u can give Tamim that nickname until my man Shahadat 'The butcher' Rajib returns to the team (and he will). but I think we should work on a permanent nick for Tamim. how about Tamim the Terrorizer? too cheesy?
Fast bowling is all about character and attitude. You have to have the attitude of bowling fast and hitting people. So for most of the Sub-continent the problem remains in the attitude." (Aqib Javed)
Salaam and heart-felt duas for my baba son Tamim Iqbal Khan...Allah bless you son!
What a magnificant batsman you are baba!

Go back two years ago after the ICC 20/20 games in SA, everyone wanted Tamim dropped from the National team, he was even banished to the U19 team and did not score, but management brought him back, stuck with him as an opener and he has rewarded them 10 times over. Everyone thought that he was a fluke after his marauding score against India.
I feel that he hs matured under JS, playing more classy strokes, and have shown patience and fortitude to space his innings.
Well done, Tamim, I always believed in you.
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)

he needs to improve his twenty 20 performances as his average in that format of the game is only 13.33 after 12 quite appauling games.
Thanks for the info. I just went back to cricinfo to check his stats and realized that the top row is for test stats and the second row was ODI stats. Hopefully he will turn his average in to mid 30s by next year.
Why is siddons allowing him to coach them? Siddons should be sacked for that. J/K
On a serious note. When I went to watch a practice match @ rural wormsley before T20 WC I saw a bit of batting practice by Raqibul, it was Salahuddin who was using the bowling machine and instructing Raqibul how to play the shots. So he does help a lot in other department. It will be big loss if BCB let him go just because we under performed in circus cricket.
“This again vindicates my belief in setting goals and working hard to achieve that. This was easily the best innings I have ever played and it is dedicated to my late father. I am an international cricketer today because of him,” said Tamim while speaking from Bulawayo.
“When you are chasing 300 plus there is a lot of stress on the mind and the natural tendency is to go and start hitting. But he (Siddons) never put us under any pressure. We were told that we will get there easily if we play normal cricket. The coach also said that it was not a problem if we got to 50 in the first 10 overs as long as we didn’t lose too many wickets.
