But when asked why Tamim is leaving T20 cricket, the Tiger opener said, “Many cricketers have left T20 before. Big cricketers have done the same. One of our favorite formats of ODIs, I also enjoy. Test cricket is a format that has been around since I started playing cricket. Then there were two wishes. One is that I will play for Bangladesh, and I will play Test. ‘

Tamim wants to make his Test career bigger after retiring from T20. At the press conference, Tamim said that he wants to play for Bangladesh for another 4-5 years. “I want to play Tests as long as possible,” Tamim said. I am 33 years old. Many made their debut at 34-35. They play for another five years. I still have four or five years to play good cricket. If my performance and fitness is good, I will play for another four or five years. ‘
