Bangladesh batsman Tamim Iqbal beat competition from established stars such as Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Jacques Kallis to be named the Wisden Cricketer magazine's 'World Test Player of the Year'.
Tamim heads a field of exceptional performers, beating England offspinner Graeme Swann into second place and Sehwag into third.
The accolade completes a remarkable double success for Bangladesh which has now produced successive Test Players of the Year, with former captain Shakib-Al-Hassan taking the award in 2009.
Tamim scored 837 runs at 59.78 in seven Tests during 2010, despite his team failing to win a single one of them during the year.
"Batting with a bulldozer mentality that drew rightful comparisons with the mighty Virender Sehwag, Tamim took the attitude that all bowlers were there to be destroyed, irrespective of method or reputation. Though his highest score of 151 came against India at Dhaka back in January, his finest performances were reserved for an England attack that put all other opponents in their pockets during a remarkable and unbeaten 18 months," the magazine wrote in its citation for the batsman.

Players/Officials: Shakib Al Hasan | Tamim Iqbal
Teams: Bangladesh

Tamim Iqbal, Bangladesh's talismanic opener, has been named Test Player of the Year by the Wisden Cricketer magazine.

On the day his team-mates recorded Bangladesh's first series win against top-flight opposition - by beating New Zealand - Tamim beat contenders Graeme Swann and Virender Sehwag, who came second and third.

During the qualifying period Tamim made 837 runs at 59.78 in seven Tests, despite his team failing to win a single Test during the year. He made 151 against India at Dhaka back in January but the highlight of the year was a pair of hundreds at Lord's and Old Trafford against a potent England attack in May and June.

The award is calculated by the marks out of 10 that the Wisden Cricketer's reporters give each player at every Test and is the second successive time a Bangladesh player has won the award after Shakib Al Hasan won last year.

Tamim is currently recovering from surgery on his wrist that had ruled him out of the New Zealand series.

utter nonsense in my opinion...look what cricket has come to...never even heard of this bloke...no disrespect but players like tendulkar, gambhir, sehwag, watson.etc have come up against sterner tests and i feel that wisden needs to adopt a new method before giving out these awards...this one is a howler!!!!

Big Congratulations to Tamim. As someone rightly said, he should take this as a start to a bigger career.

As someone who supports and follows BD cricket, i am not entirely convinced that this awards are for cricketing reasons alone. For that matter, i am not convinced that Tamim deserved this award on merit alone. Probably, this award has been bestowed on him keeping the overall context that may include along with his scores, the impact of his innings on his own team's morale if not fortune, and the building of a role model for the current and future BD players to look at, for inspiration. He is one player who had definitely made even the quality opponents wary - and that has resulted ina fundamental change at how the opposition looks at BD team now.

Plus, doing well against England doesn't hurt your cause to get noticed by Wisden. Tamim had a phenomenal time against England, home and away, tests and ODIs. At one point, he had something like 5 consecutive 50+ innings. Nasser Hussain is in love with him. That helps too !

‘ক্রিকেট-জীবনের সবচেয়ে স্মরণীয় দিন’ (http://www.prothom-alo.com/detail/date/2010-10-16/news/101714)

চোটের কারণে দলে নেই, তবে বাইরে থেকেও ছিলেন দলের অবিচ্ছেদ্য অংশ। বাংলাদেশের সিরিজ জয়ের আনন্দ উদ্যাপনের মাঝেই খবর পেলেন জিতেছেন নামী ক্রিকেট ম্যাগাজিন ‘উইজডেন ক্রিকেটার’-এর বর্ষসেরা টেস্ট ক্রিকেটারের স্বীকৃতি। নিজের অর্জন, মাঠের বাইরে থেকে দেখা দলের জয় নিয়ে কাল কথা বললেন তামিম ইকবাল

 বাংলাদেশের সিরিজ জয়ের পরপরই আপনার এমন স্বীকৃতি, কেমন লাগল জানার পর?
তামিম ইকবাল: এই অনুভূতি ব্যাখ্যা করার ভাষা আমার জানা নেই। আমরা সিরিজ জয়ের পর অনেকক্ষণ মজাটজা করার পর যখন ফিরে যাচ্ছি, তখনই পেলাম খবরটা। আনন্দ যেন আকাশ ছুঁতে চাইল। নিঃসন্দেহে আমার ক্রিকেট-জীবনের সবচেয়ে স্মরণীয় দিন। সবচেয়ে ভালো লাগছে, টানা দুবার দুজন বাংলাদেশি এই স্বীকৃতি পেল।
 একটু আফসোস হচ্ছে না, এমন একটা সিরিজে খেলতে পারলেন না?
তামিম: এক মুহূর্তের জন্যও মনে করি না আমি দলের বাইরে আছি। মাঠে হয়তো খেলছি না, কিন্তু মন তো দলের সঙ্গেই আছে। আমি নিজেকে এই সিরিজ-জয়ী দলের অংশই মনে করছি। আফসোসের কিছু নেই। কেবল তো শুরু হলো, এমন সিরিজ আমরা আরও জিতব।
 কাল পুরো সময় ড্রেসিংরুমে ছিলেন?
তামিম: হ্যাঁ, একেবারে শুরু থেকে শেষ পর্যন্ত। এই সিরিজে মাঠের বাইরে থেকে আমি অনুভব করতে পেরেছি গ্যালারিতে দর্শকদের কেমন লাগে, ড্রেসিংরুমে কর্মকর্তাদের কেমন লাগে। মাঠে থাকলে এক রকম, বাইরে থাকলে আরেক রকম। কী যে উত্তেজনা, কী যে টেনশন!
 উত্তেজনার বশে আবার চোট পাওয়া হাত কোথাও মেরে বসেননি তো!
তামিম: নাহ্, সেদিকে সতর্ক আছি। হাত এখন অনেক ভালো। দ্রুত উন্নতি হচ্ছে। এত দিন শুধু পায়ের এক্সারসাইজগুলো করছিলাম, আজ থেকে হাতের এক্সারসাইজও করছি। ব্যথা অনুভব করছি না। আশা করি, জিম্বাবুয়ে সিরিজে পুরো ফিট হয়েই নামতে পারব।
 বাইরে থেকে দেখে দলের কোন জিনিসটা সবচেয়ে বেশি ভালো লেগেছে?
তামিম: একটা ইউনিট হিসেবে খেলা। আগে হয়তো আমি সেঞ্চুরি করতাম, শাহরিয়ার নাফীস বা সাকিব করত, কিন্তু এখন দল কারও একার ওপর নির্ভর করছে না। সবাই যার যার জায়গা থেকে সেরাটা দিচ্ছে। শচীন টেন্ডুলকার বা ব্রায়ান লারারা হয়তো একটা দলকে টানতে পারে। কিন্তু আমাদের প্রয়োজন অনেকের সমন্বিত অবদান। এই সিরিজে যেটা দেখেছি।
 এ বছর একসময় টেস্ট রানের দিক থেকে সবার ওপরে ছিলেন, এখন আপনার চেয়ে বেশি টেস্ট খেলে ছাড়িয়ে গেছে তিনজন। আফসোস হচ্ছে না!
তামিম: ভীষণ আফসোস হচ্ছে। বছরে সবচেয়ে বেশি রান কার, এটা ব্যাপার না। কিন্তু এক বছরে হাজার রান করা প্রথম বাংলাদেশি হতে পারতাম আমি। শচীন-শেবাগ নয়টা করে খেলেছে, ট্রট দশটা। আর আমি সাতটা। দুটো টেস্ট বেশি খেলা মানে চারটা ইনিংস। যেমন ফর্মে ছিলাম, চার ইনিংসে বাকি দেড় শ রান হয়তো অনায়াসেই করতে পারতাম। আফসোস তো হবেই। সত্যি বলতে নিউজিল্যান্ড সিরিজে যদি টেস্ট থাকত তাহলে এখনই অস্ত্রোপচার করাতাম না। যা হোক, সুযোগ নিশ্চয়ই আরও আসবে।
 যে মেয়াদকালের হিসেবে স্বীকৃতিটা পেলেন, সে সময়ের মাঝে সেরা ইনিংস কোনটাকে বলবেন?
তামিম: ক্রিকেটীয় দৃষ্টিকোণ থেকে বললে ওল্ড ট্রাফোর্ডের সেঞ্চুরিটা। কারণ বছরের ওই সময় ওল্ড ট্রাফোর্ডের উইকেট ব্যাটসম্যানদের জন্য বিশ্বের সবচেয়ে কঠিন উইকেটগুলোর একটি। তবে লর্ডসের ইনিংসটার সঙ্গে অনেক আবেগ জড়িয়ে আছে। আমার বাবা খুব ইতিহাসপ্রিয় ছিলেন। ইতিহাস গড়ার ব্যাপারগুলো তাঁর খুব ভালো লাগত। ওই সেঞ্চুরিটা তাই ছিল বাবার জন্য।
 আপনি সব সময়ই বলেন, আইসিসির কোনো অ্যাওয়ার্ড পাওয়া আপনার স্বপ্ন...
তামিম: হ্যাঁ, বিশ্ব ক্রিকেটের সর্বোচ্চ সংস্থার একটা পুরস্কার আমি পেতে চাই। তবে এখন পর্যন্ত উইজডেন ক্রিকেটারের এই স্বীকৃতিটাই আমার সেরা অর্জন।
