Bangladesh cricketer Tamim Iqbal retires from T20 Internationals; it’s a great news

Bangladesh One Day International (ODI) cricket team captain Tamim Iqbal has finally said goodbye to T20 cricket. He announced this decision at the end of the ODI series against Windies on Sunday, July 17, 2022 (Guyana date: Saturday, July 16, 2022). It is one of the great news about the Bangladesh national cricket team to me. It is just the end of a drama, I think. But the team and the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) should be grateful to him for what he has done for them till 2020.

Tamim Iqbal has been away from the shortest format of cricket for a long time. He did not play in the World Cup held in the United Arab Emirates last year.

In January, Tamim took a six-month long break from T20Is. This star opener suddenly announced the break from international T20 during the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) on January 27, 2022. The duration of that break was six months. The break was supposed to end on July 27, 2022.

There was a rumor spread just before the West Indies tour on social media that Tamim Iqbal wanted to play in the ICC T20 World Cup but the board did not consider him. I have a blog post on that rumor (or fact); The headline was that post is— Tamim Iqbal, the only centurion in T20Is, wants to be back on the T20I team; will BCB allow him a chance?

Tamim Iqbal has announced his retirement from T20I on his Facebook page; he wrote, “Consider me retired from T-20 international from today. Thanks everyone.”

I wish Tamim Iqbal Khan good luck for his future.

Bangladesh ODI captain Tamim did not participate in the ongoing T20 series in the West Indies as he was on leave from this format. BCB president Nazmul Hassan Papon had already informed that if he does not play T20 on the tour of Windies, he will not get a chance in the T20 World Cup team to be held in Australia in October. He announced his retirement amid extreme uncertainty about his T20 career.

Tamim Iqbal played his last match in T20I against Zimbabwe in 2020. Tamim made his T20 debut in 2007 against Kenya.

Tamim Iqbal has scored 1,758 runs with 1 century and 7 half-centuries in 78 international T20 matches. The star cricketer scored a career-high 103* against Oman in the first round of the 2016 T20 World Cup.
