Mahmud joins Tamim in return flight

Rookie Bangladesh pacer Hasan Mahmud will return home after failing to regain full fitness ahead of the T20I series in New Zealand, Bangladesh Cricket Board announced on Saturday.

“The 21-year old has not trained or played due to a stiff back following the first ODI in Dunedin,” BCB said in a statement.

“Mahmud left for Dhaka today (Saturday) along with ODI captain Tamim Iqbal. He will continue his recovery under the supervision of the BCB medical team,” it added.

Tamim will miss the T20I series, starting today, because of personal reasons that he had announced before the start of the ODI series.
