The Bangladesh Cricket Team is scheduled to play three T20Is and two Tests in India
Bangladeshi batsman Tamim Iqbal was ruled out from the National Cricket League (NCL) due to a muscle strain yesterday. He played as the opener during the match. The batsman was expected to bat on the second round for Chittagong Division. However, he started to complain about a muscle strain on the right side of his rib.
Iqbal was asked to take a break for a week in order to recover.
‘He was feeling muscle strain on the right side of his rib and we decided to rest him as a precaution and sent him to BCB’, an official from Chittagong said.
BCB chief physician Debanish Chowdhury spoke about Iqbal’s condition. ‘His rib sustained slight injury day before yesterday. As he was not feeling pain, he batted in the nets yesterday but again the pain resurfaced and we had a scan yesterday and we got the report today that suggested that he should take rest for the next seven days’.
The Bangladesh Cricket Team is set to tour India in November. They will play three Twenty20 International and two Test matches against the Men in Blue. The Test series will form part of the ICC World Test Championship.
