The cricketers have started training ahead of the upcoming BPL. Dhaka Stars opener Tamim Iqbal Khan has been batting in the net for a long time. He also worked on his own fitness. Mustafizur Rahman of Comilla Victorians has immersed himself in bowling. Apart from Tamim and Mustafiz, Jubayer Likhan and Rezaur Rahman Rajara are preparing themselves for personal practice. They consider BPL as a stepping stone to enter the national team.
Mustafiz was then engaged in light stretching at the academy ground in Mirpur. That’s when Tamim entered in a happy mood. Raising the wide bat, he called out to Fitz. Batting on the net, their fight became quite intense.
Tamim Iqbal Khan has been out of the national team since the series against Zimbabwe due to injury. Mustafiz in voluntary exile from Tests. Future busyness means upcoming BPL. Tamim in an aggressive manner ahead of this tournament. Thirty minutes went by like this. Cutter, Slower, Swing, Yorker; Phiz could not beat this dashing opener at all. Tamim has done almost every ball without boundaries.
Young pacer Rezaur Rahman Raja prepared himself for the side wicket while Tamim-Musta duo was going on. In this year’s BPL, the one who will win will be in Chattala’s jersey. The right-handed pacer is a well-known face among those who regularly look for domestic cricket in the country. He was also called up for the Test squad against Pakistan. Even though he didn’t get a chance to serve, this time he proved himself in waiting sorter format.
Rezaur Rahman Raja said about this, the big thing is, such an opportunity has come. I can share the dressing room. There is so much to learn. Learning from here. So that we can do better in the future. First I enjoy cricket. Whatever the format, try to do something good.
Reza was asked by Samay News whether he has any separate goal for BPL. In response, he said, of course, the goal will be. This is a great platform for us. I will try my best to get into the national team by performing well here.
The teams will officially start training for the BPL from the second week of next month. Before that the cricketers will do optional practice. Ahead of the eighth edition of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), a players’ draft was held at a star hotel in the capital on Monday (December 26). The franchises have shown some surprises in this year’s event.
