Imrul Kayes has been out of the national team for a long time. Despite proving his mettle in domestic cricket, the selectors are not favoring him. Meanwhile, after a statement made by Tiger ODI captain Tamim Iqbal about him, the discussion started again.
In a recent interview to the media, Tamim Iqbal expressed his views on taking Imrul to the ODI team. When asked about that on Friday (December 24), BCB President Nazmul Hasan Papon said that the doors of the national team are open for any cricketer if he performs well. Imrul must return after performing.
Papon said, if you want an ODI captain, it will not happen anymore. If someone wants to return to the national team, he has to return after performing. And Imrul has not been in the team for so long, he never said this. This is being said right now.
The BCB president said that there is a matter of selection, there is a matter of coach-captain. But you have to perform first. If someone plays well, he will get a chance in the automatic national team. If you don’t perform, there will be no benefit no matter what you say. ‘
He said, in what position will he (Imrul) actually play in the team? He bats four times in domestic cricket. At this time Papun countered, does Tamim want to play him in place of Mushfiqur? Does that mean Mushfiqur will be removed? I do not know any such thing. Tamim can tell his plan. The coaches who are in charge, the selectors have to tell them. There is no point in telling the media.
