Tamim Iqbal announced his international comeback

Tamim Iqbal is yet to make his comeback after withdrawing his retirement decision. During the press conference he revealed that after the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) he will think about the international circuit. 

Earlier July, he announced his retirement through the press conference which he later withdrew the decision after his meeting with the Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and his ex-teammate Mashrafe Mortaza.  

In a recent interview, Tamim Iqbal said,

“After the World Cup, I felt that there should be a decision about my international future. Throughout my career I have always kept myself away from indecision.  I have always been very open and clear about whatever decision I have taken in my life.  I was not in the country for quite some time so this meeting with the BCB (Bangladesh Cricket Board) president was due.

We held the meeting today because we had to postpone it yesterday too.  Today is actually not a great day to do all this. The test match against New Zealand starts tomorrow. Since we had to do the meeting today, his statement afterwards was always forthcoming, So I apologize that I am doing this the day before the game. It is important for me and the Bangladesh team that there’s no impact of this in the game.  

I don’t want to keep things hanging for a few more months. I don’t want to stretch unnecessarily. After discussing a lot of things with the president and the board, I want to respect the decision and we will till January. I could have told you my plan today, but let me play in the BPL and then we will have another discussion for sure.” 

BCB President, Nazmul Hassan said, “There wasn’t enough time to discuss the matters. He said some stuff. but he came at a time when I didn’t have enough time for him. I have the elections in a month, I spend most of my time in my constituency. I told him I will listen and speak to a few more people after the elections. I want to know where the problem is and I want to go into depth.
