Tamim not worried about Afghan’s spin attack!
CRICDOT DESK : Bangladesh faced Afghanistan for the first time in the 2014 Asia Cup. In his first ODI appearance, the 32-run rate seemed to convey the message that the Afghans will never be an easy opponent. In this Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong, Bangladesh also lost in the Test in front of them. So when the Tamim Iqbals were waiting to start the ODI series against them, the Afghan ‘juju’ wanted to turn around.
Tamim also had to answer multiple questions about it at the press conference. However, the ODI captain of Bangladesh also wanted to show the record of their success against the Afghans in the reverse ODI version and make it clear that this time the opponent is not as scary as it seems. In particular, Rashid Khan, Mujib-ur-Rahman and Mohammad Nabi’s good faith in ODIs was heard in Tamim’s voice. “I don’t want to talk too much about any particular bowler,” said the opener, who asked why he had not won against three Afghan spinners before. That said, their bowling is very good. Probably the best spin attack they have. But we have done much better against them in the past. Especially in the ODI version. Then why not? ‘

Even though it started with a loss, Bangladesh’s chances of winning the ODI against the Afghans are heavy. In the eight ODIs played so far, Tamim is leading 5-3. Legspinner Rashid Khan also could not get much advantage in 50 overs cricket against Bangladesh. He took 10 wickets in six matches. The last time these two teams met was in the 2019 ODI World Cup. Rashid was wicketless in that match. Mystery spinner Mujib also took 6 wickets in three matches against Bangladesh.
