Tamim Iqbal has become the second Bangladeshi batsman to score a triple century in first class cricket.

The left-handed opener reached the milestone while batting for East Zone against Central Zone in a Bangladesh Cricket League match in Dhaka's Mirpur on Sunday, reports bdnews24.

Tamim, Bangladesh's highest run-scorer in international cricket, struck 40 boundaries on his way to the landmark 334* as his team declared the innings at 555/2.

Raqibul Hasan, the first Bangladeshi triple centurion, who had scored 313 in 2007, was also on the field for the opposition when Tamim reached the figure surpassing him.
