Tamim Iqbal Khan (Bengali: তািমম ইকবাল খান) (born 20 March 1989 in Chittagong) is a Bangladeshi cricketer who played in the 2006 U-19 Cricket World Cup in Sri Lanka. He plays his First-class cricket for Chittagong Division cricket team. He also played for Old DOHS as an opener in the Corporate League. Tamim Iqbal is the brother of Test player Nafees Iqbal and the nephew of Akram Khan, another famous cricketer from Bangladesh. He was picked for the 2007 Cricket World Cup and played against India scoring 51 runs from 53 deliveries, helping his team beat India. He was called in the main squad for the first time for the Zimbabwe tour. He then scored his maiden ODI half-century in Bangladesh's victory against India in the World Cup.

Although he was part of the player auction for the 2009 Indian Premier League, Tamim was not bought by any team.[1]

On Bangladesh's tour of the West Indies in July and August 2009, Iqbal scored his maiden Test century. Against a West Indies team weakened by disputes between players and administrators which resulted in seven players making their Test debut in the match, Iqbal's effort with the bat helped Bangladesh to a historic victory. It was Bangladesh's first against the West Indies in Tests, their first overseas Test victory, and only their second Test win. Tamim scored his first Test century against the West Indies on the fourth day. He ended up with 128, and was named Man of the Match for his performance (he also scored 33 in the 1st innnings). Speaking of his innings, Iqbal said "It was a flat wicket, and if you concentrate hard and look to bat straight, it's a good track to score on. I'm just 20 and have played only 11 Tests, I think there are a lot more [innings like these] to come".[2][3]

Bangladesh's coach, Jamie Siddons, opined in January 2010, before the Tri-Series in Bangladesh in 2009–10 with Sri Lanka and India, that Iqbal had "the makings of a world-class opener".[4] On January 25th Tamim Iqbal scored 151 in a record partnership with Junaid Siddique against India. On 13 March 2010, in the course of an innings of 86 in his first Test against England, he became the second youngest player in Test history (behind Sachin Tendulkar) to reach 1000 runs.
