Bangladesh’s veteran opening batsman Tamim Iqbal struck an unbeaten 334 in a first-class match at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka to make the record for the highest individual score for a Bangladeshi batsman in red-ball cricket.
Tamim’s stupendous feat was achieved in the contest between East Zone and Central Zone in the Bangladesh Cricket League (BCL) fixture. His remarkable innings would give him immense confidence heading into the first Test against Pakistan scheduled to commence on February 7.
Tamim was at the peak of his abilities as he smashed 42 boundaries and three sixes during his marathon 426-ball stay at the crease. His fantastic contribution allowed his team to stamp their authority on the proceedings and get into a strong position to win the game.
