Happy Birthday Tamim!

I am sorry, I didn't know. I am a terrible person. But now that I do, I wish him many more brilliant runs off nasty first hour balls in test cricket. And gift him Mandira Bedi attached to a cricket ball.

I have very little to say about Tamim, because when I realize how talented he is and that he is Bangladeshi AND not disappointing the shit out of us like certain people...I am dumbfounded.
In awe.
So happy I can't speak.

(I really can't find my dictionary).

All I can say is that he is 21. If you have kids, they are failures. If you are 21, you are a failure.

Because Tamim Iqbal exists and he is already better than we will ever be.
