Tamim Iqbal was already one of Bangladesh’s most assured batsmen at the time of his 21st birthday, and will be a vital component at the top of the order for years to come. His promise was apparent when, batting for the Under-19s against England at the end of 2005, he smashed 112 from just 71 balls to help Bangladesh cruise to victory. The left-hander is regarded as one of the most exciting prospects in Bangladesh cricket and is arguably the hardest hitter of the cricket ball in the country. His elegance and style through the off side is a treat to watch but his trademark shot is the straight drive, capped with a text-book like follow-through.
He plays first-class cricket for Chittagong Division cricket team in BPL and Peshawar Zalmi in PSL. Tamim Iqbal is the brother of Nafees Iqbal and the nephew of Akram Khan, who both played Test cricket for Bangladesh.He is currently the highest run-scorer for Bangladesh in Test cricket and T20 internationals. He is the second Bangladeshi cricketer to score 4,000 runs in ODIs.
