Misinterpreted Journalism

To be honest, the media in Bangladesh is one of the lowest classes labeled by cricket experts after such a scenario. They’ve always misinterpreted facts and once again the rubbish media made a mess of Tamim’s fitness issue news.

Board Chairman’s Grievance

Obviously, the Media’s news couldn’t make a serious difference until the board chairman awkwardly revealed his grievance on the issue in front of the media. Probably, it was the turning-out factor for the case which resulted in the retirement of the alluded cricketer. No doubt, it was seriously unprofessional from the Chief of the Board.

Social Media Reactions

People see what they are shown. Media made the massacre of the news and people were tied with blinders in their eyes by the “Fitness Issue News”. And somehow those reactions this time mattered to the board and they were in a hurry to increase some extra baggage of pressure on the player that forced him to retire at such a stage.

Distance with Team Management

It was another crucial and truly vital factor that founded the stage for Tamim’s early departure. Perhaps, the management had some other wishes over the captaincy role and Tamim’s bad spell with the bat along with a bit of negligence over the fitness issue might have created such distance.

Internal Clash with Shakib Al Hasan

Another reason one may consider and the internal sources reveal that the clash was possibly due to the captaincy role. However, both of them are dedicated and proven cricketers. Ego might have got the better of them but no doubt, even with such conditions, both of them would be keen to perform their level best for their country’s welfare at the biggest event of cricket.
