Tamim Iqbal is one of the hard-hitting batsman from Bangladesh. He plays some special shots very well. He is a good stroke maker and loves to hit boundaries of anything outside the off stump. But, many people don’t like him. Here are the top 5 reasons why people don’t like Tamim Iqbal:
1. Nephew Of Akram Khan:
Akram Khan, the former captain and best batsman of Bangladesh is now one of the 3 selectors of the Bangladesh cricket team. Tamim Iqbal is his nephew. Many people think that, Tamim is getting more chances than any other else despite playing small innings. So, they don’t like Tamim at all. But, what they don’t understand is the way Tamim plays, is very vulnerable in modern day cricket. In modern times, very few players can play longer innings in a good strike rate. Again, Nafis Iqbal, the elder brother of Tamim Iqbal, is also the nephew of Akram Khan. Is there any answer from the Tamim haters, why he is not in the team right now?
Well, the fact is, Tamim is a far better opening batsman than most of the other players in Bangladesh. Not only that, he is a good choice for all other teams in the world who want a hard-hitter in their squad.
2. He Is An Opener:
People blame the one who fails at first. When the batting innings of Bangladesh starts, people expect high in their minds. When any of the openers gets out, they think that he is the biggest culprit of the batting collapse. When a batsman batting at 3 or 4 gets out, people become habituated with the feelings that we are going to lose. So, they feel less sorry at that time. But when Tamim gets out, everyone blames him as they were thinking that Tamim could have been not out and we would have won the match easily.
Well, the fact is, opening position is very tough. The best bowlers from the opposition bowl with the new ball to them. So, technically solid players are given promotion to that spot. Tamim has played some spectacular innings in that spot and won many matches for us playing in his own fashion. We should not forget those.
3. His Rough Behavior:
Hard-hitting batsmen like Tamim Iqbal are rough in their behavior. They always want to be outgoing and expressive. Some people don’t like it and they hate Tamim.
Well, the fact is, we should judge a player for his playing capabilities, not by his behavior. Yes, the behavior means a lot. But, what is the benefit if we get a well-behaved player and he can’t play like Tamim?
4. Gold Fish Memory Of The Supporters:
Bangladeshi people have a disease of forgetting the recent past. They forget what people did to them a month ago. So, they forget the good innings played by Tamim Iqbal. They hate Tamim for no reasons at all. The problem is not in Tamim actually. The problems are residing in the Tamim haters. They only remember the bad innings played by Tamim. So, they get frustrated and want Tamim out of the team.
5. Political Reason:
Tamim was seen with the leader of a political party in a few occasions. So, people thought that Tamim is supporting that party. The opposition party supporters thus hate him for this reason.
Actually, nobody knows what political view Tamim carries. Tamim is a citizen of Bangladesh and he has the right to support any political party he wants. But, that is not related to cricket. It will not hamper his game also. So, those who think this way, has a poor mentality than any other people in this world.
