Fortune Barishal, a prominent franchise in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), made an official announcement appointing Tamim Iqbal, the captain of Bangladesh’s One Day International (ODI) team, as their leader for the upcoming season.

Before the start of the last BPL season, franchisees signed a three-year contract with the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB. Due to cricket’s unpredictable nature, some surprising changes were made with Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan, two of Bangladesh’s cricketing superstars, who switched teams before the contractual year’s completion.

Shakib Al Hasan’s Departure and Tamim Iqbal’s Arrival

Shakib Al Hasan captained Fortune Barishal in the previous season and under his leadership, the team reached the qualifying stage. Unfortunately, news emerged that Shakib decided to leave the franchise before the year concluded, leaving a void in the captaincy position.

Fortune Barishal swiftly filled the captaincy position by signing Tamim Iqbal on a one-year contract earlier this month. The franchise officially announced Tamim as the team’s captain on a post through their Facebook page, generating excitement among fans and pundits. This is setting the stage for an intense and action-packed season under his leadership. Alongside Tamim, the franchise also secures the services of Pakistan’s talented opener, Fakhar Zaman, ahead of the player draft.

Notably, Tamim Iqbal had previously represented Fortune Barishal in the T20 tournament organized by the BCB in 2020. As an experienced opener, his familiarity with the franchise and the local conditions would be beneficial to the team. With Tamim Iqbal at the helm, Fortune Barishal’s management and fans have high expectations from their captain. His leadership acumen and batting prowess will play a crucial role in shaping the team’s fortunes in the upcoming BPL season.
