'Unpredictable' wicket gives Tamim hope

Dashing opener Tamim Iqbal today said the wicket is very unpredictable and anything can happen and they have to really bowl well against Australia. "We had a chance to increase lead over 300 which would have been good for us ... now we have to keep patient and bowl well at the right place.. it will be more better for us if we able to take two more wickets early on the fourth day," said Tamim at a post match press conference held on Tuesday at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium at Mirpur. 

The thing which we will have to do first tomorrow is to deliver ball in right place not for taking wicket .. for dot ball . If we able to create pressure on them wicket will come. The two Australian best batsmen now in the crease and if we able to take one wicket of them as early as possible then what happen you never know, said Tamim to a questioner.

Replying to a question he said, Soumya's catch was very difficult, but if we had taken catches of Smith and Warner, we would be in far more better position. 

The left handed batsman said tomorrow is fresh day and we will try to make their task hard as they still need 156 runs and one wicket early will make the match reopen.

Asked to commenting about his out on the day, the dashing opener said "No question should be raised about my out as the way I threw my wicket ... It would have been pleasing for me if I got my century ..... I batted in a discipline way and worked hard I should have completed my century, but in this wicket nothing is certain."
