Tamim Iqbal Khan – God’s Blessings to Bangladesh.

Prior to his debut in World Cup One dayer against India Tamim showed his batting class when Shane Bond was treated with disdain in a practice game against Newzealand which Bangladesh incidentally won.

Then came the moment of truth when Tamim Iqbal blasted his way to a magical 51 in 53 mts against India that subsequently knocked them out of the tournament.

The cricketing world was wonderstruck by breathtaking stroke play all round the wicket from a boy only 18 years against the might of Indian bowlers- Zaheer Khan, Munaf Patel nobody was spared. One got the feeling Dravid and his pace attack were clueless as to what was happening.

One of key qualities of Tamim is his innate ability to dominate bowlers and unsettle them with his brave – Who cares the Big Names approach.

It goes to Jamie Siddons’ credit that he was able to hone Tammim’s skills with regard to better shot selection , grafting and staying in the wicket for a longer period.

Thus we now see a more mature Tamim . His batting figures speaks for itself.

Tamim has three additional qualities that makes him an asset to Bangladesh :

He is one of the very few Bangladesh batsmen who has been consistent in terms of batting.

Tamim has been rock solid and showed his class against all other cricketing nations that Bangladesh recently played - Sri lanka, Newzealand, South Africa and Pakistan.

Tamim is also an outstanding fielder that adds his value to the team and has taken some blinders.

Another non cricketing attribute is his ability to speak fluently and with confidence with the media which will help Bangladesh if they decide to groom him as a future captain (maybe 5 plus years from now}.

With this edition I would like to share some magic moments of Tamim on his prowess in batting, ability to smash sixes at will, Outstanding fielding ,the famous sledging incident involving Munaf Patel and last but not the least a popular cricket song which I am sure all of you already know.

Tamim’s Knock out Punch of India.

Here’s the link :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGxLqgbNWN8

Tamim’s Famous Sixer against Zaheer Khan.

We all know about Javed Miandad’s famous last ball sixer against Chetan Sharma.
against India long time ago.

But this one from Tamim only 18 years of age at that time against a seasoned campaigner Zaheer Khan will also long be remembered .

Here’s the link :
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nI_wY123oJ8

Tamim’s Stunning Catch .

Tamim as I mentioned earlier is one of the few brilliant fielders who has brought about many breathtaking catches.

Here is one of them.

I can assure you readers this one is no less than of the class of the incomparable Johnty Rhodes or Mohammad Kaif. What do you think readers ?

Here’s the Link :
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8g17BB2NG-g

Tamim’s Super Six and Its After Effect – Sledging.

Such was the beating from Tamim’s bat during his great knock against India in the world cup One dayer that one of their key bowlers Munaf Patel could not check his emotions after being hit for a blistering six that he resorted to sledging.

Watch the actions of our young Tiger Tamim against the might of Munaf Patel.

It is a pity that we were not able to hear what was said as we could only watch physical actions between the opposing players or did the media deliberately suppress the audio part.. It is anybody’s guess. Readers have your own interpretations.

Here’s the Link::

I hope you all enjoyed this edition of Magic Moments.

Last But not the Least a Cricket Song to Finish Off.

Before ending I would like to finish with a song - a cricketing one, a popular number which I am sure all of you know it already.

Let us all sing together once more as the video unfolds.

Here’s the Link::

now and never!
as a captain there is a lot of responsibilities in your shoulders...n it becomes hard to control everything..
I rather like him as what he is....
he has a bright future ...n does better as a batsman n a feilder....
let sakib or mushfiq be the future captain...

Hello Prantika,

Welcome back!

You may be right. Sometimes the added responsibility of captaincy to a consistent performer may adversely affect his individual performance.

Example: Despite being a champion batsman Tendulkar flopped as a Captain and ultimately removed.

Our existing Captain - You can't have a better example. However I have reservations against Ash. His captaincy and performance took a nose dive under Siddons. If he had a Coach of the likes of Dav- non interfering with regards to a player’s set batting style and a highly motivational Tactician who knows Ash's Career Graph as a Captain and Player might have been different. This is off course and If. We have to stick to present reality which is rock bottom for Ash. I being a strong Ash fan like many others is shell shocked and sad about it. I may dare say now only a miracle can save him.

I have a gut feeling in the future Saqib will be made the captain say 2 to 3 years from now and Mushfiq or Tamim will be groomed for the Vice captain depending on their performance and consistency.

The great thing I notice in Tamim is his Confidence personified in all his expressions a La Vivian Richards Style - It seems to say I am the boss, I am the man in control - You opposition guys are school kids. I will treat you with disdain. Watch out!

Again my gut feeling is that 5 years from now if he maintains his fitness and form he is a sure shot. Take my word. This is off course my opinion. So No offense Prantika.

Thanks a lot for sharing your views.

Take care.

Cheers!

Hello Nawreen,

Warm welcome to you.

Don't worry Tamim is not going to be made captain before 5 years.

As you can see and it is a fact he has 4 qualites that is essential to be a good Captain.

Confidence - When he walks out to bat and nonchalantly goes after the attack without any fear half of the battle is won.

Second consistent peformer. His batting statistics speaks for itself.

One of the few Bd players who can boast of being an outstanding fieldsman.

Last but not the least very fluent and confident when dealing with media. In fact better than either Saqib or Rahim if you have seen any of his interviews.

Leadership qualities will come with experience. But I have a feeling he has a good understanding of the game.

I would say a perfect candidate for a Future Captain 5 years from now. Take my word.

Thanks for sharing your views.

Take care.

All the best!

Cheers!

Thank you sohel bhai. Although, I must say that you too have invented some new names. Nevertheless, its not about pointing out your hypocrisy, rather it is about preventing a new lame nick which will make some of the Indian sitcoms actually worth watching.

Sharp enough and point taken Tonoy ... :)

Anyway, what's so cryptic about "Tam-mim" as opposed to "Tamim" ? What I am I missing here ?

Indians SC's actually worth watching without being under the influence of something, green or any other color ? Now that would be a cold day in hell or the day I vote Republican or BAL/BNP/JIB/BJP, take your pick, or support Pakistan in anything.

Hello Sohel Bhaiyya,

Your are absolutely right. It is Tamim and not Tammim. It was not a slip of writing .It was a spelling error.

Thanks for pointing out.

This is the advantage of feedback.

I also reconfirmed as a double check from Wikipedia which I am reproducing here :

Tamim Iqbal
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tamim Iqbal Khan (Bengali: তামিম ইকবাল খান) (b. 20 March 1989) in Chittagong.

I have also corrected the spelling on my thread and a couple of posting replies related to this thread.

I appreciate your observation.

Cheers!

I like the magic moments. I hope to see more of these magic from Tamim in the up coming series and all the other games he plays. i hope he finishes his career as not only the best batsmen of BD, but i would like to see him ranked as one of the top 10 batsmen in the world. ( if that's possible for a BD player)

Welcome back Antora.

You can rest assured that It is a matter of time when Tamim will be amongst the top 10 in the world.

If we take Wikipedia info as authentic:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tamim Iqbal Khan (Bengali: তামিম ইকবাল খান) (b. 20 March 1989) in Chittagong.

he is still 19 a teenage Bangladesh Cricket Phenomenon.

He has many many years of cricket left in him. So we as BD fans are lucky in that respect.

I thought IPL management was very unfair in not calling Tamim to play there especially when he was consistently performing. If he got the opportunity he would have been an instant hit.

We are anxiously waiting to see a flurry of Tamim magic in the forthcoming triangular contest.

All the best to Tamim and Tamim fans.

Cheers!

Welcome Shobha and a warm one.

I appreciate your feedback.

Let’s see what the following authentic sources : Cricinfo.com, Cricketnext.com, Wikipedia has Tamim’s Date of birth.

Source : Cricinfo.com.
Tamim Iqbal
Bangladesh
Player profile
Full name Tamim Iqbal Khan
Born March 20, 1989, Chittagong

Full name:Tamim Iqbal Khan

Tamim Iqbal Khan (Bengali: তামিম ইকবাল খান) (b. 20 March 1989) in Chittagong.

The India Bangladesh One day match was held on March 17 2007.

On the above basis Tamim’s age works out to be 17 years 362 days app 18 years.

It was on the above basis that I have mentioned Tamim’ age as 18 .

Having said that your observation is also correct as he was 17 years 362 days on March 17, 200 .

I appreciate your feedback and appreciation.

All the best!

Hello Sohel Bhaiyya,

Thanks for your acknowledgement and appreciation.

I have become a great fan of yours ever since you posted ‘ Junayed Siddique: The Next Superstar of BD Cricket ‘ back in August 8, 2007.

The write up on Junaed was super stuff.

I remember I saved it in one of my cricket folders at that time.

It was a great piece of write up highlighting on specific areas .

How true your prediction came when Junaed responded with a master class innings on his debut aganist Pakistan in a 20 20 one dayer.

That Innings along with Ash’s 87 against South Africa and Tamim’s 50 + are magic moments that I relive every Sunday at my home . Not just the highlights but the entire innings.

I also like your distinct style, choice of words and your innovativeness.

You are one of the few readers with intellectual insights. In that respect you are an asset for Banglacricket Forum and for us.

Cheers!

Hello bdchamp20 Bhaiyya,

I have all those matches in full. In fact I have the DVD of all Bangladesh matches in last World cup one day and 20 - 20 as well.

Labelled DVD's of World cup one day costs $8.00 (CDN DOLLARS) of 7 hours duration which is very cheap- One Source.

Non labelled wthout Man of the Match portion is $6.00 (CDN DOLLARS).This source is not dependable as I found the recording is not always complete.

When I have parties at my home one of the thing I do is to squeeze 1 to 2 hrs for guests to enjoy the magic moments.

The Bhabis curse me for taking away the Bhaiyyas. But all the Bhaiyya invitees are cricket lovers like myself.They enjoy every bit and compliment by saying 'POISHA USHUL'.

I compensate the Bhabis by watching Oscar movies together- My collections of these is not bad either but not to the extent of cricket.

Cheers!

Hello cricket_king Bhaiyya,

You are spot on when you say ‘The Tamim threads are being reeled in now ‘. However if you notice carefully the threads are being pumped in for good and valid reasons as I perceive and explained below.

First and foremost in terms of current threads on Tamim, mine is older in terms of posting date. Check out the dates of current threads on Tamim. However if you notice the two threads - they are totally different on material contents and scope. Mine is Tamim’s performance based while that of Sohel Bhaiyya’s is profile based. ( Sohel Bhaiyya did a good piece of work on his Tamim profile.)

So from Readers point of view they are getting a taste of both.

Secondly Tamim is a Hot item based on his current dazzling form and consistency. He deserves multiple threads. Doesn’t he?

I won’t be surprised if we see more of Tamim threads opened from other readers on other distinct aspects of Tamim.

It appears from his popularity and justified too that Tamim is a super star in the making and I am sure he will reach that in no time and while that happens we will be in for a flurry of Threads to portray the Teenage batting sensation.

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

After the 20/20 World cup, Tamim was being written off here by our forum friends. I always thought that he had that inherent trait of being a superb batsman even though I did admit that he was a bit comical in that series, but I shrugged it off as the giddy moments of youth. I have watched him bat and he is very exciting to watch once he gets going, and I feel that now he has turned that corner where we will see a sensible Tamim. I was in Guyana to watch the SA match, and he did bat well there, also Aftab and Mash, but the star was the pocket sized Ashraful who just demonstrated that he had perfected the scoop shot. those shots had the crowd swooning, the drummers were in full swing and there was a carnival like atmosphere.
At this point we never thought that Bangladesh would beat the NO1 team in the world with style, one had to be present there to soak up the joy because Bangladesh was fully supported by the Guyanese crowd who fell in love with this team, especially Ash.
If you ask any Guyanese to name one Bangladeshi cricketer, it is always Ashraful.
