Tanzid Hasan Tamim, a young starter from Bangladesh, has been named to Shakib Al Hasan’s 17-person team for the Asia Cup 2023. It will start later this month. From August 30 to September 17, the cricket tournament will occur in Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Tamim, who bats with his left hand, had played in the 2020 Under-19 World Cup in South Africa, where Bangladesh won. Because of how well he has played since then, the young bowler is being trained to join Bangladesh.
Tanzid Hasan Tamim was included in Bangladesh’s Asia Cup 2023 squad
In July, the 22-year-old got 179 runs and three half-centuries in four games at the Emerging Teams Asia Cup in Sri Lanka. His strike rate was 117. “Our national selection panel has a lot of faith in Tanzid,” Minhajul Abedin, the head of the panel, told reporters. “I hope he’s getting ready to give the country something great.”
Tamim takes over as leader from Tamim Iqbal, who had to miss the Asia Cup because he was hurt. The Bangladeshi officials also picked lower-order batsman Shamim Hossain. He has played 17 T20Is for Bangladesh but hasn’t played an ODI yet. Taijul Islam, a left-arm spinner, has been cut from the team. Minhajul said that Nasum Ahmed, who is “more defensive,” was chosen instead for the flat pitches expected at the Asia Cup. Minhajul said that Bangladesh’s team for the World Cup, which will be held in India in October, might not be the same as the team for the Asia Cup. “We have until September 5 to develop a team for the World Cup.
“Until then, the Asia Cup is all we care about,” he said. In Group B of the Asia Cup, which starts on August 30, Bangladesh will play with Sri Lanka and Afghanistan. Shakib Al Hasan, who can play many different sports, will lead ODIs again.
