Tamim Iqbal is a left handed, top order batsman, who has played first class cricket in Bangladesh for the Chittagong division. His brother Nafees Iqbal also plays international cricket for the country and both are the nephews of Akram Khan, the former captain of the Bangladesh cricket team.

Tamim Iqbal made his ODI debut in 2007, and then went on to play the World Cup in West Indies. His most remarkable performance was the 53-ball 51 that knocked India out of the World Cup. He then went on to cement his place in the side and scored a century against Ireland in a three match ODI series. This ensured his place in the World T20 in 2007 in South Africa, and though he is one of the hardest hitting Bangladeshi, he has not yet found those levels of consistency in this format.

It was this hard hitting that found him a place in the Test side on the New Zealand tour in early 2008, where, under alien conditions, he scored a fifty on debut, out of his team's total of 137. In the second innings, he continued his good form, scoring another 80 in the second inning and shared a 160 run first wicket partnership with Zunaed Siddique.
