Sujan said Tamim is fully fit after recovering from injury.
This star opener of Bangladesh returned to the field after recovering from injury. Tamim also practised for Tamim’s team Khulna Tigers in BPL. Overcoming the apprehension, he is ready to give his hundred per cent by starting preparations for the team with the bat. Tamim’s team also played a warm-up match before taking the field. And there, Tamim batted for a while and got himself ready. Coach Khaled Mahmud Sujan also said that Tamim will be a 100% fit in BPL.
Sujan said, “Insha’Allah Tamim has recovered quickly. I think he is in perfect condition. He went to Bangkok and came back fresh from there. Batting well in the nets in the last two days. I also told him to go a little slow as our game is on the 7th. He is professional. The cricketer has been playing international cricket for a long time, so he knows well how to recover from injuries. How to get fit again. We are getting him from the beginning in BPL. I hope he will give his hundred per cent.”
Among the foreign players in Khulna Tigers are Wahab Riaz, Naseem Shah, Azam Khan, Dasun Shanaka, Aviska Fernando, and Paul McCrane. All the players are joining the team one by one. Sujan feels that everyone has been a balanced team. In the interview, Sujan also said, “In BPL, all teams want to win the title. Our team is good with the combination of domestic and foreign cricketers. If we can play according to our abilities, we are sure to do well in BPL”.
BPL started on January 6. Bangladesh Cricket Board has expressed hope for a packed cricket tournament with 7 participating teams. Khaled Mahmud’s eyes are now on the title in this tournament that appeared with the thrill of T20 cricket. His team did not taste the title despite taking Barisal to the finals in the last season. This four-time runner-up coach wants to become the champion. Now let’s see if Khulna Tigers will taste the title for the first time with his hands.
