Comilla Victorians' Tamim Iqbal celebrates reaching his century during their BPL final against Dhaka Dynamites in Mirpur Friday Dhaka Tribune/Md Manik

The left-handed batsman smashed 10 fours and 11 sixes as the Comilla Victorians prevailed by 17 runs to lift their second ever BPL title

Comilla Victorians’ player of the final Tamim Iqbal hoped his fellow Bangladesh teammates would take a leaf out of his book and play a significant knock in a BPL final in future.

His whirlwind 61-ball 141 helped his side to victory against Dhaka Dynamites at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka Friday in the grand finale of BPL 6.

The left-handed batsman smashed 10 fours and 11 sixes as the Victorians prevailed by 17 runs to lift their second ever BPL title.

“A Bangladeshi did the job in a big occasion in the BPL. I think this is the best achievement from [Friday’s] innings. Normally an overseas player does the job on the big day on the previous occasions. I hope my innings inspires the others from Bangladesh. They don’t need to wait for others to do it. We can also do it,” said Tamim during the post-match press conference.
