Tamim puts blame on Bangladesh batsmen

After losing the first Test in Chattogram, Bangladesh are in the backfoot after first two days of the Dhaka Test as well, and Tigers senior member Tamim Iqbal believes they have no one but themselves to blame for this.

In reply to West Indies’ first innings total of 409, Bangladesh were 105 for four at stumps of Day 2. According to Tamim, Bangladesh’s lavish style of batting has become concerning.

“I think we are here because of our own fault. We would have been in much better position had we not made all those mistakes,” said Tamim, who got out scoring 44 off 52 balls with the help of 6 fours and a six.

Tamim is also of the opinion that the wicket should not be accused of, as it has been quite batting friendly.

“First of all, the wicket was very good. It was excellent even when we came to bat. There was nothing wrong with the wicket. I think, we lost those four wickets not because of some good bowling or the wicket. If you observe closely, the batsman was at fault for every wicket.

“With two more wickets in hand and this score, we would have been in a better position for sure,” Tamim added.

Bangladesh are currently trailing the Caribbean side by 304 runs. Tamim expects that a partnership worth 100 or 150 runs on the third day can bring them back in the competition.

“I must admit, they (West Indies) are on top right now. But if we can build some good partnerships tomorrow, one of 100-150 runs, then we could come back to the game. A lot will depend on the partnerships.”
