Tamim Iqbal Highest Run Scorer in Champions Trophy 2017
Question in detail
Not many, in fact, none would have predicted Tamim Iqbal to become the highest run scorer in Champions Trophy 2017, prior to the tournament. Fairly, you might have Steven Smith, Virat Kohli, Joe Root, Kane Williamson and some other big names in your prediction list. But, the way Tamim has batted so far proved millions predictions wrong making the world take notice of him.
Being on the top of the batsmen's chart is a special feeling for someone who was once neglected to become the highest run scorer in ICC Champions Trophy 2017. Tamim Iqbal has given some truly laudable performances in the tournament as yet. He hit a well-calculated century against England in the opening game. And it was not by chance. The Bangladeshi opener again rose flamboyantly in his second game against Australia. Two impressive knocks against two big sides are what characterize Tamim as an ace performer with bat. Bangladesh's innings build-up revolved around Tamim Iqbal's runs in Champions Trophy 2017 both times previously. However, unfortunately, his brilliance hasn't taken Bangladesh to a victory heretofore.
He showed a mix of patience, determination, and yes the aggression at times to brutally treat the poor deliveries. He's been just remarkable throughout, irrespective the threat English and Aussies' bowlers respectively proponed to the rather unnoted Bangladeshi opener. His 142-ball 128 in the tournament's opener followed by another impressive 95 against Australia made the world take notice of his true batting potential. In the warm-up fixture as well, the 28-year old batsmen made the Pakistani bowlers toil. He smashed a banging hundred in the match and cleared his intention. Tamim Iqbal is leading the batsmen's table at present with 223 runs in two games. He has scored at an average of 111.50 and a strike rate of 87.11. Tamim Iqbal's runs in Champions Trophy 2017 will negotiate Bangladesh's frontal progress.
Will Tamim Iqbal emerge as the highest run scorer in Champions Trophy 2017?
