ODI skipper Tamim Iqbal returns to practice after recovering from knee injury
Dhaka, September 20: Tamim Iqbal did not play in the ODI series against Zimbabwe due to a knee injury and even missed the T20I home series against Australia and New Zealand. The ODI captain has also withdrawn from the upcoming Twenty20 World Cup due to a long absence from the short version of cricket.
Tamim picked up the bat at the Mirpur Stadium on Sunday after undergoing rehabilitation for his injuries. He practiced batting at the center wicket at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium. And after all this time, he looked the usual destructive batsman we know of.
He was seen playing some spectacular shots around the field. A few shots also flew across the boundary. After a full 40 minutes of practice, the dashing opener made his way to the dressing room.
Tamim will play in Nepal's Everest Premier League (EPL) even if he does not play in the T20 World Cup. He has also taken a no-objection letter from the Bangladesh Cricket Board for this. It is learned that Tamim will leave for Nepal on September 23 to take part in the tournament. The best opener of Bangladesh team is practicing batting on the occasion of that tournament.
