Default Tamim shortlisted for Sri Lanka Premier League T20 !

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has secured the service of Tamim Iqbal including several prominent overseas cricketers for Sri Lanka Premier League T20 (SLPL) which will get underway from July 19. Was hoping to see few more Bangladeshis though. Nice to see Kevin O'Brien in the list
