Tamim Iqbal Biography

Tamim Iqbal Khan is a Bangladeshi cricketer. Tamim made his One Day International debut in 2007 and played his first Test the following year. He is left-handed opening batsman. Tamim, who played in the 2006 U-19 Cricket World Cup in Sri Lanka, was picked for the 2007 World Cup and played against India in the group stage of the competition, scoring 51 runs from 53 deliveries, helping his team win the match. In December that year, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) granted Tamim a one-year grade C contract. On Bangladesh's tour of the West Indies in July and August 2009, Tamim scored his maiden Test century against a West Indies team. His effort with the bat helped Bangladesh to a historic victory – their first against the West Indies in Tests, their first overseas Test victory and only their second Test win. He ended up with 128, and was named as the Man of the Match for his performance (he also scored 33 in the first innnings). Bangladesh went on to win the second Test, and in the process secured their first overseas series win. During the first innings of the first Test against England in March 2010, Tamim scored 86 runs from 120 deliveries. In the process he became the fastest Bangladesh batsman to reach 1,000 Test runs in terms of innings. He also became the third-youngest player in Test history to reach 1,000 Test runs. In December 2010, Tamim replaced Mushfiqur Rahim as Bangladesh's vice-captain. West Indies toured in October, facing Bangladesh in a T20I, three ODIs and two Tests. Though Bangladesh lost the Test series 1–0, Tamim was his team's leading run-scorer with 186 from four innings, including two half-centuries. In 2011 he was named as one of Wisden Cricketers' Almanack's four Cricketers of the Year, and Wisden's Test Player of the Year, becoming just the second Bangladesh player to be awarded the accolade. He plays first-class cricket for Chittagong Division cricket team.
