The question is not correct
The fans of Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara, Ricky Ponting can ask the question that if they had the opportunity to play T20, they could have become the highest run batsman for the country in all three formats. But the question remains. For example, would Don Bradman's Test average have been 99.94 if he had played at this time? How would you do, ODI or T-20? Tamim Iqbal is a true run-winner. He is the first batsman in world cricket, who is the highest scorer for the country in all three formats.

Father's name is Iqbal Khan
Tamim's becoming a cricketer was like destiny. His father Iqbal Khan is a famous player and sports organizer of Chittagong. All but one of the seven brothers of the father and uncles are known faces in Chittagong sports arena. Tamim's six uncles—the late Kamal Khan, Azam Khan, Akram Khan, Aslam Khan, Afzal Khan and Akbar Khan. Tamim's father Iqbal Khan scored the first century in Chittagong cricket after independence. He scored a historic century for Star Club against Elite Paint with 1 six and 13 boundaries. Iqbal Khan also had a great ability to score goals in football. Dapete played football in Chittagong Mohammedan and Wapda Club in Dhaka. He became the highest scorer of a season by scoring 16 goals in the Dhaka First Division Football League. Iqbal Khan also played an important role behind the formation of Chittagong Abahani. KKRCE (Kazi's Deuri Khawaja Recreation Club) founded by him later became Abahani. Iqbal Khan is also successful as a coach. Ashish Bhadra, former captain of the national football team, Satyajit Das Rupura grew up in his hands. Iqbal Khan's leg had to be amputated due to illness. Despite that, he was standing on crutches in the hot sun and umpiring in the field. He used to watch the boys play and correct the mistakes.
