Former South Africa captain Faf du Plessis has showed interest to play the Bangladesh Premier League Twenty20 during a Facebook live session with Bangladesh ODI captain Tamim Iqbal on Wednesday.

Faf was the first foreign guest in Tamim’s live sessions, which has become a social media sensation in the country as it observes an unofficial lockdown due to coronavirus pandemic.

Host Tamim started the topic on BPL saying, “Do you follow BPL? I don’t know but you have to come and play for my team next season.”

“Obviously I am interested to take part in BPL. But I don’t think this is the right platform to talk about that (laugh)s!” Faf said in reply.

“I have not seen any matches live as it is not shown in South Africa but I try to follow scores and performances of people that I know,” the former Proteas captain added.

During the 34-minute long session, Faf praised the growth of Bangladesh cricket compared to what he saw since his international debut in 2011. 

Faf explained how Bangladesh now have many performers whereas a few years back the team had to rely on only one or two performers.

“There was a time when Bangladesh team used to rely on one or two performers. But now you have many players who can change the game at any time. We saw you play a wonderful brand of cricket during the World Cup 2019. It was expected that you would play well. But the way you really played was amazing,” said Faf.

Faf later emphasized on executing Bangladesh Cricket Board’s plan of having the Asia XI v World XI T20I series once the world recovers from coronavirus situation. 

BCB had planned a two-match T20I series involving the biggest of names of the cricket world to mark the birth centenary of the Father of the Nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

“Like you told me this would have been massive [for Bangladesh]. I hope this will take place after cricket gets back to the field and not only this year but I think something like this should happen every year,” said Faf, who was set to lead World XI.       

Tamim has been dominating the social media platforms with his unique live show “Tamim Iqbal Live” with the intention of keeping people entertained as the country follows an unofficial lockdown since March 26 due to Covid-19 pandemic.

Tamim in his next episode, on Friday, is set to share the frame with India vice-captain in limited-overs, Rohit Sharma. 

The session will be televised live on Tamim’s Facebook and Youtube handles.
