The tournament was won by Pakistan at The Oval with a 180-run victory over India on Sunday. When asked about the tournament, Tamin gave a straightforward answer that it was a fantastic tournament.

“It was a fantastic tournament. And it ended in amazing style. It was a typical Pakistan campaign, making a brilliant turnaround from their defeat in the first match to become champions. It’s very difficult to explain their performance because you never know which Pakistan will show up on a given day. Simply unbelievable,” he said.

The opening batsman has said that no team had any chance to relax, which was the real beauty of the competition. In a tournament like this, Bangladesh reached the semis. According to Tamim, Bangladesh are proud of their achievement.

“The top eight teams took part in the tournament and no one had any scope to be relaxed, which was the real beauty of this tournament. We feel proud that in such a quality competition we were among the top four sides,” Tamim added.
