In Tests and ODI's combined he's got 7 centuries and 33 half centuries. His last century was 49 matches ago when he notched up his century against England in 2010. That includes 5 Tests and 44 ODI's. In that span of time, he scored 13 half centuries, 3 in Tests, 10 in ODI's.

So it's very obvious that Tamim can score half centuries at ease but has a very hard time converting those in to 100's. Obviously as a Bangladeshi top order batsman, those stats are very good considering how our other top order batsmen struggle to even notch up 50's but I'll state this again that, according to Tamim's standards, he's not doing as well as he should. Sometimes yes it can happen where you lose your wicket between 50-100 runs but this happening so many times? It shows it's a clear concentration issue and he really needs work on this part of his game. If he can start having a better conversion rate, he will not only help his average get higher, but also help his team in the process.
