Tamim cautious of immense World Cup workload

Bangladesh is all set to feature in a tri-series in Ireland ahead of the all-important World Cup in England and Wales. This important series that involves West Indies and hosts Ireland, is a golden chance for the Bangladeshi players to acclimatize to the swinging conditions that await them in the mega event.

With such a hectic schedule and two months of cricketing action in sight, veteran opener Tamim Iqbal has announced his reservations over the potential burnout for players. He has thus advised the management to focus on resting key players during the tri-series, which will decrease their workload and reduce the chances of getting injured.

“The only [negative] I see here is playing 13-14 matches in around one and a half months. We do not get to play much in those conditions. The key will be to rest the people who need it, especially in Ireland. We cannot afford to rest them in the World Cup,” he said.
