Comilla coach Salahuddin: Tamim right to express frustration with Mirpur wicket
Comilla Victorians coach Mohammad Salahuddin has thrown his support behind captain Tamim Iqbal after the left-handed opener said the Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium wicket in Dhaka is unacceptable for T20 cricket following their BPL 2017 clash against Rangpur Riders Saturday. Salahuddin said Tamim was right to express frustration regarding the wicket and informed that the wicket is bad for T20 cricket. “Tamim has spoken true words. He has the right to say the truth. Wicket was not good at all in that match. If anyone faces criticism after telling the truth then I have nothing to say. But Tamim definitely said the right thing,” Salahuddin said during the post-match press conference in Mirpur Tuesday.

When asked about his opinion regarding the wicket in Dhaka, compared to Sylhet and Chittagong, Salahuddin said they expected better pitches this time around. “I would not rate Dhaka wickets good for T20 cricket. Wickets often produce two types of bounce. Some deliveries get low and a few bounce over the head. It’s really difficult for batsmen to score free runs out there. Wickets are getting enough rest in this year’s tournament as there is one day gap after every two match-days. So definitely we can expect better wickets this time,” he explained. Earlier, Tamim received a show cause letter from the BCB after criticising the Mirpur wicket.

After their game against Rangpur, Tamim had said, “We always hear that since so many matches are played on these wickets, the pitch behaves the way it is doing now. But now? No games have been played in this ground for the last 10 days. But still we get such unacceptable wicket for a T20 match. “I feel sorry for the spectators. The batting side scored only 97 and the chasing team had to bat until the last over of the match to reach their target. It’s very much frustrating for the spectators, and even for the teams as well. “Our cricket board and we, the players, all want to carry BPL to the next level, in terms of standard. But to reach the next step, we must play on good sporting wickets. It is frustrating to play on such kind of rubbish wicket. I am saying this, despite winning the game.”
