Bangladesh may visit Pakistan: Tamim


ISLAMABAD: Bangladesh Test opener Tamim Iqbal ascribes his team Peshawar Zalmi’s run of success in PSL to a combined team effort although he himself has turned out their highest run-getter thus far.

He also hoped Bangladesh may play a few games in Pakistan, may be next year. “I also find my success to a new mental approach for every match”, he said in comments to Gulf News “Our victories have been purely due to team effort and the way we are playing is amazing.

“I have played in Sharjah couple of years ago but hadn’t played in Dubai. The first couple of games I was struggling a bit. I thought I was not batting the way I like to bat but I am lucky enough to score runs, which is good.

The confidence they (management) are showing towards me is quite amazing,” he added. When asked about the PSL experience, Tamim whho is one of the most sought- after players in T20 cricket, said that “IPL has done great for Indian cricket, BPL has done good to Bangladesh cricket and PSL is the best thing that can happen to Pakistan cricket.

“This is just the beginning of the tournament and surely this tournament will get better and better. I hope next year Bangladesh national team will be able to play a few games in Pakistan.”
