Aggression is what keeps fast bowlers ticking and when the left-arm paceman played the U-19 World Cup for Bangladesh there was plenty of that on view, especially in their triumph against India in the final.
The victory makes Afghanistan just the second team to win an ODI series in Bangladesh in the past seven years after world champions England. It was also Afghanistan's biggest win against Bangladesh in ODIs
“Look, obviously we all were shocked after the way Tamim bhai retired and it was unexpected for us. Since we had a break that day, we came for training the next day and we prepared individually for the game. But everyone felt bad after the incident. However, we planned for the game and prepared ourselves,” Miraz told the media after the game
Tamim's press conference will be held at Tower Inn Hotel in Chattogram at 1:30pm. He had personally sent text messages to the journalists late midnight, asking them to be present at the press conference which was initially scheduled for 12pm.
Shakib Al Hasan and Hridoy contributed 37 for the fourth wicket but once the former departed to a loose shot, no big partnerships developed. Hridoy felt conditions were moderately good but the team did not bat well
A dominating all-round display from Afghanistan saw the visitors win the rain-interrupted first of the three-match ODI series against hosts Bangladesh by 17 runs via DLS at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram yesterday.
Bangladesh's pacers were instrumental during the Tigers' record Test win and, given the recent rise in the hosts' pace unit, the visitors did their homework in terms of tackling the seamers during a 14-day training camp in Abu Dhabi
"I'm not going to discuss somebody's medical history here but he [Tamim] has trained the last two days and he's good so far. We're closely monitoring his progress as well as how he recovers after training. He is training as usual," the head coach relayed during the press conference.
