BCB chief selector Minhajul Abedin said about the boycott, “We all know that Tamim Iqbal has been troubled by injury for a long time. He returned for the New Zealand series. There was a little complaint after the first match. We thought about it.” His injury is a matter of concern if he is not included in the team. We have talked to all concerned parties before taking this decision. We discussed this with Tamim. I can’t tell you what we talked about. We discussed it with the team management, and they didn’t. ‘I don’t want to take risks in a long World Cup campaign. This is a very important event.”
The BCB had initially said that the squad for the World Cup would be announced at 5:45 pm on Tuesday, but the announcement was later delayed until after the third ODI between Bangladesh and New Zealand. A few extra hours fueled speculation that a last-minute change might occur, but that did not happen.
The medical team decided to rest Tamim along with several other players of the ODI team for the third match against New Zealand.
“You can’t take risks with some injuries,” Abedin said. “If someone gets injured in the World Cup, it will put the team management in an uncomfortable position. He played the first two matches, but we had to rest him. He had a little pain after the second game. We had considered it earlier Taking decisions.
“Tamim is one of our best players, but injury concerns limit his ability. He was suffering from back pain for a long time, so the New Zealand series was a chance to test his fitness. He played the second game perfectly. Played with, but he didn’t do that.” We will not play the third match. We discussed it with the medical team, after which we took this decision.”
Mehdi Hasan, who batted at four positions in ODIs this year, will remain a Miraj floater. Mehdi is likely to open in some matches, but his main role has been at number 7.
