Sports Desk: The Bangladeshi cricket team wanted at least one win this time on the New Zealand tour. But the tigers couldn’t get the last laugh in either ODI or T20 format. Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudullah Riad and Mushfiqur Rahim have written all the stories of past failures and disappointments.
The Tigers have lost all three ODIs and three Twenty20 rounds on the New Zealand tour. So the tigers returned to the ground this afternoon without tasting victory on the shores of Tasman.
Cricketers, team staff and officials landed at the capital’s Hazrat Shahjalal Airport on a Singapore Airlines flight at around 11.15pm Bangladesh time after a month and a half tour.
Tamim Iqbal and Hasan Mahmud will not be on the team after returning to the country at the end of the ODI series. Everyone else has returned on the same flight. Rumor has it that Mostafizur Rahman would go to India from New Zealand via Singapore to play in the IPL. But he doesn’t.
Tigers don’t get a chance to rest back on the ground. Because they’re going to Sri Lanka at the end of this month. Repeats two sets of mass tests.
