Bangladesh ODI skipper Tamim Iqbal has announced his retirement from T20 internationals.

The announcement of his retirement came just after Bangladesh swept West Indies in the three-match ODI series in Guyana.

“Please consider me retired from T20Is from today. Thank you everyone,” Tamim wrote on his official facebook page on Sunday.

Tamim took a six-month break from T20Is from January 27 though he played a domestic T20 tournament during this timeframe.

Earlier, he said that he would clear his position over his T20Is future before the six-month deadline ends after confusions were raised about it.

Tamim played 78 T20Is and scored 1,758 runs on an average of 24.08 and a strike-rate of 117.2, with a century and seven fifties.

His only century came against Oman in the preliminary round of the 2016 T20 World Cup in Dharamshala of India.
