It would have been better if Shakib-Tamim had remained friends for the sake of the country, both of them would have stayed in the team, stood by each other. But it was not good.
With 9 matches to play in the World Cup, the physically fit ones will do well in this long series — Australia, New Zealand, India, Pakistan, even Afghanistan. What great fitness of each! England are also strong, but they have homesickness again.
In this situation, the omission of Tamim, who is not 100% fit and not in touch with the captain, has been the best of the worst, or the worst of the best. I thought, if Bangladesh wins both of the 9 matches, then we have to think that this team has done very well. Bangladesh won a match, now that seems like a good result. The way the Afghans are playing, the victory against them seems unlikely now.
It has been proved once again that good cannot be done without adequate preparation. Shakib proved what David Schenck said, you can be a genius if you practice. If you don’t practice, you are ordinary. Shakib came with great talent, but he proved in the 2023 World Cup that success cannot be achieved without practice, discipline, concentration, pursuit, sacrifice, meditation, concentration.
