Tamim Iqbal: Bangladesh's Cricket Star

Top Online Casino And Sports Betting

Tamim Iqbal, the formidable opener, has left an indelible mark on Bangladesh cricket, dominating almost all batting records for his country.

– 8313 runs scored by Tamim Iqbal in ODI cricket, cementing his status as the sole player with 8000-plus runs for Bangladesh in this format. His impressive tally of 14 ODI centuries is also unmatched, with no other player even reaching the ten-century mark.

1. Tamim bids farewell as the highest run-scorer for Bangladesh in international cricket, amassing a remarkable total of 15,148 runs. Moreover, his 25 centuries across all formats set a new record for Bangladesh, surpassing any other player.

– 62.83 is Tamim’s outstanding batting average in ODI cricket from April 2015 to December 2018. This places him fourth among batters with 1000-plus runs during that period, trailing only Virat Kohli (83.97), Ross Taylor (67.61), and Rohit Sharma (66.00). Tamim accumulated 2325 runs during this 45-month span, including seven centuries in 44 innings.

1. Tamim stands as the only Bangladesh player to achieve a century in men’s T20Is. He displayed his brilliance with an unbeaten 103 off 63 balls against Oman during the 2016 T20 World Cup in Dharamsala.

– 6 elite men have achieved the rare feat of scoring a double-century in Test cricket, a 150 in ODIs, and a hundred in T20Is, and Tamim is among them. Initially, only Chris Gayle and Brendon McCullum accomplished this milestone before Tamim joined the exclusive list in 2016. Subsequently, Rohit Sharma, David Warner, and Virat Kohli also earned their places in this prestigious group.

– Tamim amassed an impressive total of 5134 Test runs, the second-most for Bangladesh, only behind Mushfiqur Rahim’s 5553. He held the title of the highest Test run-scorer for Bangladesh between 2015 and 2020 before Mushfiqur surpassed him. Although Tamim briefly reclaimed the top spot during the home series against Sri Lanka last year, Mushfiqur quickly reclaimed his position after a couple of hours.

– Tamim’s highest Test score is an exceptional 206 runs, achieved against Pakistan in Khulna in 2015. Notably, he formed a record-breaking opening partnership of 312 runs with Imrul Kayes, the highest for any team in their second innings.

– Tamim has opened the batting in an astounding 450 out of 451 innings. The only instance where he didn’t open was in the first innings of the Potchefstroom Test against South Africa in 2017. Due to being off the field for most of the session, he batted at No. 5 in Bangladesh’s innings.
