Bangladesh ODI captain Tamim Iqbal has issued a challenge to his players by declaring spots are still up for grabs in his side for the upcoming 2023 ODI World Cup. The challenge was made ahead of the three-match ODI series against Ireland starting on 9 May at the County Ground, Chelmsford.
Tamim Iqbal has called on his players to make improvements and prove their worth ahead of the World Cup. He said that there were no particular spots that were already fixed and that everyone had to work hard to earn their place in the squad. He also added that he wanted to see more consistency from his players and that they needed to be able to perform under pressure if they wanted to be successful in the tournament.
Players Respond To Challenge
The Bangladeshi players have responded positively to Tamim’s call for improvement. They have been working hard in training and are determined to prove themselves worthy of a spot in the squad. The team is confident that they can make it through the group stages and into the knockout rounds of the tournament if they continue to work hard and stay focused.
Bangladesh Favourites Against West Indies
Tamim Iqbal has also declared Bangladesh as favourites against West Indies when they meet later this year. He believes that his side is well-prepared and ready for any challenge that comes their way during the tournament. With a strong batting line-up, experienced bowlers, and an improving fielding unit, Bangladesh will be looking forward to making an impact at this year’s World Cup.
