  • Tamim Iqbal with his wife and daughter

Reports in the papers stated that the 28-year-old's wife was the victim of an attempted acid attack, which was the reason why he had made a decision to go back home.

Tamim denies any such attack took place.

Bangladesh's Daily Star website reported Tamim, his wife Ayesha Siddiqa and one-year-old son returned home after the alleged incident while they dined at a restaurant.

Just four days after the announcement that he will play in the Natwest T20 Blast, Essex confirmed on Tuesday that he would be leaving the county due to "personal reasons" after playing just one game, against Kent Spitfires, on Sunday.

"Some reports of attempted hate crime against my family NOT true", Tamim wrote on Twitter.

Tamim was of course a crucial player for Essex with not just his pedigree as an worldwide star but also hot form considering that he averaged 73.25 with the bat in the recently-concluded Champions Trophy tournament.

He added a hashtag that read "love cricket in England" with the post.

"Essex County Cricket Club can confirm that overseas player, Tamim Iqbal, has left the Club with immediate effect due to personal reasons", a spokesperson said. "We wish him all the best, and it would be appreciated if Tamim's privacy is respected during this time", it said in a statement.

BCB chief executive officer Nizamuddin Chowdhury and Tamim's elder brother Nafees Iqbal, who also played Test cricket for Bangladesh, refused to comment on what they termed a "personal" matter.

However, the team management expected that Tamim would make a significant contribution to their Twenty campaign especially after scoring an impressive 128 runs against England in the opening match of the recent Champions Trophy.
