Twitter applauds Tamim Iqbal after one-handed batting

But despite the injury, he decided to come to bat again when Bangladesh lost nine wickets and still had 19 balls to play. Everyone was shocked to see him on the field. However, his such brave decision helped his side add 32 more runs for the final wicket, with his partner Mushfiqur Rahim going on to make a fearless 144.

The most dazzling part was that Tamim batted with only his top hand and it took a lot of attention in the cricketing fraternity.

Here is how cricket fans hailed Tamim on Twitter:
