‘Pakistan is a wonderful country’

Tamim Iqbal has been in Pakistan for a short time to play in the Pakistan Super League (PSL). His team Lahore Calenders has also reached the PSL final. Their opponent in Karachi today is Karachi Kings. The match will start at 9 pm Bangladesh time in the field without spectators due to coronavirus epidemic. Earlier, Tamim Iqbal said in an interview that he always likes to go to Pakistan.

In an interview to ‘Cricket Pakistan’, the best opener of Bangladesh said, ‘It always feels good to come to Pakistan. But now the time is different. Having to stay in a hotel in an organically protected environment. Certain places are allowed to go. Even if you can’t enjoy the subject, you have to follow the rules. Pakistan is a wonderful country. Like our country, there are a lot of cricket fans here. They love cricket. ‘

Earlier, in an interview on a Pakistani TV channel, Tamim was asked to speak Urdu. He said, ‘I can’t speak Urdu because there are instructions from the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB). I can only speak Bengali or English. But I can say a little bit, I can say a word or two. ‘ Then he said in Urdu, “Assalamu Alaikum, pray for our team, so that we can win.”

Tamim was not supposed to play in the PSL play-off which was postponed in Corona. He has been taken as a replacement for Chris Lynn. However, the country’s best opener could not shine with the bat. He scored 18 runs off 10 balls with 1 six and 2 fours in the first eliminator against Peshawar Zalmi. In the next eliminator, he made 30 runs off 20 balls in 5 overs. He started well in both the innings and lost his temper. Let’s see if Tamim’s bat burns in today’s final.
