Bangladesh ODI skipper Tamim Iqbal began his rehabilitation on Saturday for his injured knee, said Bangladesh Cricket Board official.

Tamim will miss competitive cricket for at least two months because of a knee injury and he returned home from Harare after competing in the ODI series against Zimbabwe.

The southpaw, who missed the ongoing T20I series against Zimbabwe, is also expected to miss the T20I series against Australia and New Zealand in the coming months.

“We have sent him a rehab plan today (Saturday) and he starts his activities after receiving it. The first two weeks it will be a very light workout at home and later the intensity will grow as he will do gym sessions and other activities,” BCB chief physician Debashish Chowdhury told The Daily Sun on Saturday.

“He will need six to eight weeks rest and we don’t want to rush anything as this can only be cured with proper rest,” he added.
