Bangladesh cricketer Tamim Iqbal and his wife Ayesha Siddiqa celebrated the birth of their first child on Sunday. The couple welcomed a baby boy and Tamim expressed his delight on his Facebook page. Both the mother and baby are alright. However, doctors kept the little one under observation for 24 hours.
“Our little bundle of joy has arrived! By the Grace of Almighty, we’ve been blessed with a baby boy earlier this morning. Though both mom and son are doing fine, Doctors have kept the little one under observation for 24 hours. Please keep us in your prayers,” Tamim wrote on Facebook.
Earlier the flamboyant opener pulled out of the ongoing Asia Cup T20 to stay with his wife during this period. In his place, other left-handed top order batsman was included in the Bangladesh team.
The Mashrafe Moratza-led team will play their third game of the Asia Cup 2016 on Sunday against Sri Lanka. Bangladesh supporters can hope that the new born baby will bring luck to their team as well.
