ICC Cricket World Cup 2015

Will Tamim spark again?

Star Online Report

Whenever India plays Bangladesh, one name they remember not so fondly is Tamim Iqbal. Who can forget Tamim’s blazing start in the 2007 World Cup match when he took on the likes of Zaheer Khan and Ajit Agarkar and left them utterly humiliated before the stunned Indian crowd at Port of Spain. Yes, that memory still haunts the Indian psyche, especially because that match resulted in India’s inglorious exit from 2007 world cup.

Beware India! That fifty was not a flash in the pan as Tamim took on the Indian bowlers during the 4th match of the Asia Cup in 2012 and paved the way for Bangladesh’s unforgettable victory. Bangladesh chased down India’s 289 at Mirpur thanks to Tamim’s heroics once Again.

Just to drive home the point, Tamim’s record against India is truly one-sided as the Chittagonian southpaw averages over thirty three and has five fifties to his name.
