The resulting adulation for the 20-year-old turned to scorn from women’s rights activists and feminists.

However conservative patriarchal attitudes remain widespread in the majority Muslim country.

In another post, Tanzim warned men that their sons would not have a “modest” mother. If they married “a woman accustomed to free mixing with her male friends in a university”.

The comments provoked a backlash, with Paris-based feminist writer Jannatun Nayeem Prity pointing out. The Bangladesh team jerseys were made in factories staffed mainly by women.

“I feel sorry for you that you don’t consider your mother a normal human being,” she added.

Writer Swakrito Noman described the comments as “deeply offensive” in a widely-shared Facebook post, demanding the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) question Tanzim and the player apologize.

Women form the vast majority of the workforce of garment factories. That has driven much of Bangladesh’s economic growth in recent years.

Journalist Mejbaul Haque added Monday: “The status of such a distorted form of misogyny is unacceptable. No matter how big a star he is!”

The BCB said it was investigating.

“The issue came to our attention. We are looking into the matter,” its cricket operations chief Jalal Yunus told AFP.

Tanzim has played 12 first-class matches in his short senior career, after helping Bangladesh win the Under-19 World Cup in 2020.
