Tamim reaches 8000 runs milestone in ODI as a 1st Bangladeshi cricketer


BSS, Dhaka :
Opener Tamim Iqbal became the first Bangladeshi batter to reach the milestone of 8000 runs in ODI cricket during his 62 runs against Zimbabwe in the opening game of the three-match ODI series on Friday at Harare Sports Club.
The ODI captain needed just 57 runs to achieve the feat as he arrived in the crease to open the innings for Bangladesh with 7943 runs under his belt. He got the feat during the 24th over of the innings, hitting Sikandar Raza a boundary.
Tamim, however, is the 33rd cricketer in the world to enter into the 8000 club in ODI cricket. He is, however, the 11th left-hand batter to achieve this feat. Apart from that as an opener, he is the ninth and sixth as left-hand opener to the 8000 club.
Tamim reached 1000 club in his 37 innings after making his debut for Bangladesh in 2007. To reach 2000 runs club, he needed further 33 innings.  Then he needed 32, 35, 21, 17, 29 and 23 innings to reach 3000 to 8000 runs.
Currently, he has 8005 runs under his belt in 226 innings of 228 matches. He hit 14 centuries and 54 half-centuries in the process with the highest of 158 that came against Zimbabwe. He remained not out 11 times in 228 matches and currently averaging 36.94 in ODI cricket.
Habibul Bashar Sumon was the first Bangladeshi batter to reach 1000 and 200 runs. Mohammad Ashraful was the first one to get to 3000 runs and then Shakib Al Hasan opened 4000 runs club. The next was the story of Tamim as he opened 5000 to 8000 runs club as of now.
As Bangladesh will play a good number of ODI matches in the next two-three years, Tamim has the good chance to reach 10,000 runs club, a feat that was achieved by very few batters of the world.
