Tamim Iqbal Khan (Bengali: তামিম ইকবাল খান; born 20 March 1989), more popularly known as Tamim Iqbal, is a Bangladeshi cricketer. He is currently the captain of the Bangladesh national team in One Day Internationals.[2]

Tamim made his ODI debut in 2007 and played his first Test match the following year. He served as vice-captain of the national side between December 2010 and September 2011. In March 2021, Tamim became the first Bangladeshi player to score 50 ODI half-centuries.[3] He is widely regarded as one of the greatest Bangladeshi batsmen for scoring the highest amount of runs in ODI cricket.[4]

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 Bangladeshi player to be awarded the accolade. He is the only Bangladeshi cricketer to score centuries in all three formats of the game.[5][6] Tamim is also Bangladesh's highest century maker in international matches with 25 centuries, combining all forms of cricket.[7] In July 2022, he announced his retirement from Twenty20 International cricket.[8]

Early and personal life[edit]

Tamim was born to Iqbal Khan and Nusrat Iqbal Khan, in the port city of Chittagong.[9] His paternal Khan family is a prestigious family in the city, with ancestry from Bihar.[9][10][11] His maternal family belongs to Salempur in Uttar Pradesh.[12][13] Tamim is the brother of Nafees Iqbal and the nephew of Akram Khan, who both played Test cricket for Bangladesh.[9]

Tamim's father, Iqbal, used to host small cricket tournaments to help his sons train and get better in cricket.[10] His brother Nafees, a former national team cricketer, in an interview said, "Tamim was the more talented one. When Tamim was 12 or 13, he hit 148 as the team chased 150".[10]

Tamim married Ayesha Siddiqa in June 2013 with a grand ceremony held at Chittagong. Former Prime Minister Khaleda Zia was also present at the event.[14] He had his first son named Arham on 28 February 2016. He had his first daughter named Alishba on 19 November 2019.[15]

He was recruited as a short-term replacement for Australian batsmen David Hussey, who was called up to the national squad.[17] During his stay, Tamim played five matches, scoring 104 runs with a highest score of 47.[18] Tamim, whose batting was described in the Nottingham Post as "solid if unspectacular", remarked of his performance that "It could have been better, but it wasn't too bad". Even though he was playing in a foreign country, there was pressure from the media in Bangladesh for Tamim to perform – especially when Nottinghamshire faced Worcestershire who were fielding Shakib Al Hasan – with his exploits sometimes making the front pages.[19] [20] Tamim got selected to play for Essex in the NatWest T20 blast but left the tournament for personal reasons.[21]

International career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Tamim, a young talent of Bangladesh, 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 to win the match. In December that year, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) granted Tamim a one-year grade C contract, one of 22 central contracts held by the Board at the time. Although he was still in the lowest tier of central contracts, it was an extension of his previous contract, which lasted six months.[52]

On Bangladesh's tour of the West Indies in July and August 2009, Tamim scored his maiden Test century against a West Indies team weakened by disputes between players and administrators, which resulted in seven players making their Test debuts in the match.[53] 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.[54][55] He ended up with 128, and was named as the Man of the Match for his performance (he also scored 33 in the first innings). Speaking of his innings, Tamim said "It was a flat wicket, and if you concentrate hard and look to bat straight, it's a good track to score on. I'm just 20 and have played only 11 Tests, I think there are a lot more [innings like these] to come".[56][57] Bangladesh went on to win the second Test, and in the process secured their first overseas series win.[58] Iqbal was Bangladesh's leading run-scorer in the series with 197 runs.[59]

Bangladesh's coach, Jamie Siddons, opined in January 2010 that Tamim had "the makings of a world-class opener".[60]

Wisden Cricketer of the Year[edit]

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, taking 19 to reach the landmark.[61] He also became the third-youngest player in Test history (behind Sachin Tendulkar and compatriot Mohammad Ashraful) to reach 1,000 Test runs.[62]

In May that year, Bangladesh toured England for two more Tests and three ODIs. Though his team lost 2–0, Tamim scored a century in each of the Tests.[63] For his performances against England, Tamim was named one of the Wisden Cricketers' Almanack's four Cricketers of the Year in 2011.[64] In October he was also named Wisden's Test Player of the Year, ahead of Graeme Swann and Virender Sehwag, who came second and third respectively. During the qualifying period for the award, Tamim scored 837 runs in seven Tests at an average of 59.78. It was just the second time a Bangladesh player had won the award, as Shakib Al Hasan was named the previous year.[63] At the start of November, the BCB announced 16 central contracts. Tamim was one of six players at the top level.[65]

Bangladesh vice-captain[edit]

In December 2010, Tamim replaced Mushfiqur Rahim as Bangladesh's vice-captain.[66] In the opening match of the 2011 World Cup he scored 70 against India in a losing cause. In the following match against Ireland he scored 44 off 43 balls, and took a catch. In the next game against the West Indies, Tamim was caught at the slips for a third-ball duck as Bangladesh folded for its lowest ODI score, 58 all out. The following game against England he scored a quick fire 38 to get his side off to another good start, with Bangladesh eventually winning by two wickets.

Tamim became only the second Bangladeshi to play county cricket in England (Shakib Al Hasan was the first)[16] when he signed to play for Nottinghamshire in June 2011. He was recruited as a short-term replacement for Australian batsmen David Hussey, who was called up to the national squad.[17] During his stay, Tamim played five matches, scoring 104 runs with a highest score of 47.[18] Tamim, whose batting was described in the Nottingham Post as "solid if unspectacular", remarked of his performance that "It could have been better, but it wasn't too bad". Even though he was playing in a foreign country, there was pressure from the media in Bangladesh for Tamim to perform – especially when Nottinghamshire faced Worcestershire who were fielding Shakib Al Hasan – with his exploits sometimes making the front pages.[19]

When Bangladesh toured Zimbabwe in July 2011 for a single Test and five ODIs, they did so with the expectation of winning. Zimbabwe were returning from a six-year exile from Tests, although Bangladesh had not played in the format in more than 14 months.[67] Despite claiming in a press conference that Zimbabwe's bowlers posed little threat,[68] Tamim managed 58 runs in the Test as Bangladesh slid to defeat.[69][70] Bangladesh lost the following ODI series against Zimbabwe 3–2. Bangladesh's batsmen struggled early in the series,[71][72] with Tamim managing 157 runs from five innings at an average of 31.40.[73] In the aftermath of the series, Shakib and Tamim were sacked as captain and vice-captain, with a BCB representative citing their poor leadership.[74]

Post vice-captain[edit]

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.[75] The BCB founded the six-team Bangladesh Premier League in 2012, a twenty20 tournament to be held in February that year. The BCB made Tamim the 'icon player' for Chittagong Kings.[76] However, his appearances were limited due to a groin injury and he played just two matches and scored eight runs.[77][78]

In March 2012 Bangladesh hosted the Asia Cup. Tamim, who was recovering from typhoid, was initially dropped from the squad on the orders of BCB president Mustafa Kamal. Controversy ensued as Kamal had overridden the selection committee and eventually Tamim was re-added to the squad.[79] He responded by striking four consecutive half-centuries, becoming the first Bangladesh player to achieve the feat in ODIs.[80] Bangladesh progressed to the final against all expectations, although they lost to Pakistan by 2 runs.[81][82] Later that month Tamim signed with Pune Warriors in the Indian Premier League,[83] but did not play a single match for the team.[84] In April his top-level central contract with the BCB was renewed.[85]

In late 2012 Bangladesh hosted West Indies, where Bangladesh won the ODI series, despite losing the T20 and the Test series. His highest score during the ODI and Test series was 58 and 72 respectively. Tamim's best performance in the overall series was the unbeaten 88 in the lone T20 match, despite losing the match for 18 runs short.[86]

Post World Cup 2015[edit]

After the 2015 Cricket World Cup, Bangladesh played a home series against Pakistan. Tamim played a superb ODI series against Pakistan, where he scored two back-to-back match-winning centuries. Eventually, Bangladesh white-washed Pakistan for the first time in an ODI series and Tamim was named as the Man of the series.[87]

2016 and beyond[edit]

Tamim was the highest run scorer at the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 held in India. This included an unbeaten 103* against Oman in the group stages of the tournament. He became the first Bangladesh cricketer to score an international T20I hundred whilst also surpassing the previous high score of 88* (also held by him). This subsequently helped Bangladesh qualify for the Super 10 stage. Tamim also led the highest number of 6's hit chart at the tournament.

In August 2016, Tamim sustained a fracture on the little finger, which ruled him out from competitive cricket for around three weeks. This means that he could be uncertain for selection for the ODIs against Afghanistan.[88] but he was selected for ODIs and scored 80 and 118 in the first and third ODIs against Afghanistan.

During the first ODI against Sri Lanka on 26 March 2017, Tamim became the first Bangladeshi to score 10,000 international runs.[6]

2017 Champions Trophy[edit]

Preparing for the 2017 Champions Trophy, Iqbal scored a hundred against Pakistan in a warm-up game at Edgbaston in Birmingham.[89] Playing against England in the first of the league games at The Oval, he scored 128 off 142 balls taking the team's total to 305, which was later chased down by the latter.[90] He scored 95 off 114 balls in the next game against Australia, a match that ended without result.[91] In the semi-final against India, he scored 70 off 82 balls in a losing cause, finishing the tournament with 293 runs.[92] He was also named as part of the 'Team of the Tournament' at the 2017 Champions Trophy by the ICC[93] and Cricinfo.[94]

In August 2017, he was named in a World XI side to play three Twenty20 International matches against Pakistan in the 2017 Independence Cup in Lahore.[95]

2018[edit]

On 23 January 2018 against Zimbabwe, Tamim became the first batsman for Bangladesh to reach 6,000 runs in ODIs.[96] During this innings, Tamim also went past Sri Lankan legend Sanath Jayasuriya's 2,514 runs at the R. Premadasa Stadium to become highest run-scorer at a single venue in ODIs.[97]

In April 2018, he was one of ten cricketers to be awarded a central contract by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) ahead of the 2018 season.[98] In the same month, he was named in the Rest of the World XI squad for the one-off T20I against the West Indies, to be played at Lord's on 31 May 2018.[99]

In July 2018, Tamim scored 287 runs with an average of 143.5 in a three-match series against West Indies and became the man of the series for the 4th time in ODI career, which was the second highest for a Bangladeshi player in ODI after Shakib Al Hasan. He jumped to the 13th position in ICC ODI Batsman Ranking with a career highest rating point of 737.[100]

2019 Cricket World Cup and beyond[edit]

In April 2019, he was named in Bangladesh's squad for the 2019 Cricket World Cup.[101][102] On 2 July 2019, in the match against India, Tamim played in his 200th ODI.[103]

In July 2019, Bangladesh's regular captain Mashrafe Mortaza was ruled out of the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka due to a hamstring injury.[104] Tamim was named as captain for the first time in ODIs.[105] Prior to that he had only led Bangladesh in one Test match in 2017 against New Zealand.[106]

2020[edit]

In March 2020, when Zimbabwe toured Bangladesh, he scored 158 runs off 136 balls in the 2nd ODI, highest individual score by any Bangladeshi batsman also second Bangladeshi batsman scored a century at Sylhet and he became the first Bangladeshi batsman to score 7,000 runs in ODIs.[107] In the 3rd ODI, He scored 128 runs off 109 balls and made a partnership of 292 runs with Litton Das in the opening wicket which is the highest partnership for Bangladesh for any wicket in ODIs.[108]

In May 2021, Sri Lanka toured Bangladesh for 3-match ODI series. Bangladesh won the first two matches and lost the third match and eventually won the ODI series by 2–1. It was Bangladesh's first bilateral series win against Sri Lanka.[114]
