A dramatic episode unfolded in Bangladesh cricket during the late hours, as the current captain, Shakib Al Hasan, took a strong stance by declaring his unwillingness to participate in the ICC World Cup 2023 if the injured Tamim Iqbal were to travel with the team to India.

Both players met with the President of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), where Tamim candidly admitted his incomplete fitness, stating that he would only be ready to play in five of the matches.

This revelation did not sit well with Shakib, who issued a resolute ultimatum, threatening to exit the team if Tamim was included in the World Cup squad.

The animosity between Shakib and Tamim had been a longstanding issue, prompting Tamim to announce his retirement from one-day internationals. However, following a meeting with the Prime Minister of Bangladesh, he decided to rescind his retirement announcement.
