Bangladesh opener, Tamim Iqbal, announced his retirement from T20 Internationals on conclusion of the ODI series against the West Indies on Saturday (July 16).
Tamim, the ODI skipper of Bangladesh, posted a status on his official Facebook page stating that he had retired from international T20s after Bangladesh clean-swept the West Indians in the three-match ODI series in Guyana.
“Please consider me retired from T20Is from today. Thank you everyone,” Tamim wrote in Bangla.
Tamim, on January 27, took a six-month break from T20Is, though he played a domestic T20 tournament during this period.
Earlier, Tamim stated that he would clear his position regarding his T20I future before the six-month deadline ended after confusion surrounding it.
Tamim played 78 T20Is and scored 1758 runs at an average of 24.08 and a strike-rate of 117.2 that included one century and seven fifties.
