Top Online Casino And Sports Betting

In a surprising turn of events, Tamim Iqbal has decided to withdraw his retirement announcement just a day after emotionally declaring it in Chattogram. This change of heart came after a meeting with Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, held on Friday afternoon at her residence in Dhaka. Tamim, accompanied by his wife, was joined by former captain Mashrafe Mortaza and BCB president Nazmul Hassan during the meeting.

Although the official announcement came on Friday afternoon, We learned about the meeting as early as Thursday evening. It is understood that Mashrafe, who is a member of parliament, initiated the process by reaching out to the prime minister to seek her intervention in this matter. Until then, Tamim had refused to discuss his retirement with Hassan.

On Thursday afternoon, Tamim had made an emotional retirement announcement in a live TV broadcast. Throughout his 13-minute monologue, he broke down several times, capturing the attention of viewers and dominating discussions on both airwaves and social media.

However, a different Tamim appeared before the media on Friday evening outside the Prime Minister’s residence. He revealed that he had been granted a six-week break to recover from his injuries.

The honorable Prime Minister invited me to her residence this afternoon,” Tamim explained. “We had a lengthy discussion, and following her instructions, I have decided to return to cricket. Therefore, I am officially withdrawing my retirement.”

This unexpected turn of events has brought relief to Tamim’s fans and supporters, as they eagerly await his return to the field after this much-needed break to recuperate.

Tamim Iqbal expressed that it is impossible to refuse the most important person in the country, referring to the intervention of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. He acknowledged the influential role played by Mashrafe Mortaza and BCB chief Nazmul Hassan in the reversal of his retirement decision. The Prime Minister has granted Tamim a break of one and a half months to focus on his treatment and recovery before returning to the cricket field.

Hassan, relieved by the outcome, shared his belief that a solution was within reach. He emphasized the importance of face-to-face discussions and expressed gratitude for the opportunity to sit with Tamim and convince him to reverse his retirement. Hassan confirmed that Tamim is not retired and will undergo rehabilitation during the six-week break to regain his physical and mental fitness, ultimately making a comeback to cricket.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is greatly relieved by Tamim’s decision, as they cannot imagine playing without their captain. However, Tamim will not be part of the remaining matches in the series against Afghanistan after making his retirement announcement following the first ODI. Litton Das has been appointed as the captain for the upcoming matches on July 8 and 11.

Overall, the turn of events has brought a sense of relief to Tamim, the BCB, and fans, as they eagerly await his return to the cricketing arena after a well-deserved break for treatment and recuperation.
