After making it into Bangladesh’s Asia Cup team and with the World Cup coming up soon, Tanzid Hasan Tamim seems eager to fill the big shoes of Bangladesh’s opener.
Named for Tamim Iqbal’s injury made room for Tanzid to join the team, and the 22-year-old talked about how Tamim had helped him grow up.
“Listen, I’ve heard this a long time. I grew up watching him play, to be honest. Because his name was like mine, it made me want to watch the game. Since I was a kid, I’ve watched the game more because of this. “Everyone, including me, looks up to him,” Tanzid told reporters today at a press meeting.
“I try to learn a lot by watching how he controls everything and plays in any situation. Definitely an example to follow. We talk about everything when we get together.”
Tanzid thinks that the Tigers’ first spot in the hitting order is just as important as the other spots.
“Of course, it is important to be Tamim’s replacement. Every position is important for each person, not just mine. So I will do my best to keep the spot,” Tanzid said.
