Mahmudullah Riyad will be leading Bangladesh in the absene of Shakib Al Hasan in their upcoming T20 series against Sri Lanka. Tamim Iqbal did not seem to be concerned about the matter that he had not been given the captaincy despite being Shakib’s deputy. He will remain the vice-captain of the side in this series as well.

The left-handed batsman was more concerned about Bangladesh’s lack of T20 games until now and the busy schedule that lay ahead of them.

Tamim reportedly said, “If you see closely, normally we don’t play a lot of T20s. But if you look at our fixtures for the next six months to one year, you will find that we will play a lot of T20s.

“So, I think this is the perfect time to decide on the balance of the team and what we want to plan going forward. If we get can get ready quickly, it will be good for us because the T20 World Cup is in 2020. So there is still a lot of time to go.”

According to the opening batsman, Bangladesh have room for improvement in the shortest format of the game. He also talked about the newcomers and disussed their strengths.

“I believe that we can do a lot better than we did in this format. Plus, we also play in an international level domestic tournament which is the BPL. So, I hope we play a lot better,” Tamim said.

“Rahi is well deserving. He has been a top performer in the BPL for the last two years when it comes to bowling. Ariful Haque has also been performing in the BPL for the last 2-3 years. We always talk about needing someone who can finish the game, someone who can hit big and, in that regard, he is very capable. His place in the squad is also well deserved,” he added.
