Faruque is hopeful of Tigers’ recent Asia Cup performance and now some positive signs in World T20. He said, “We lost a close match against India, before that we also played in Asia Cup Final. That means, we are moving forward in T20Is in the same way we did in ODIs. We lost the match, that’s why I am also sad. If we could’ve won that match, we would be still in chance for Semi Finals.”
Nasir Hossain is with the Bangladesh squad in World T20s. As an experienced player, Nasir has been benched. The main selector Faruque Ahmed has to listen many talkings. But he said he has nothing to do. Nasir is not playing by the decision of coach and captain.
“Nasir is not playing in the team. The team management thinks, Nasir cannot do the batting at number 7 which the team needs. The coach and captain can say why he is not in the team, because they set the elevens,” added Faruque Ahmed.
