Bangladesh’s dashing left hand opening batsman Tamim Iqbal has been in terrific form, and delivering the goods for his team Peshawar Zalmi in the first edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) at Sharjah and Dubai.
He is the second highest run-getter in the tournament, with 267 runs in six matches. He has struck three 50s with 80 not out being his personal best. Tamim has also won the man of the match award twice for his brilliant batting top of the order.
Shahid Afridi, captain of Peshawar Zalmi couldn’t have asked for anything better, since Tamim and Hafeez have given solid starts more often than not. No wonder Boom Boom’s daughters Ansha and Aqsa wanted to take a snap with Bangladesh’s highest run-maker in Tests and ODIs after Peshawar won their match handsomely at the Sharjah stadium.
With knocks of 30, 80*, 37, 14, 55* and 51, Tamim Iqbal is going through a purple patch in T20 cricket, something Bangladesh fans would sincerely want to see continue during the ICC T20I World Cup 2016 in India in March.
