The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Monday announced their Team of the Champions Trophy 2017.
The 12-member team was selected by a jury of cricket experts where Bangladesh’s dashing opener Tamim Iqbal got a place in the number three position for his 293 runs in just four matches with the scores of 128, 95, 0 and 70. Tamim finished the tournament as the third highest run-scorer, just behind India’s opening duo Shikhar Dhawan (338) and Rohit Sharma (304).
Still the Chittagonian is looking forward to much better batting in the future. “I cannot stop here if I want to go ahead. I believe I will need to improve more if I want to take one step forward from my current form,” said Tamim.
The left-hander also believes that every member of the Bangladesh team understands the need for further improvement.
“Without any doubt it was a big achievement to get to the semifinals for the first time. But we could have done a little bit better than what we did in the tournament.
“I believe one thing that all 15 members can understand after the tournament is that we need to learn from this event and that we need to better our performance if we want to go one step ahead,” he explained.
