Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal has been in tremendous form in recent times and he has continued that form in the practice match against Pakistan today at Edgbaston. Bangladesh are currently taking on Pakistan in a practice match in the Champions Trophy 2017 where the captain of Bangladesh, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza has won the toss and elected to bat first.

Batting first, both Bangladesh openers looked good from the start of the innings. Although Soumya was hitting the balls all around the ground, Pakistan pacer Junaid Khan had different ideas and he took the wicket of Soumya Sarkar during the 7th over while he was on 19.

After Soumya’s departure, Imrul Kayes joined Tamim in the middle. Tamim started to lead the show with majestic batting and quickly picked up his half-century in the first delivery of the 14th over with a magnificent boundary.

The dashing batsman did not quit there rather he became more aggressive after completing his half century. Tamim then picked up a blistering century, smashing all over the ground. He faced 93 balls to score 102, hitting nine fours and four huge sixes, before going back to the pavilion in the first ball of the 34th over. Tamim smashed Junaid Khan for 25 runs in an over during his tornado innings.
