Bangladeshi cricketer Tamim Iqbal Khan does not tire of setting new records and raising the stakes of Bangladesh cricket. Just to name a few, the left handed opening batsman was named as one of Wisden Cricketers' Almanack's four Cricketers of the Year and Wisden's Test Player of the Year in 2011, becoming just the second Bangladesh player to be awarded this honour. Tamim made a debut to a long and illustrious career to ODI cricket in 2007 and played his first Test the following year. His list of achievements also includes his vice-captaincy of the national side between December 2010 and September 2011. In 2011, he played first-class cricket for Chittagong Division cricket team. As an international elite player for the inaugural Caribbean Premier League in 2013, he has made his mark as well. In July 2014, he played for the Rest of the World side in the Bicentenary Celebration match at Lord's. After the 2015 ICC 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 tournament. He further helped Bangladesh win first ever series against India and also a series win against South Africa. He scored an unbeaten 61 in the last ODI to help the team win the series 2-1. Tamim has been prolific as a batsman and in the 2016 T20 World Cup, he was the highest run getter in the entire tournament. He is the highest run getter for Bangladesh as well.
