Tamim well set to get back to his swashbuckling form

Last time when Bangladesh faced off Australia in ICC Champions Trophy in 2017 in England at The Oval, opener Tamim Iqbal waged a lone battle against a mighty Aussie bowling attack to make his presence felt.

He missed out the well-deserved ton being out on 114 ball-95 but he in fact was the only silver lining in an otherwise a pretty listless batting line up which crumbed under just slight pressure in a pitch that possessed no demon.

Before that match, Australia’s then skipper Steve Smith earmarked Tamim Iqbal as the most threatening object for them and the dashing opener preciously proved it right.

However when Tamim again is ready to face off Australia, he is not the Tamim of that ICC Champions Trophy as he has been going through a poor run of form since the start of this World Cup.

But he raises the prospect of getting back to the form after his well composed 48 off 53-ball against West Indies, a match in which Shakib Al Hasan hogged all the limelight for his sensational century. But few noticed that how Tamim kept the runs flowing when West Indies bowlers bowled markedly well.

And he could have made it bigger if he was not run-out by an excellent throw of Sheldon Cotrell.
