Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal has termed themselves favourite against Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe ahead of the tri-nation series next month.

The Tigers are currently practising at Mirpur Academy Ground in Dhaka. Tamim joined the national camp Sunday after enjoying a much needed break following a busy schedule comprising both international and domestic fixtures.

“I believe it will be a fascinating contest in the upcoming tri-series. Sri Lanka are a very dangerous side. And Zimbabwe can beat anyone on their day. But Bangladesh are playing at their home ground. The way we, the Bangladesh team, are performing in the home condition in the last three years, if we consider that, then definitely we can labelled as favourite in the series,” Tamim said to the media after training.

“Definitely we are expecting to win the tournament. We haven’t played that many tri-series. But we played one final once. So it’s a good chance for us. We know our opponent well, just the way they know us. We know their strength and weakness. So it will be a good contest.

“We have plenty of scheduled practice sessions before the tournaments starts. Hopefully we will prepare ourselves well ahead of our first series in the new year,” he added.

The three-nation tournament will start January 15 with host Bangladesh taking on Zimbabwe in a day-night encounter at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.
