Elder uncle Akram Khan, younger uncle Akbar Khan, big brother Nafis Iqbal all played cricket. With so many cricketers in the family, it was not difficult for Tamim Iqbal to dream of becoming a player. But how can the dream be fulfilled only by wanting ! It takes a qualified craftsman to fulfill that dream. Uncle Akbar Khan played that role in Tamim becoming a cricketer. Today, the country’s best opener lost that uncle forever.
On Thursday morning, Tamim’s uncle left the world and moved to the other side. Tamim not only mourned the loss of his uncle, but also reminisced, “My younger uncle Akbar Khan has left us all this morning (Inna Lillahi wa Inna Ilahi Raziun). He himself was once a cricketer. Many may not know that he was my first cricket coach. I got a lot of basic cricket education from him. I also played my first cricket match under his supervision. As far as I can come today on the path of cricket, because he laid the foundation with care.”
At the same time, Tamim also prayed, “May Allah Ta’ala make him a dweller of Paradise. I pray for everyone for my uncle and his family. ”
