Tamim quits county, returning home


PV Sports Desk : Bangladesh cricketer Tamim Iqbal has left London on way to Dhaka, discontinuing playing in England county cricket, after facing an attempted attack accompanied with his wife in United Kingdom.

Earlier, on Monday night (July 10), miscreants attempted an attack upon Tamim and his wife Ayesha Siddiqa when the couple was on way to their residence in London after dining at a restaurant.

However, Tamim and Ayesha ran away immediately and saved themselves from the possible attack.

Feeling embarrassed over the incident, Tamim halted his participation in NatWest T20 Blast league, as an overseas player on side of the club Essex Eagles.

He was previously scheduled to play some 8-9 matches on side of Essex. But now the dashing left-arm opener of Bangladesh quit the domestic T20 competition of England run by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), after playing only one match this time.

Earlier, Tamim-Ayesha along with son Arham reached London on July 7. They also rented a house there for staying one month.
