Bangladesh opening batsman Tamim Iqbal has suffered an injury and has been ruled out of the second Test against South Africa which starts tomorrow in Bloemfontein.
National Team Physiotherapist Thihan Chandramohan said, “Following the first Test match Tamim underwent an ultrasound scan which demonstrated a grade 1 hip muscle strain.”
He added, “These findings coupled with his worsened clinical signs mean that he will be unavailable for selection for the second Test. If his recovery goes to plan then we are hopeful that he will be fit for the first ODI on 15 October.”
Despite of having a ‘Grade One Tear’ in the muscle of left leg, Tamim Iqbal played in the first Test of the series although he couldn’t perform well. He got hurt during the only warm-up game against South Africa Invitational XI.
The Vice Captain of the Test team was taken to a local physician in Potchefstroom after the conclusion of the first Test and the physician advised him to quit the Test series.
