Bangladesh ODI captain Tamim Iqbal announced his retirement from T20Is and his decision came soon after they beat West Indies 3-0 in the three-match ODI series. The left-handed batsman announced this on his official Facebook account. Tamim posted the message in Bengali, and it read: “Consider me retiring from T20 Internationals from today. Thank you all.”

The batsman had not done T20Is for Bangladesh since the middle of last year and hence speculations were rife about his future in the format.

Tamim last played a T20I in March 2020 and in that game, he scored 41 off 33 balls against Zimbabwe.

The left-handed batsman played 78 T20Is for Bangladesh, scoring 1,758 runs.

He is the only batsman to register a T20I century for Bangladesh and he finishes as the third highest run-scorer for Bangladesh in the format at an average of 24.65.
