Tamim Iqbal out of T20 World Cup 2021

Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal has decided not to play in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 to be held in UAE and Oman to give a fair chance to the performing openers.

Iqbal briefed Bangladesh Cricket Board president Nazmul Hasan and chief selector Minhajul Abedin about his decision before making the announcement on his Facebook page.

Iqbal said: “A while back I called my board president and chief selector. I want to share this with you. I told them I don’t think I should be in the World Cup squad. There are a few reasons why. I am not available for the tournament. The biggest reason is the timing of the game. I haven’t been playing in this format for a long time.”

Iqbal also claimed that his long-standing knee injury was not the reason for his decision, as he would have regained full fitness before the tournament began. “I don’t think my knee injury is a cause for concern as I was going to recover before the World Cup.

“The main reason it clicked with me when making this decision was because I don’t think it would be fair to the players who have played in the last 15-16 T20Is that I haven’t played. I was probably going to be in the world. Cup team, but I believe it would not have been fair to those players.”

Iqbal also clarified that he was not retiring from the shortest form of the game, adding: “I want to make it clear that I am not retiring but I will not play this World Cup. I think it A right decision. Youngsters who are playing in the national team should get the opportunity. Their preparation will be better than mine. They will probably be able to serve the team better.”

Iqbal has played 74 T20Is for Bangladesh, scoring 1758 runs with one century and seven half-centuries. He last played a T20I against Zimbabwe in Dhaka in March 2020.
