Second Test will be hard for Bangladesh : Tamim Iqbal
CRICDOT DESK : New Zealand is an irresistible name for all the teams in the world at home. They have not been familiar with the word defeat in their fort since 2016. They also has the crown of the first world champion of Test cricket on his head. Bangladesh has given birth to a unique history by defeating New Zealand on their soil.
New Zealand is a bigger nightmare for Bangladesh. The defeat that has taken place since 2001 has reached 32 in the last 20 years. Mount Manganui Test Bangladesh’s journey has been interrupted by a fairytale victory. However, Tamim Iqbal does not consider Bangladesh as the favorite in the second and final Test in Christchurch.
New Zealand also started as clear favorites in the first Test. Tamim, who is not in the squad for this year’s tour of New Zealand due to injury, thinks the Kiwis will start as favorites in the second Test as well. Even though he is not with the team, he must have seen his teammates playing on the TV screen. Regarding the Christchurch Test, the Bangladesh ODI captain said, “New Zealand is also a favorite in the next Test. But Bangladesh also has a chance. ‘

Tamim came to a Facebook live last night for the purpose of promoting cash of commercial organization. In response to a question there, the left-arm opener added, “Our problem is that after a win or an innings, we give feedback very quickly. I said a few days ago, Sohan (Nurul Hasan) is probably the best wicketkeeper in Bangladesh. No doubt, I’m 100% sure. He is a great keeper. This does not mean that Mushfiqur Rahim, who has been wicketkeeping for 14 years, will compare (Nurul) with him after a series! ‘
After winning the Mount Manganui Test, Tamim was a little surprised to see so many supporters of the Bangladesh team. Noting that they are not available at the worst of times, he said, “New parties or these discussions … opinions change very quickly. This morning it seemed to me that all of a sudden the cricket fan base in Bangladesh has increased a lot. So many days but no one was. Today I see that many cricket fans are from Bangladesh. Everyone is giving status. It is very easy to be by your side in good times. It’s hard to be in bad times. “
