The star batsman from Bangladesh, has withdrawn from the forthcoming T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates. Since the Tigers’ home series against Zimbabwe in March 2020, the left-hander hasn’t played in the 20-over format.
Tamim is the Tigers’ second-highest run-scorer in T20Is, after only Shakib Al Hasan. The veteran has 1701 runs at an average of 24.65 in 74 matches, with one century and seven half-centuries. He is the only Bangladeshi cricketer to make a century in a T20I match.
In reality, the Chittagong-born cricketer has only played three T20Is since January 2019.
During the Test series against Sri Lanka in April, the left-hander suffered a knee injury. He did not play in the T20I series against Zimbabwe and Australia, and he is not in the five-match T20I series squad against New Zealand.
