Bangladesh ODI skipper Tamim Iqbal returned home on Monday after completing his back treatment in England.

The left-handed opener arrived at the Hazrat Shah Jalal International Airport in the evening following a series of injections to get healed from his back injury.

Dressed in a black T-shirt and a black trouser, Tamim waved his hand towards the available media personalities but he refrained from having any interaction with the journalists, who waited eagerly to know about his present health condition.

It is understood that Tamim will go for a seven-day complete rest to see where he stands following the injection and if he feels alright, he will start his rehabilitation programme slowly following the week-long rest.

“If there is no pain, he should be able to start the rehabilitation after one week and he will increase the intensity of his workload slowly,” a BCB official told The Daily Sun.

“He will understand where he (Tamim) stands when he gets closer to the high-intensity workload and see whether that pain is coming back or not,” he added.

Bangladesh team management is eagerly waiting to see their ODI skipper returns to business as quickly as possible considering he is expected to lead the side in the upcoming Asia Cup, subject to his fitness.

“Look we still have concern over his availability due to the stature of his injury that is recurring in the recent past,” said a member of the selection panel. “All we can do is hope for the best,” he added.
