Sports Desk: There was a rumor that Tamim was the target of an attempted hate crime in the United Kingdom. But, turning down the media reports, Tamim Iqbal said he has to come back home early from Essex for personal issues.
The opening batsman of Bangladesh made the disclosure through his official Facebook page on Wednesday.
He said, "I want all my fans and well-wishers to know that I cut short my season with Essex to come back home early for personal reasons. Some media reported that we were the target of attempted hate crime. This is really not true."
Tamim also added, "England is one of my favourite places to play cricket and Essex have been entirely gracious even though I had to leave early."
