Tamim Iqbal is The Owner of The Highest 'Duck' in Bangladesh Cricket

Tamim Iqbal scored 310 runs in the last three matches of the series against Zimbabwe. But the Tigers captain had to return empty-handed in the first match of the return series on Zimbabwean soil. As a result, Tamim's name has sat on the unwelcome record.

Bangladesh has been invited to bat before losing the toss at Harare Sports Club. However, Tigers captain Tamim Iqbal said he would have decided to bowl earlier if he had won the toss. Zimbabwe's two new fast bowlers seem to have proved why Tamim used to bowl earlier. In the first two overs, Tamim Iqbal and Liton Das could not take advantage against Blessing Mujurabani and Tendai Chatara.

The two pacers raised the possibility of getting out with several balls. Two Tiger openers survived for a while. However, Bangladesh could not make any run from the first two overs. Mujurabani made the first ball of the third over just outside the off-stump. Tamim wanted to cut the delivery with extra bounce. But the ball hit the outside edge of his bat and went into the wicketkeeper's gloves.

Tamim was dismissed for zero for the 19th time in his ODI career. Which is the record for most runs in ODI cricket for Bangladesh. Not only that, Tamim is now the owner of the highest post for Bangladesh even though the three formats match.

In one-day international cricket, Tamim Iqbal and Habibul Bashar Sumon have had 18 equal calls so far. Tamim and Mashrafe bin Mortuza had 33 equal calls in three formats. Today (Friday) Tamim released Bashar and Mashrafe from two records after being bowled out for zero in the first ODI against Zimbabwe. Tamim now has 34 zeros in three formats.

However, Tamim is still far behind in terms of world cricket. Sri Lanka's Muttiah Muralitharan has been dismissed for 59 runs in three formats in international cricket. West Indies' Courtney Walsh (54) and Sri Lanka's Sanath Jayasuriya (53) also returned with more than 50 runs. Tamim has more than 34 calls from 31 batsmen in three formats. Apart from Tamim and Mashrafe, only Mohammad Ashraful has made more than 30 calls, 31 of them.
