Tamim Iqbal has been one of Bangladesh’s biggest players over the last decade and has played a very important role in their rise in recent times. At the top of the order, he has been a consistent source of runs for them and is their highest run-scorer of all time in all three formats.

In 78 T20Is, he has scored 1758 runs at an average of 24.08 and strikes at just below 117. In general, he has 6173 runs to his name in 218 T20s at a strike rate of 119.16 while averaging more than 31. He has also scored 3 centuries.

While he is a pretty good run-scorer, he can be a bit too slow and franchises usually expect their overseas batsmen to be explosive and this might have held back teams from bidding for the Bangladeshi.
