Tamim Iqbal played a brilliant 128-run innings in the first match of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. While the left-handed batsman brought up his ninth career ton and also had an on-pitch altercation with England’s all-rounder Ben Stokes. It began when Stokes threw a barrage of words at Tamim.
On the next ball, he approached the dashing Tiger opener to unsettle him on his follow-through, the Bangladeshi player paid no heed to the verbal sledging and told the all-rounder to find his way back to the popping crease.
The inform opening batsman smashed the English bowlers to all parts of the ground. During his 128 runs innings Tamim had a great time with Bangladesh Test skipper on the middle as the pair added 166 runs in 25.1 overs to hand a crucial advantage to the challengers.
However, it was not the first time these two cricketers were involved in such incident a the same incident happened between them during England Team’s Bangladesh tour last year.
