West Indies tour of Bangladesh
Tamim eyeing a comeback in West Indies series
Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal said that he is eyeing an international comeback through the upcoming series against West Indies.
Tamim was ruled out of the Asia Cup after injuring his wrist in the opening game against Sri Lanka and is currently going through a rehabilitation program.
Tamim began batting three days back and, for the first, time had some sessions against cricket ball at the academy premise on Thursday that prompted many to believe that he is going to make a comeback in the series against Zimbabwe.
“Very less chance to play the second Test because I don’t think I can. I am not ready. I don’t think the physio will even permit me. It has just been three days of semi-batting, what I am doing right now. Unless I start full-fledged nets, it won’t be fair for the team from my part to declare myself fit,” Tamim told reporters at the academy premise.
“I have started batting against spin and the dog-stick. I haven’t faced any major pain, but since there’s a bit of weakness in my hand, particular shots give me a bit of pain. Once we do some strength work, the weakness will go away.
“Today is probably the third day that I am batting. I haven’t had a full net session. There’s a lot of difference between playing 130-140kph and playing against spin and the dog-stick. As of now, things are looking very positive. In the next three days, there’s going to be a full net session, after which I can tell where I am at,” he added.
