Tamim Iqbal is in the favor of the ODIs

At a time when the schedule is packed with the T20Is, concerns are growing about the importance and importance of the ODIs and the format has garnered widespread support from none other than Bangladeshi skipper Tamim Iqbal.

The Bangladeshi ODI skipper calls the 50+ format “very important”, echoing the same opinion recently expressed by the ICC regarding the future of the one-day format.

At a time when the schedule is packed with the T20Is, concerns are growing about the importance and importance of the ODIs and the format has garnered widespread support from none other than Bangladeshi skipper Tamim Iqbal.

“I think the ODIs are a very important format. Not only I said it, but also the ICC. Everyone likes to watch games in this format.”

said Tamim.

“If you look at the ICC’s major tournaments, the T20 World Cup isn’t as big as the ODI World Cup. This is a very important format in cricket.”

With a total of 120 points from 18 games, Bangladesh currently sit second in the ICC Men’s World Cup Super League and are close to securing their ticket to direct qualifiers for the 2023 World Cup in India.

However, the upcoming ODI series between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe is not part of the ICC Super League.

Ahead of the three-day T20I series, which saw Bangladesh lose 2-1 to the same opponents, Tamim has urged his side not to see Zimbabwe as a weak opponent and to be aware of their mistakes.

“If we take into account the strength of the two teams we are ahead, but in cricket the team that performs on any given day wins the game. Zimbabwe beat us in the T20Is because they played better than us. It’s the same here and if we want to beat them we have to play our best cricket. They are a very dangerous team on their own terms.”

Tamim told reporters in Harare on Thursday.

“We must correct our mistakes while doing what we have done right so far. The most important thing is that we have to keep our process going so that we can do well even in difficult conditions.”

he said.

Tamim is having a good time scoring runs in the lead having won five series before coming to Zimbabwe. The winning streak began when Bangladesh defeated Sri Lanka on their own home ground.

He then led his side to victory against Zimbabwe, South Africa and the West Indies in their home territories last year, while beating Afghanistan on their home soil. However, the left-hander is not ready to take anything for granted.
