Tamim denies taking wages from Essex
Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal denied taking any payment for his one-game stint with English county side Essex Eagles in the NatWest T20 Blast. The left-hander had an absurd end to his tenure in the T20 Blast and upon returning to Dhaka denied receiving any wages. Tamim was scheduled to play eight or nine matches for Essex and set to earn £3000 per game. However, sudden end to his stay meant the Bangladesh cricketer did not pocket any payment.

According to reports, Tamim’s gesture was made due to putting the team in a dilemma. His exit forced the Essex team management to find a replacement on urgent basis. It was learned that Essex management were humbled by Tamim’s decision. Tamim earned a call-up to Essex as the second foreign signing of the season, following his brilliant performance in the 2017 Champions Trophy in England last month. The southpaw departed Dhaka to join the side on July 6 and made his debut for the club against Kent Spitfires in Kent, scoring seven runs. However on Tuesday, Essex announced Tamim’s end to his stay, citing “personal reasons” and that the cricketer had to leave for home immediately. This paved the way for the cricket world to guess as to why he left so abruptly. Different versions of “hate crime” incident were labelled against him by the media.

Tamim, who returned to Dhaka on Wednesday evening, however, rejected the claims and termed them all as “rumours”. He stated that he never quit Essex because of a “hate crime” and emphasised that the reason was only personal.
