Shakib al Hasan blames BCB chief for rift with Tamim Iqbal

This thing [the relationship between Tamim and Shakib] came to focus after Papon [Nazmul Hasan] bhai spoke about it and it created a lot of problem on the relationship and created this situation. I think some people had the intention to keep it [the rift] in focus and tried to make it as the main point [of discussion] rather than the cricketing side,” Shakib was quoted as saying in the documentary broadcasted by Bongo.

“For quite some time, we were not talking a lot. [But] it’s not right that we were not on talking terms. The thing is, there was a time when we used to be together all the time but that relationship was not there for quite some time. It’s very natural. Both of us got married, we were staying separately in different places and so, there was very less time between us,” added Shakib.
