Tamim entered the indoor after getting off the team bus. Throw down and batted on the bowling machine for about an hour. Sometimes coach Hathurusinghe gave him various advices.
The sky of Sylhet has been cloudy since this morning. It has been drizzling since morning. At times it was a torrential downpour. On such a day, I remember a line from Kabiguru’s poem, ‘Ogo, aj tora jas ne hile bahire.’ On such a day is the perfect time to rest. Everyone was. Only one exception. He is Tigers captain Tamim Iqbal Khan.
After returning from the Zimbabwe series in August last year, Tamim was injured for a long time. Missed the important series against India. Then returned to England series. But the bat does not have the old glow. Set in three matches. But could not extend the innings. And the day before, he was out against Ireland in a spectacular way.

But the previous day, Bangladesh was excellent in batting. Set a record score. It also won by a record margin. After such a victory, the whole team was on holiday today. Although there was an opportunity to do optional exercises. But Sylhet’s weather stopped it. But Tamim was not stuck. He came to practice alone.
Basically the previous day’s failure seems to have chased Tamim. The way he gave the catch in the hands of Sterling while playing to drive being well outside the off-stump, why not worry about it? So this morning, head coach Chandika Hathurusinghe and spin bowling coach Rangana Herath came to the field. The logistics manager of the team and his elder brother Nafis Iqbal were also with him.
Tamim entered the indoor after getting off the team bus. Throw down and batted on the bowling machine for about an hour. Sometimes coach Hathurusinghe gave him various advices. Talked with Herath also. Maybe try to find out what is wrong somewhere. However, Tamim has batted very fluently in practice. Now the main goal is to show it on the field.
