একটু কি বিরক্ত দেখাচ্ছে তামিম ইকবালকে?

প্রথম আলো


ভিসা ফরম জমা দিতে বোর্ডে গিয়ে সেটা ছিঁড়েই ফেললেন তামিম ইকবাল! রেগেমেগে বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড (বিসিবি) অফিস থেকে বেরিয়ে চলে গেলেন বাসায়। যাওয়ার সময় কোচ জেমি সিডন্সকে বলে গেলেন, হাতে ব্যথা নিয়ে তাঁর পক্ষে অনুশীলন করা সম্ভব নয়।
হাতের চিকিৎসা করাতে তামিমকে অস্ট্রেলিয়া পাঠানোর সিদ্ধান্ত পরশু বোর্ড সভাতেই আনুষ্ঠানিকভাবে নেওয়া হয়েছে। সে অনুযায়ী তাঁর ভিসা-প্রক্রিয়াও শুরু হয়ে যাওয়ার কথা ছিল গতকাল। কিন্তু ভিসা ফরম পূরণ করে কাল দুপুরে সেটা জমা দিতে তামিম সহকারী ক্রিকেট অপারেশন্স ম্যানেজারের কাছে যাওয়ার পরই লাগে গোলমাল। বোর্ড সূত্রে জানা গেছে, অস্ট্রেলিয়া সফরের জন্য বিমানভাড়া, থাকা-খাওয়া ও চিকিৎসা খরচসহ মোট সাড়ে ৩ লাখ টাকার বাজেট বরাদ্দ করা হয়েছে তামিমের জন্য। কিন্তু তামিম এতে সন্তুষ্ট হতে পারেননি। বিমানভাড়া দেওয়ার পর এত ‘অল্প টাকায়’ চিকিৎসা করিয়ে আসা সম্ভব নয় বলে মনে করছেন তিনি। বোর্ড বিমানের ইকোনমি ক্লাসের টিকিট ধরে বাজেট করলেও তামিম চাইছেন বিজনেস ক্লাসে যেতে এবং সে অনুযায়ী বাজেট বাড়াতে। এ নিয়ে সহকারী ক্রিকেট অপারেশন্স ম্যানেজারের সঙ্গে কথা-কাটাকাটির একপর্যায়ে জাতীয় দলের ওপেনার রেগেমেগে ভিসা ফরম ছিঁড়ে ফেলে তাঁর রুম থেকে বেরিয়ে আসেন।
সূত্র জানিয়েছে, তামিম পরে বিষয়টা নিয়ে বিসিবির ভারপ্রাপ্ত প্রধান নির্বাহী কর্মকর্তা নিজামউদ্দিন চৌধুরীর সঙ্গে আলোচনা করেন। ক্ষুব্ধ তামিম তাঁকে জানিয়ে দেন, প্রয়োজনে ছুটি নিয়ে নিজের টাকায় অস্ট্রেলিয়া গিয়ে চিকিৎসা করাবেন, তবু এত অল্প টাকা নেবেন না। তিনি ভারপ্রাপ্ত প্রধান নির্বাহীকে তাঁর ছুটির ব্যবস্থা করার অনুরোধ করেন। নিজামউদ্দিন চৌধুরী বিষয়টা দেখবেন আশ্বাস দিয়ে ভিসা-প্রক্রিয়াটা সেরে ফেলতে বলেন। কিন্তু তামিম নিজের অবস্থানে অটল থাকেন। তামিমের ঘনিষ্ঠ একটি সূত্র জানিয়েছে, হাতের ইনজুরি থেকে পুরোপুরি সেরে না উঠলে প্র্যাকটিস করে তিনি আর ঝুঁকি বাড়াতে চান না। অস্ট্রেলিয়ায় গেলে চিকিৎসক যদি বলেন, হাতে অস্ত্রোপচার করালে সমস্যা পুরোপুরি দূর হয়ে যাবে এবং অস্ত্রোপচারের মাস দুয়েকের মধ্যে সুস্থ হয়ে উঠবেন, তাহলে অস্ত্রোপচার করিয়েই দেশে ফিরবেন তিনি।
এ ব্যাপারে টেলিফোনে তামিম ইকবালের বক্তব্য জানতে চাইলে তিনি কোনো মন্তব্য করতে রাজি হননি। কাল অনুশীলন না করার কারণ হিসেবে বলেছেন, ‘শরীর খারাপ ছিল তাই কোচকে জানিয়ে বাসায় চলে এসেছি। শরীর ভালো থাকলে কাল (আজ) প্র্যাকটিসে যাব।’ কোনো মন্তব্য করতে রাজি হননি সহকারী ক্রিকেট অপারেশন্স ম্যানেজার শরিফুল ইসলামও। বিসিবির ভারপ্রাপ্ত প্রধান নির্বাহী কর্মকর্তা নিজামউদ্দিন চৌধুরী অবশ্য ঘটনার সত্যতা স্বীকার করে বলেছেন, ‘বোর্ডের নীতিমালা অনুযায়ীই আমরা তামিমের অস্ট্রেলিয়া যাওয়ার বাজেট এবং অন্যান্য বিষয় ঠিক করছি। তবে তামিমের কিছু ব্যাপারে আপত্তি আছে। আমি এ বিষয়ে বোর্ডকে জানাব এবং বোর্ডই এ ব্যাপারে চূড়ান্ত সিদ্ধান্ত নেবে।’ তামিমকে বোঝাতে ভারপ্রাপ্ত প্রধান নির্বাহীর পক্ষ থেকে অনুরোধ করা হয়েছে তামিমের চাচা ও নির্বাচক কমিটির সদস্য আকরাম খানকে।
জানা গেছে, বোর্ডের নীতিমালা অনুযায়ী চিকিৎসার জন্য বিদেশে গেলে শুধু জাতীয় দলের অধিনায়কেরই পাওয়ার কথা বিমানের বিজনেস ক্লাসের সুবিধা। অন্য ক্রিকেটারদের ক্ষেত্রে ইকোনমি ক্লাসে ভ্রমণের নিয়ম। বোর্ডের ক্রিকেট পরিচালনা বিভাগও সে অনুযায়ী ইকোনমি ক্লাসে তামিমের অস্ট্রেলিয়া সফরের ব্যবস্থা করেছে। তা ছাড়া চিকিৎসার জন্য ক্রিকেটারদের প্রায়ই বিদেশে পাঠায় বোর্ড। একজনকে বাড়তি সুবিধা দিলে পরে অন্যরাও একই রকম দাবি তুলতে পারে।
ওদিকে পায়ের চোটের চিকিৎসার জন্য শাহাদাত হোসেনেরও বিদেশ যাওয়ার কথা শোনা যাচ্ছে। যদিও বিসিবির ভারপ্রাপ্ত নির্বাহী কর্মকর্তা বলেছেন, শাহাদাতের ইনজুরির ব্যাপারে আনুষ্ঠানিকভাবে তিনি কিছু জানেন না। তাঁকে বিদেশে পাঠানোর ব্যাপারেও কোনো আলোচনা নেই বোর্ডে। তবে ইনজুরির ধরন দেখে ফিজিও যদি শাহাদাতকে বিদেশে পাঠাতে বলেন, তাহলে বোর্ড ব্যবস্থা নেবে। ক্রিকেটারদের চিকিৎসার ক্ষেত্রে ফিজিওর পরামর্শ অনুসরণ করে বোর্ড সম্ভাব্য সেরা চিকিৎসারই ব্যবস্থা করে বলে জানিয়েছেন তিনি।
শাহাদাতের পায়ের সমস্যা বছরের শুরুতে ভারতের বিপক্ষে সিরিজ থেকেই শুরু। একটু জোরে বল করতে গেলেই ডেলিভারি দেওয়ার সময় ডান পায়ের কনিষ্ঠ আঙুলের নিচে ব্যথা হয়। ছোট একটা লিগামেন্ট ছিঁড়ে যাওয়াতেই নাকি এই সমস্যা। বিসিবির চিকিৎসক দেবাশীষ চৌধুরী তার পরও বলেছেন, চিকিৎসার জন্য শাহাদাতকে বিদেশে পাঠানোর আপাতত কোনো চিন্তা নেই, ‘শাহাদাতের ব্যাপারে আমরা তাড়াহুড়ো করতে চাচ্ছি না। কাল (আজ) আরেকটা ইনজেকশন দেওয়া হবে তাকে। এরপর এক সপ্তাহ বিশ্রাম, বলও করতে পারবে না আপাতত। ওর জন্য বিশেষ বোলিং বুটের ব্যবস্থা করা হবে। এর পরও যদি সমস্যার সমাধান না হয়, তখন বিদেশে পাঠানোর চিন্তাভাবনা হতে পারে।’

BCB should understand that they need to produce quality players in order to get rid of being female-cats in front of unprofessional arrogant attitudes of one or two performing players.

August 23, 2010, 06:01 PM
So let me get this right...BCB can pay 7,560,000 to Lance Klusener every year apart from all the other amenities that come with it, and not bump Tamim's class up a bit and pay more for the tratment?

I don't see much wrong in Tamim getting this mad over the matter. Every other country (that can afford it) has their players flying Business Class all the time...and this is just one player, one VERY IMPORTANT PLAYER WHO NEEDS HIS ALL IMPORTANT HAND CHECKED UP AND WORKED UPON!

If we lose Tamim before the World Cup because of this cheap mentality from BCB, who else do we have to fill his gap for now and the future? NO ONE!

Also, I can bet on it that this story has been spiced up and sensationalized for paper sales/ratings! Bloody yellow journalism :mad:!

I know BCB will probably argue that its the principle rather than the money itself that they cannot treat one player differently to others, but this is no time to mess with the Tamim Iqbal. wait until after worldcup atleast to start your patlami BCB! but for now just put him in the freaking business class and send him to austrailia!

Business class fares are usually 2.5 times more than economy. I am assuming additional 2 lakh taka. This is what the T20 champion team, yes the entire champion team got for winning the championship. You can arrange a mini national school championship with that money.

If Tamim wants business class, he should pay for the fare difference. He is our best player, but not above code of conduct for national players.
BCB paying 3.5 lakh taka for this trip! It's a lot of money, have some shame as 50% bangladeshis dont have money to buy 3 meals a day!

^^ - thats exactly what I was thinking. Tamim needs to come back down to earth. Pretty silly asking for more money and business class etc.

here is my 5 cents.

Tamim was on vacation for last month or so before the start of hardcore practice. I was upset at it to start with that he didn't pay attention to injury before. If he really was concerned of his well being, he should've put more effort into going to Australia right after UK trip. Now that coaches are talking about serious preperation for world cup... TIK decides to cry about going to Australia. Not only that, he also misbehaves like this. Unacceptable.

ialbd
August 23, 2010, 08:13 PM
BCB must NOT give in to Tamim's demand.... and Tamim must respect board rules...

Tamim is still very young, and if BCB agrees to meet his demand now, he'll surely take it one notch up next time (maybe demand a tax-free import of a luxury car, right before going out to bat before a WC match :) )

taking pride at what you do is a good thing, no matter how big or small.

But taking pride that you are better than the rest and should be treated as the best is wrong. Tamim is indeed a great player for BD team. This attitude and arrogance might lead to his downfall. Tamim is othering himself from the rest by implicating that he is better than the rest and hence should be treated exceptinally well. Where is the humbleness? I didn't hear Mashrafee complain about his trip to Australia. Tamim Iqbal needs to bring his feet on the ground, He is no Tendulkar yet!

yaseer
August 23, 2010, 08:35 PM
Not sure whether the 'business class' is the only issue here. I do not believe these journalists nowadays. But if it is, then Tamim is arguing for a wrong demand. What if tomorrow another player like Nayeem/Jahurul demands for business class as well? They are also same as Tamim is, national players. As BCB's policy is to provide business class to only the captain, then Tamim should abide by the policy and pay the extra money himself.

BD Tigers
August 23, 2010, 09:12 PM
shameful act by Tamim. If he needed more money for his treatment, should just ask for it after getting the bill. Also, trying to get a business class is just shows his mental state. He should know "Ohonkar potoner mul" - which is bad news for BD team.

ma_o_mati
August 23, 2010, 10:00 PM
this is what happens when you have 1 performing player and 10 non performing furniture, sorry players...other players need to perform or else the performing will think he is better than the dead woods and should be treated like the king...

after some thinking, give Tamim what he wants even more to make the non performing players jealous...jealousy can do wonders for BD team...BCB needs to be smart with this issue....it's an opportunity, make the likes of riyadh, ash, rahim, nayeem jealous...

Tamim is in way over his head. Lotus Kamal and Co. don't really give a crap about him or anyone else in our team. If they can make Shakib kneel down, i'm sure they can do worse. Tamim will most likely get away with it for right now because he is at the top of the world right now. But its not always going to be like this. The sooner he realizes that the better it is for him

Tamim should be traveling business class. He is too famous to be getting stuck next to two 'bangali fans' on the WHOLE FLIGHT. It is an inconvenience.

But I agree - if BCB's policy is to give only economy fair to all players then Tamim gotta pay the rest out of his pocket. Tamim has more than enough money to be traveling in business class on his own. BCB doesn't have to carry the tab for his $2000 underwear just because the undies feel better when he bats.

He is the best in his profession in his country right now, but in ten years' time I know I will be earning lot more than him. So why all this funtani? I am the best in my profession too..I wouldn't whinge about any economy class travel through my work... I go by what the rules say with my company and my government.

He plays in a team sport. About time he realises it. He will never be tendulkar's toe. Apart from the guy's talent and incredible hard work, tendulkar's is also a great person. Tamim is putting me off bangladeshi players big time. I've met Sri Lankan players and heard of the aussies..they're nothing like this. And half those guys are actual World Cup winners.

I am really quite divided in this issue. I understand the way Tamim approached the issue was wrong, this sort of arrogance will only bring about his downfall.
But then again, when a board can send observers to caribean in business class, why cant they send national team, A grade players in business class? These players earn the board huge amount of money and I think they deserve travelling in business class when going abroad. I think the whole policy should be changed, when a contracted player goes abroad he should be given business class tickets. These guys are well known all around the world and carry the name of Bangladesh with them, so travelling in business class should help establish a good name of Bangladesh cricket.
But the way Tamim reacted[as said in the newspaper], i reckon there might be something more to it then just the flight issue. If I recall Tamim did not want to play the Lord's test, but the coach and Shakib forced him to play and something similar has been going on since. He played with an injury for a while and it should have been the board's responsibility to take care of Tamim's[and all others] well being. If he is not mentally satisfied with his hand, he should be checked to get the best out of him.

Unacceptable. This is nothing but arrogance. The courteous thing would have been to accept whatever the BCB is offering and then upgrade where required with his own money. I hope the BCB stands firm and takes action against Tamim for his behaviour and for walking out on training.

Look at the Indian players. So many big individuals in the team (Sachin, Dhoni, Dravid) but none of them dare to defy the board and it's rules and policies. On the other hand even the losers in the Pakistani team don't listen to the board and do as they wish. If the board gives in to Tamim's demands it will start a vicious culture of "player power" like in the case of the Pakistanis. And in the future the behaviour will be much more vile and obnoxious.

agree.

Also some are saying if people can go as an observer and board is spending money on them why can't they spent the same on him... for those the issue is not what board is doing (which is not justified). issue is there is a rule for players and he is trying to break it. beside two wrong doing doesn't make it right. just because board is spending money on those observers doesn't mean its right to give in to demand of a LAL BABU.

who gives you guarantee that Tamim will play for Mohamedan ?? He may even play for DOHS if all big fish officials of DOHS give him "Lamborghini" ! dnt you know what he did last time with Abahani ?

However, if he really plays for Mohamedan without asking for any money, thats great gesture from him. But that does not justify his any misbehavior of any kind, not to say, breaking rules of any authority !

If this article is true, i think Tamim is over reacting. Rule is rule. no matter who you are. But i think the first class ticket is not the issue here. The issue is the amount of money he is getting to spend on Australia for his treatment. But whatever it is, it does not justify his misdemeanor.

I doubt the treatment is the issue here. It would be quite stupid for even BCB not to get one of their top players checked-up and treated properly. And anyhow wouldn't the bill be sent to them from the doctor directly? I don't know about Aussie healthcare but I doubt it is "pay before you get treated."

And stop posting the Mohammedan news here. It is totally irrelevant. One good deed does not justify a bad one.

I won't comment on the incident because the entire thing is still not that clear.
But Tiger-ess, I have to disagree with you on one thing- Tamim always had a reputation for being hot headed. It's very much in his character.

he got a brand new bmw 3 last year as part of his under the table deal with falu in return of his lat minute move to mohamedan from abahony.

[বাংলা]অনেক নাটকের পর তামিম অস্ট্রেলিয়া যেতে রাজি

স্পোর্টস করেসপন্ডেন্ট
বাংলানিউজটোয়েন্ট ফোর.কম.বিডি (http://www.banglanews24.org/newlocation/bangla/detailsnews.php?nssl=d0353558f3ae8b91febe82f5a735b b06&nttl=201008246274&toppos=1)

ঢাকা: অভিমানের মেঘ কেটে গেছে। নিজেকে বোঝাতে পেরেছেন তামিম ইকবাল। বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড (বিসিবি)’র ব্যবস্থাতেই চিকিৎসা নিতে যাচ্ছেন অস্ট্রেলিয়ায়।

জট বেধেছিলো অস্ট্রেলিয়ায় যাতায়াত ব্যবস্থা নিয়ে। বিসিবি থেকে ইকোনোমি কাসে অস্ট্রেলিয়া যাওয়ার ব্যবস্থা করা হয়েছিলো। তামিম ইচ্ছা পোষণ করেছিলেন বিজনেস কাসে যাওয়ার। তা না হওয়ায় এ নিয়ে সোমবার ক্রিকেট পরিচালনা বিভাগের সহকারী ম্যানেজার শরিফুল ইসলাম সেলিমের সঙ্গে ঝামেলায় জড়িয়ে পড়েন তামিম। প্রত্যক্ষদর্শীরা জানিয়েছেন সহকারী ম্যানেজারের সঙ্গে খারাপ ব্যবহার করেছেন।

ঠান্ডা মেজাজের শরিফুল ইসলাম এ নিয়ে কারো কাছে অভিযোগ পর্যন্ত করেননি। উল্টো তামিম মিডিয়া কমিটির প্রধান জালাল ইউনুসের কাছে অভিযোগ করেন, শরিফুল ইসলাম দুর্ব্যবহার করায় তিনি রেগে গিয়ে ছিলেন।

কিন্তু ঘটনার সময় উপস্থিত বিসিবির অন্য কর্মচারিরা বাংলানিউজটোয়েন্ট ফোর.কম.বিডিকে জানিয়েছেন উত্তপ্ত হওয়ার মতো কোন কথাই তামিমকে বলেননি শরিফুল ইসলাম। বরং ভালোভাবে বোঝানোর চেষ্টা করেছেন।

শরিফুলের সঙ্গে শুধু রাগ দেখিয়েই থেমে যাননি জাতীয় দলের নির্ভরযোগ্য এই ব্যাটসম্যান। উল্টো ঘটনাস্থলেই অস্ট্রেলিয়ার ভিসা ফর্ম ছিড়ে ফেলেন।

এরপর হাতে চোটের অজুহাতে প্রধান কোচ জেমি সিডন্সের কাছ থেকে দুই দিনের ছুটি নিয়ে বাসায় চলে যান মারকাটারি ব্যাটসম্যান তামিম।

মঙ্গলবার কয়েক ঘন্টা তামিমকে বোঝানোর চেষ্টা করা হয়। কিন্তু নিজের অবস্থান থেকে একচুলও সরতে রাজি হননি। ভারপ্রাপ্ত প্রধান নির্বাহী কর্মকর্তা নিজামউদ্দিন চৌধুরী থেকে তামিমের চাচা আকরাম খান এবং বিসিবির মিডিয়া কমিটির প্রধান জালাল ইউনুসও সন্ধ্যা পর্যন্ত বাগে আনতে পারেননি।

প্রত্যেক কর্মকর্তাকে তামিম সাফ জানিয়ে দেন বিজনেস কাসে যাতায়াতের ব্যবস্থা করা হলেই কেবল বিসিবির ব্যবস্থায় অস্ট্রেলিয়া যাবেন। কর্মকর্তারা শেষে হাল ছেড়ে দেন। জালাল ইউনুস সাফ জানিয়ে দেন এ বিষয়ে সিদ্ধান্ত নেবেন বিসিবি সভাপতি আ হ ম মোস্তফা কামাল (লোটাস কামাল)।

জালাল ইউনুসকে তামিম বাববার একই কথা বলেছেন,“অন্যদের যে সুযোগ-সুবিধা দেওয়া হয়েছে আমার বেলায় সেই নিয়ম নয় কেন?”

এর উত্তরে মিডিয়া কমিটির প্রধান তামিমকে বলেছেন,“একটা নিয়মের মধ্যে আসার জন্যই আমরা এই উদ্যোগ নিয়েছি। বোর্ডের চুক্তিভুক্ত সবাইকে যদি বিজনেস কাসে চিকিৎসার জন্য দেশের বাইরে পাঠাতে হয়, তবে আর্থিকভাবে ক্ষতিগ্রস্ত হবে বিসিবি।” তামিমও পাল্টা বলেছেন,“এর আগে সাকিব এবং মাশরাফিকে বিজনেস কাসে পাঠানো হয়েছে।” ইউনুস বলেছেন,“তারা দুজনই অধিনায়ক হিসেবে অস্ট্রেলিয়া গেছেন।”

সন্ধ্যা নামতেই ভোজবাজির মতো সবকিছু বদলে যায়। তামিম টেলিফোনে প্রধান নির্বাহী কর্মকর্তাকে জানিয়ে দেন বিসিবির ব্যবস্থাতেই অস্ট্রেলিয়া যাবেন। এবিষয়ে জানতে চাইলে বাংলানিউজটোয়েন্ট ফোর.কম.বিডিকে তামিম বলেন,“ভেবে দেখলাম যাওয়াই ভালো। তাই সিইওকে আমার সিদ্ধান্তের কথা জানিয়েছি।” এর বেশি কিছু বলতে রাজি হননি।

বিসিবি কর্মকর্তাদের সঙ্গে বৈঠক শেষে তামিম সাংবাদিকদের যা বলেছিলেন:

প্রশ্ন: অস্ট্রেলিয়া যাচ্ছেন?

তামিম: খুব সম্ভবতো যাচ্ছি।

প্রশ্ন: বোর্ড থেকে যাচ্ছেন?

তামিম: নো কমেন্টস।

প্রশ্ন: আপনার ক্ষোভটা কমেছে?

তামিম: আমার কারো প্রতি ক্ষোভ নেই। সব কিছুই স্বাভাবিক। বোর্ডও আমার সঙ্গে খারাপ ব্যবহার করেনি। আমিও বোর্ডের সঙ্গে কিছু করিনি।

প্রশ্ন: প্র্যাকটিস করবেন?

তামিম: অবশ্যই করবো। দুইদিন আমি ছুটি নিয়েছিলাম। আজ (মঙ্গলবার) জেমিকে (প্রধান কোচ) ফোন করে বলেছি কাল থেকে অনুশীলনে যাবো।

প্রশ্ন: সোমবার কখন ছুটি নিয়েছিলেন?

তামিম: শরীরটা একটু খারাপ মনে হয়েছে। হাতে ব্যথা অনুভব করছিলাম। এরপরই দুই দিনের ছুটি নেই।

প্রশ্ন: ছুটি কে দিয়েছিলো?

তামিম: আমি বোর্ডকে জানিয়েছিলাম। নিয়ম মেনেই ছুটি নিয়েছি।

প্রশ্ন: ছুটিতেও বোর্ড অফিসে এসেছেন কেন?

তামিম: পত্রিকায় কিছু কথা এসেছে। সেগুলোর যুক্তি খন্ডাতে।

প্রশ্ন: কেউ কি আসতে বলেছিলো?

তামিম: না, আমি নিজে থেকেই এসেছি।

এরপরই ইউনুসের কাছে তামিমের অস্ট্রেলিয়া যাওয়ার বিষয়ে জানতে চাইলে বলেন,“আমরা তামিমকে বোঝাতে চেষ্টা করেছি। এখনও সে নিজের অবস্থানেই আছে। আশা করি বোর্ড সভাপতি আসার পর এবিষয়ে সিদ্ধান্ত নেবেন।”

তিনি আরো বলেন,“ও একটু ভুল বোঝেছে। তামিমের ধারণা হয়েছে অন্যদের থেকে একটু কম গুরুত্ব দেওয়া হচ্ছে তাকে। আসলে তা নয়। সে আমাদের খুবই গুরুত্বপূর্ণ একজন খেলোয়াড়। তার সঙ্গে কখনোই বৈষম্য করার প্রশ্নই ওঠে না।”

রাতে জালাল ইউনুস আবার ফোনে খবর দেন তামিম অস্ট্রেলিয়াতে যেতে রাজি হয়েছেন।

গতবছর নভেম্বরে ভারতের বিপক্ষে টেস্ট সিরিজ খেলার সময় ডান হাতে চোট পান তামিম। ম্যাটাকার্পালে চোট এখনো পুরো সারেনি। হার উঁচু হয়ে আছে। সে জন্যই চিকিৎসা নিতে অস্ট্রেলিয়ায় পাঠানো হচ্ছে তামিমকে।[/বাংলা]

Call him hotheaded or arrogant, but the kid does have ambition, on and off the field. Here in US, if you deliver the goods, you can better leverage to gain more for yourself. There is nothing wrong with that here to a certain extent. Anyway, little bit drama to talk about with no games around.

Tamim is young and he is ill tempered. But he is the most consistent performer. If he needs more money there's a descent way to ask for it. This kind of incident can happen and hopefully everything will be ok. He should go to Australia soon enough so that we get him for as many practice matches as possible before the WC.

Tamim to rejoin training today
The Daily Star, August 25, 2010 (http://www.thedailystar.net/newDesign/news-details.php?nid=152143)

After two days of break opener Tamim Iqbal will join the training today at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.

The whispering was there that the dashing left-hander skipped the training for the second successive day out of anger, as he was disappointed with the Bangladesh Cricket Board's arrangement of the Australia trip.

BCB has decided to send Tamim to Australia for checkup of his injured hand that incurred during an ODI in Chittagong against India on November 5 last year. The board took the decision as the dashing left-hander had been experiencing lingering pain on an old injury.

Tamim however dismissed the allegation. "I took the break after consultation with my coach (Jamie Siddons). I was not feeling good and there was also pain in my injured hand. I will join the training tomorrow," Tamim explained the reason behind his absence while talking with the reporters after a long discussion with his uncle and selector Akram Khan, acting CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury and BCB's media committee chairman Jalal Yunus yesterday.

"No comments" was the answer when he was asked about his resentment over the BCB's arrangement. It was learnt that the young batsman vehemently reacted when he learnt that he has to enjoy the economy class for the trip. Tamim has been demanding for business class.

The opener was also not ready to confirm whether he is going to Australia under the board's arrangement or he is going at his own cost.

"There was nothing wrong with the board. I leave it to the board. Let's see what happens," said Tamim.

But it seemed that BCB found itself in a spot of bother with the issue. The officials apparently tried to convince Tamim during yesterday's long meeting and finally he agreed to go in the economy class.

Apparently, it all cleared up for Tamim when he had a chat with skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza regarding the travel arrangements.

"The problem has been solved. Tamim agreed to go as per the board's arrangement. Tamim is one of our key players and board will do everything needed but there is some criterion which we have to follow," said Yunus.

"I think there was some misunderstanding and Tamim was not clear about all the procedure but everything is now clear to him. Only the captain enjoys the business class in such cases and as well we also consider for some special case," he added.

when my aunt went bangladesh two years ago by biman she was seated near a toilet and the whole journey she was suffering from the urine smell that occupied that area,(the AC didnt help the situation)it was only towards the end they moved her after much request!
last year my brother went and had cramps in his legs for several hours after getting off the plane as he is a fairly tall boy and there was no place where he could stretch his legs.

so bottom line, is it ok for our best player by far at the moment, to travel in these conditions (just because the plane fare's not coming out of his pocket)?? errr NO!

Bhai, apni Tamim er upor beshi kora hoitesen mone hoe. Tamim did make a mistake, the way he acted was nothing but stupidity, but he is a grade A player, and by playing ONE ODI he earns enough money to go to Aus in first class, so it's understandable why he wanted to go in business class. And I think the board provide business class tickets for all A grade players.
Also, I don't buy that Tamim did not know that the captains only got business class tickets. If such a simple line was the solution, the board must have said this to him earlier. Its times like these I wish our players had twitter :D

August 25, 2010, 09:54 AM
I am really quite divided in this issue. I understand the way Tamim approached the issue was wrong, this sort of arrogance will only bring about his downfall.
But then again, when a board can send observers to caribean in business class, why cant they send national team, A grade players in business class? These players earn the board huge amount of money and I think they deserve travelling in business class when going abroad. I think the whole policy should be changed, when a contracted player goes abroad he should be given business class tickets. These guys are well known all around the world and carry the name of Bangladesh with them, so travelling in business class should help establish a good name of Bangladesh cricket.
But the way Tamim reacted[as said in the newspaper], i reckon there might be something more to it then just the flight issue. If I recall Tamim did not want to play the Lord's test, but the coach and Shakib forced him to play and something similar has been going on since. He played with an injury for a while and it should have been the board's responsibility to take care of Tamim's[and all others] well being. If he is not mentally satisfied with his hand, he should be checked to get the best out of him.

tamim himself wanted to play the lord's test,it was his dream to score a 100 in lords and he didn't want to miss the opportunity

How easily we twist the fact. Shakib & the coach just encouraged him to play in the Lord's test & he himself wanted to despite the injury as the next test for BD in Eng is in 2020. And you are making it sound like Tamim was threatened or something. Shakib is his best friend in the team & he himself is Siddons's favourite. Also do you honestly think anyone can get away with messing with Tamim the gangsta?

beshideshi
August 25, 2010, 10:29 AM
^^ my wording was a bit too strict, I should have said " Tamim was hesitant about playing the Lords test, and it was Shakib and Jamie who convinced him to play", of course Tamim wanted to play as well but that meant risking his injury. A quote from a cricinfo article ****"I went to a specialist yesterday, and he said you've got two choices," Tamim said. "Either you play with taping and hope there won't be any harm, or you can have surgery that will take three months. We have a very busy schedule so the team management told me to decide, so I am seeing another doctor today [Tuesday], and if he gives me the green signal, then I'll play the first match, and think about surgery when I am free.****
So, Tamim did take a pretty big risk playing the Lord's test and the following matches, if Tamim was hit on the hand, people would have said "what a stupid decision to play" and he would have been out for a good six months. He still played on with the injury and the board and fans should realise the sacrifice he has made.
I could not find the article, but I recall reading that when Tamim was unsure whether to play or not, Shakib and Jamie asked him to play and take the risk.

So, Tamim did take a pretty big risk playing the Lord's test and the following matches, if Tamim was hit on the hand, people would have said "what a stupid decision to play" and he would have been out for a good six months. He still played on with the injury and the board and fans should realise the sacrifice he has made.

Playing on with that injury was no sacrifice, it was a stupid act, no matter if he got hurt or not. Our world cup was not at stake, we were not winning a test series, we lost comprehensively and in the result Tamim could not make a difference, more importantly he was not expected to make a difference. So, why take the risk?

During playing those tests, Tamim's focus was always on himself, never on the team. He wrote his name on the Lord's book; but to the team the contribution is negligible. When he scored the century he considered his job done irrespective of the team situation. So, I do not call it a sacrifice. It was a stupid act motivated by the desire of self-exposure.

^^^well everyone has their own dreams and they should pursue it if they have a chance and that's what tamim did.however,getting himself out(i am not saying that he did it intentionally but he should have been more careful) when the game was pretty well balanced to our side was very stupid.i wouldn't blame him for wanting to fulfill his dream and call him selfish but i would call him stupid and careless for not being able to continue and partly selfish as well

Tamim to be cautioned

Opener Tamim Iqbal is going to receive a cautionary letter from the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) for showing indecent behaviour against a board decision.

The young batsman had vehemently reacted when he learned that he has to sit in the economy class for the Australia trip and had been demanding for business class. The dashing left-hander reportedly tore the visa form in front of a BCB employee but later, he agreed to go as per the board's arrangements.

"The cricket operations committee has been asked to take proper action on this matter. We can't overlook it because the incident tarnished the board's image even abroad. We can't breach the code of conduct," said BCB's media committee chairman Jalal Yunus yesterday.

BCB has decided to send Tamim to Australia for check-up on his injured hand that took place during an ODI in Chittagong against India on November 5 last year. The board took the decision as the dashing left-hander had been experiencing lingering pain on an old injury.

Tamim is likely to fly for Australia on August 31

This boy needs to grow up and be a man. I understand that he's the most talented and useful batsman currently in the side, but that doesn't give him the right to get more previledges than the rest of his teammates. Remember, he already probably earns between 3 to 10 times the rest of the team. The economy class ticket was something every member in the team got (barring captain), and he has no right to demand for upgrades. He should have quietly paid for the upgrade himself.

He has done this kind of things before. If he doesn't pull his head in, he will be disliked by all his teammates very soon. He has to be very careful. I think this incident has permanently ruled him out for the Bangladesh captaincy.

Shahadat is another primadona. He also is apparently about to get treatment overseas. If th board had caved in to Tamim, then he would have done the same thing. This kind of behaviour by Tamim really needs to stop. Look at KP. He is very talented, yet many cricketers don't like him. In the latter part of his career, he would always be treated more harshly than others due to his brutish personality.

why should he be grateful??? Tamim is an asset to bangladesh and its people ,a very valuable asset, it is BCB's DUTY to look after him and and take every possible step to insure he has good health. 3 lakhs was NEVER enough for this entire saga!! Come on your telling me he had to fly out to austrailia, stay in a hotel, eat 3 meals a day, get treatment from a specialist, taxi fares, fly back to bangladesh....with 3 lakhs?? so that BCB scums can make a profit from the actuall amount they should've given him and spend it on personal laxuries??

you people are seriously jumping the gun here! I think there's a lot more to it than just Tamim's desire to fly business class here, he's even mentioned in an interview he feels singled out! he's clearly fustrated and jumped at the first chance to vent his frustartion!

While I do agree with nahaz that he should take it upon himself for the upgrade, this fact that a person needs to be likable is utter risible.

A cricketer's job is not there to go and make friends with teammates in a frat party. His job is to act with bat and ball. And that's precisely what this guy does. Romario, Kobe, McEnroe and many others are known for there ghaar tera attitude which SHOULD rather be the norm of the team.

Look at me. I am the most hated person in BC forum. But I am not gonna change an iota of my personality to gain others favors.

It is a very Bangladeshi cultural mentality of trying to "khoot dhora" of others saying such cliche tripe as "she show offs" or "eeeeh mathay uita gese" or "nijeke shey kee mone kore" or "faizlami korar jaiga pay na." It's the very nature of Bangladeshi people "nijeke naa unnoti koira onnoke dabay rakha." This sort of sickening mentality has already ruined Ash's career, and this sort of constant nonconstructive criticism of HATE will only bring other's downfall.

"Never having been able to succeed in the world, he took his revenge by speaking ill of it," said Voltaire and that's precisely many fellow Bangladeshi people do.

Morale of the story? If you got nothing constructive to say, mind your own damn business people.

yes he's an asset but so what?why should he get preferencial treatment because he scored back to back centuries in england?mash is also an asset for our team but mash didn't get business class tickets when he went abroad before he was a captain.if the board has some policy of renumerating players for their performance then tamim will obviously get it but he doesn't need to treated like "manik roton" all the time.and just how would the other players feel when they see tamim getting privilege but they are not?this will create problems within the team and i think that we have our hands full currently and we don't need any more.and it is very important that a player is liked my his teammates because tamim plays for the bd cricket "team" and if the other players are holding a grudge against tamim,he will never be able to succeed.he might always be in the team but when he is out there in the middle,it's just him and the other batsman and it wouldn't be really nice for tamim if his partner has some issues against him

This is a bad example. Bangladesh cricket will survive, with or without Tamim as a batsman. It is after all a team game, and there is no "I" in the team.

I will partially blame BCB for this situation. They paid for so called BCB officials, MPs, to travel abroad on business class, 5 star hotels, etc. on BCB expense.

Perhaps, BCB can pass a rule saying that everyone must fly coach class, regardless of their position in the BCB, team, etc. If you don't like it, don't be associated with the BCB in any form (players, officials, etc). You are welcome to upgrade with your money. End of dicussion.

That's where you're wrong Zeeshan. Cricket is different from all the other games. A cricketer is not merely as thug swinging his club at a projectile of high velocity. (That's baseball, in case you're wondering). A cricketer is also expected to be a Gentlemen. Don't ask why, it's just what cricket is. Thus, bad boys are not quite that welcome in a cricket field. Cricket was, and still is a sport where competitiveness and aggression must be filtered through respect and etiquette.

Hence, arrogance and the so called attitude should not be the norm. Do not confuse arrogance with confidence and bad manners with doggedness.

As for the rest of your post, you're quite spot on. People need to filter out the jealousy when commenting on this particular topic. That said, nothing justifies Tamim's unprofessional petulance. He is a professional of a very noble profession and should act accordingly.

August 29, 2010, 07:08 AM
I am happy for Tamim to literally punch opponents on the face if he can get away with it ( although very unsportsmanlike). However, he should not carry an arrogant attitude off-field as it would affect his performance. He would be naive to continue doing so..with the latest incident, my biggest worry is destabilisation of the chain of command that controls our cricketers..it also can lead to other players disliking him...

You guys think it is great for his game, but you forget someone like Vettori canjust start up and down and piss him off. He lost concentration in New Zealand and ended up getting out cheaply all three times. Sometimes it will pay off, but most of the times anger won't help.

And cricket long not been a gentleman's game. This story also has nothing to do with it.

August 29, 2010, 07:46 AM
Is it possible to be a arrogant and normal/down to earth person at the same time? I think its not. An arrogant person remains an arrogant everywhere irrespective of cricket field and normal life. And imo being an arrogant causes harm in both cases. Tamim bats aggressively doesn't mean he is arrogant. Adam Gilchrist batted aggressively throughout the career and he was a down to earth person. Arrogancy cause more person harm than any benefit. Only few exceptional legends became successfull despite being arrogant. And we shouldn't judge/compare Tamim with them.

The difference between any other job and sportsmanship is that the unwritten rules are sometime more important than the written ones. From the ages of knights sportsmen are expected to uphold certain aspects of morality that one wouldn't expect a banker to uphold. It's tradition. If you ask "Why" again, than I have no answer. You just have to find the answer yourself.

[বাংলা]তামিমের যাত্রা বিরতি মালয়েশিয়া![/বাংলা]

[বাংলা]

বাংলানিউজটোয়েন্ট ফোর.কম.বিডি

ঢাকা: ভাইরাস জ্বর কাবু করে দিয়েছে তামিম ইকবালকে। দুর্বল শরীরে এখনও তাপমাত্রা স্বাভাবিকের চেয়ে বেশি। বিছানায় শুয়ে থাকলেও অস্ট্রেলিয়ায় যাওয়ার জন্য মনটা ছটফট করছে জাতীয় দলের এ ব্যাটসম্যানের।

বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড থেকে টিকিট বুকিং দেওয়া হয়েছিলো শনিবারের। মঙ্গলবার জানা গেলো বৃহস্পতিবার রাতেই অস্ট্রেলিয়ার উদ্দেশে যাত্রা করতে চান তামিম। যাত্রা করবেন বলা হচ্ছে এই কারণে মাঝে বিরতি দেবেন ট্রানজিট পয়েন্ট মালয়েশিয়াতে। নাম প্রকাশে অনিচ্ছুক বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড (বিসিবি)’র এক কর্মকর্তা বাংলানিউজটোয়েন্ট ফোর.কম.বিডিকে বলেন,“মালয়েশিয়াতে দুই দিন থেকে অস্ট্রেলিয়ায় রওয়ানা হবেন হাতের চিকিৎসা নিতে।”

মালয়েশিয়া জায়গাটা অজানা কারণে বিশেষ পছন্দ তামিমের। ছুটি পেলেই উড়াল দেন মালয়েশিয়ায়। ভ্রমণ শেষে খোশ মেজাজে ফিরে আসেন দেশে। এই তো ইংল্যান্ড সফর শেষে দেশে ফেরার পরই মালয়েশিয়াতে গিয়েছিলেন। ক্রিকেট সফরের কান্তি কাটিয়ে দেশে ফিরেই আবারো একাগ্র হয়ে উঠেন ক্রিকেট নিয়ে। সুযোগ থাকায় অস্ট্রেলিয়া যাওয়ার পথেও একটা ঢু মেরে যাচ্ছেন।

অস্ট্রেলিয়াতে তামিম ম্যাটাকার্পালের চিকিৎসা নেবেন। হাতের উঁচু হাড়টাকে দেখাবেন দুইজন চিকিৎসককে।

His doctor might have prescribed him a vacation & rest. What's the point of staying in Ctg/Dhaka. It's so tiring even for Aam public, but for them, staying home isn't rest at all. So many visitors, friends, exploiters, fans... does people allow them a rest? I'm sure that he will have a genuine rest in Mal or any destination without those upodrob.

Thats why I think they should just allow all national cricketers to fly business class its not as if BCB cannot afford it. All I know is that after the English tour especially during the lords test I was able to go into work/university and be smug as hell and say to people "did you see my team play ?" for a change!! and it was heavily due to Tamim so as long as he's fighting with his team mates or taking money from bookies I stand by him !

অপারেশন করাতে হচ্ছে তামিমকে!

অক্টোবরে নিউজিল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে পাঁচ ম্যাচের ওয়ানডে সিরিজ সম্ভবত খেলা হচ্ছে না তামিম ইকবালের। অস্ট্রেলীয় এক বিশেষজ্ঞের যে অভিমত গতকাল শুনেছেন, তাতে সবার আগে আছে অস্ত্রোপচারের পরামর্শ। আগামীকাল মেলবোর্নের গ্রেগ হোয়েও যদি একই অভিমত দেন, তাহলে একেবারে অস্ত্রোপচার করিয়েই দেশে ফিরবেন তামিম। তবে তিনি নিজে তাকিয়ে আছেন বিশেষজ্ঞ চিকিৎসক ও জাতীয় দলের ফিজিও মাইকেল হেনরির মতামতের ওপর।
বাঁ হাতের চোট অনেক দিন ধরেই ভোগাচ্ছে তামিম ইকবালকে। ইংল্যান্ডে দুই দফায় বিশেষজ্ঞের অভিমতও নেন তিনি। গতকাল সিডনিতে ডগলাস হোয়েনের কাছেও নতুন কিছু শোনেননি তামিম। অস্ট্রেলীয় এ শৈল্যবিদও নাকি বলেছেন যে এ চোট নিয়ে খেলা চালিয়ে যাওয়া সম্ভব। তবে অস্বস্তি থাকবে। অনেকটা জুতার ভেতর একটা পাথর ঢুকে থাকার মতো। তবে অস্ত্রোপচার করালে এ অস্বস্তি থাকবে না। আর অপারেশন করালে ছয় সপ্তাহ মাঠের বাইরে থাকতে হবে তাঁকে। অবশ্য এত বিস্তারিত বলতে নারাজ তামিম ইকবাল। গতকাল টেলিফোনে জানিয়েছেন, 'উনি (ডগলাস হোয়েন) আমার হাতের পাঁচটা এমআরআই রিপোর্ট নিয়েছেন। মেলবোর্নের ডক্টর ও হেনরির (জাতীয় দলের ফিজিও) সঙ্গে সেগুলো নিয়ে পর্যালোচনা করার পর তিনি চূড়ান্ত অভিমত দেবেন।' তবে এ 'অস্বস্তি' নিয়ে খেলা চালিয়ে যাওয়া কিংবা অস্ত্রোপচারের মাধ্যমে সেটি সরিয়ে ফেলা_এ দুটির একটি উপায় বাছাই করা হয়ে গেছে তামিমের, 'যেকোনো ক্রিকেটারের কাছেই তার ক্যারিয়ার সবচেয়ে ইম্পরট্যান্ট। চিকিৎসক, ফিজিও এবং বোর্ডের ওপর অনেক কিছু নির্ভর করছে। তবে আমি নিজে সবচেয়ে বেশি খুশি হব যদি অপারেশন না করিয়ে অন্য কোনোভাবে ব্যথাটা সারিয়ে ফেলা যায়।'
তা যে সম্ভব নয়, সেটি ইংল্যান্ডের পর অস্ট্রেলিয়ায়ও গিয়ে শুনছেন তামিম ইকবাল। গতকাল চিকিৎসকের চেম্বার থেকে বেরিয়েই বাংলাদেশ দলের ফিজিও ও বোর্ড-সংশ্লিষ্টদের বিষয়টি জানিয়েছেন তামিম ইকবাল। তাদেরই একটি সূত্র জানিয়েছে, '২০১১ বিশ্বকাপের আগে সেরে ওঠার জন্য পর্যাপ্ত সময় আছে। তার চেয়েও বড় কথা সামনে লম্বা ক্যারিয়ার। যদি এ অস্বস্তি কোনো একদিন ক্যারিয়ারের জন্য হুমকি হয়ে দেখা দেয়?'
সামর্থ্যের মাঝ আকাশে উড়তে থাকা ২১ বছর বয়সী তামিম ইকবালের কাছে আন্তর্জাতিক ক্যারিয়ার সবচেয়ে বেশি গুরুত্ব পাওয়াটাই স্বাভাবিক।
