronic inquiry… Personally, I see no excuse to bat at number four. I’ve been doing fine as an opener throughout the previous 17 years.
In a worldwide vocation crossing more than 15 years, Tamim has emerged to bat for Bangladesh in 429 innings. In 428 of those innings he emerged to bat as an opener. The main time he batted lower down the request was against South Africa in a Test match in Potchefstroom in 2017.
In that match, Tamim was off the field for 49 minutes when South Africa pronounced their innings. Because of guidelines, Tamim wasn’t permitted to open the innings as he needed to pass on the time he was off the field. He in the long run emerged to bat at number five.
However, out of nowhere, on Saturday, Siddons told journalists in the wake of directing an instructional course at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka, “I feel that even Tamim would appreciate descending the request. I figure he would do perfect at number four.
