Tamim expected to be fully fit before EPL

A Bangladesh Cricket Board official said on Monday that he is expecting Tamim Iqbal, who started his individual practice on September 19, to be fully fit before the upcoming Everest Premier League.

 Tamim, who pulled out of the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup, had a batting session on the opening day while on Monday he took part in a fielding practice session where he took some catches.

Tamim recently completed his rehabilitation program for the knee injury that lasted for two months and forced him to skip Bangladesh’s last three T20 International series against Zimbabwe, Australia and New Zealand respectively.

BCB chief physician Debashish Chowdhury had a close look at Tamim when he was batting at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium nets while both had a light chat between them.

“Tamim is not having any problem when he is batting but we have to see how he feels when he does running between the wickets and fielding,” Debashish Chowdhury told The Daily Sun.

“But the way he is improving we are hopeful that he will be able to make it in EPL,” he added.

Tamim, who will be representing Bhairahawa Gladiators in the competition, is expected to leave on September 24 to take part in the tournament.
