2019 Cricket WC Top 10 Run Scorer Batsman Prediction

Go to full list

#6. Tamim Iqbal

When the world talks about the sub-continental openers, they talk about the aggression factor. Virender Sehwag, Sanath Jayasuriya and Sachin Tendulkar have ruthlessly destroyed the bowling over the years. However, an opener from Bangladesh soon joined that list and made the world take notice. Tamim Iqbal was chosen in the Bangladesh team for the 2007 World Cup after playing just two matches against Zimbabwe. Against India, they were chasing a low score in tricky conditions. With the experienced Zaheer Khan bowling, it would have made sense for someone inexperienced to show respect and play him with caution. Tamim chose to disregard those factors and launched into the Indian bowling with brutal aggression. His six over deep mid wicket after skipping down the track to Zaheer was among the shots of the 2007 World Cup and ever since that knock, he hasn't looked back. He has been a little inconsistent in ODIs, but his Test form has been remarkable. He started off his Test debut in style by scoring a pair of fifties against New Zealand in Dunedin in 2008. He scored his maiden Test century against the West Indies in 2009 at Kingstown to help Bangladesh record their first overseas test win. He smashed 151 against India at Dhaka, but it was the England bowling that he relished the most. In six Test innings against them, he has five scores of over fifty. His memorable moment came on the tour to England, when he got his name on the honours board at Lord’s by becoming the first Bangladeshi player to score a century. He scored another ton at Old Trafford to cap off a wonderful summer. His performances in that tour led to Wisden naming him as the Cricketer of the year in 2011. He is currently the second Bangladeshi to play for an English county when he joined Nottinghamshire. In March 2013, Bangladesh went to Sri Lanka, but Tamim was not selected for the first Test. But in the second Test he made 10 and 59 respectively. In the first ODI, Tamim became the first Bangladeshi to score a hundred against Sri Lanka, when he scored 112 off 136 balls. When Sri Lanka toured Bangladesh in February 2014, he had a quiet series and didn't play in the ODIs due to a neck sprain. Tamim came back into the squad for 2014 Asia Cup and World T20 but failed to score the runs which his team required. In July 2014, he was a part of the Rest of the World side in the Bicentenary Celebration match at Lord's. After a decent series against Zimbabwe in Nov-Dec 2014, Tamim was diagnosed as a grade one tear on his left knee. He underwent a surgery in Australia and recovered in time before the 2015 World Cup. However, he didn't have a great tournament as he managed just 154 runs in six innings, with a best score of 95 against Scotland which provided the platform to chase down a target of 319. He bounced back strongly against a visiting Pakistan team after the 2015 World Cup. With scores of 132, 116 and 64 in the three match ODI series, he was the Man of the Series and played an instrumental role in whitewashing Pakistan for the first time. He continued his good work in the Tests too, notching up a double century in Khulna in the second innings which helped Bangladesh secure a draw for the first time against Pakistan in Tests. He was also a key member of the Bangladesh set-up that tasted series victories against India and South Africa in the same year. Against Zimbabwe, he scored 132 runs in three games, thereby winning all the four bilateral ODI series at home in 2015. Barring his fifty in the first innings of the first Test against New Zealand, Tamim didn’t contribute substantially early in the year 2017. However, he regained his touch in Sri Lanka, where he scored 207 runs in two matches. He received the Man of the Match in Bangladesh’s 100th Test match for his matured 82 in the second innings that saw Bangladesh chase down a target of 191. He continued his good form by notching up his eighth ton in the 50-over format that blew away Sri Lanka in the first ODI. Tamim continued to churn in runs in the tri-series featuring Ireland and New Zealand where he amassed 199 runs at an average around 66. He set the Champions Trophy in England ablaze with a scintillating 128 in the tournament opener and followed it up with scores of 95 0 and 70. Although Bangladesh lost to India in the quarter-finals, they surpassed expectations of many by knocking both Antipodean nations out of the tournament. 2016 - 2017 - a season that saw Bangladesh rise in Test cricket. Test wins against Sri Lanka, England and Australia. All of those wouldn't have been possible sans the supremacy of senior players. And most importantly Tamim Iqbal, the vital cog of Bangladesh's batting for over a decade.
