Tamim is enthusiastic about the ODI format

The format has gotten backing from none other than Tamim Iqbal at a time when the cricket calendar is filled with T20 competitions and there is an increasing issue over the viability and relevance of ODIs. In addition, there is a rising concern over the profitability of T20 tournaments.

The skipper of Bangladesh’s one-day international team referred to the format as “extremely vital,” which is the same opinion that the International Cricket Council (ICC) recently affirmed in reference to the future of 50-over cricket.

“In my opinion, one-day internationals are a really significant format.” That wasn’t just me who said it; the ICC did as well. “I think everyone enjoys watching matches played in this manner,” added Tamim.

If you look at the major competitions hosted by the ICC, you will notice that the Twenty20 World Cup is not as significant as the One-Day International World Cup. Within the sport of cricket, this is a very significant format.

Bangladesh is now in second place in the standings of the ICC Men’s World Cup Super League, having accumulated 120 points from a total of 18 matches played, and they are extremely close to confirming their straight qualifying into the 2023 ODI World Cup that will be held in India.

The next one-day international series between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe will not, however, be a part of the ICC Super League.

Tamim has urged his squad to not take Zimbabwe casually and “rectify their faults” in advance of the three-match series, which follows closely on the heals of their defeat in the Twenty20 International series against the same side.

“If we examine the strength of both teams, we come out on top; nevertheless, in cricket, the team that performs better on the day of the match is the one that takes home the trophy. The Twenty20 Internationals that Zimbabwe played against us were won by them because they played better than us. It is the same situation here as well, and in order for us to triumph against them, we need to play the best cricket we can. According to Tamim, who was speaking to media on Thursday in Harare, “under their own circumstances, they are a very dangerous side.”

“We need to correct our errors while continuing to accomplish the things that we have done correctly up to this point. According to him, the most important thing is for us to keep up with our procedure so that we may do well despite the challenging circumstances.

Before coming to Zimbabwe, Tamim had already won five series in a row, giving him a solid run of form as the leader of his team. The beginning of Bangladesh’s current winning streak under Tamim’s leadership came a year ago, when the country overcame Sri Lanka in their home stadium. After that, he led his team to victories over Zimbabwe, South Africa, and West Indies at their respective backyards throughout the course of the previous year, in addition to beating Afghanistan at their home stadium.

Nevertheless, Tamim is not prepared to take anything for granted at this time.
