Bangladesh national team and Dhaka Platoon opener Tamim Iqbal returned to training at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram today.
The left-hander was admitted to hospital after falling ill with fever last week. He batted for around an hour at the nets of Dhaka Platoon and is expected to play in Platoon’s next match against Cumilla Warriors.
Dhaka Platoon’s manager Ahsanullah Hasan spoke about Tamim’s recovery and expected return to match. “Tamim returned from hospital the day before yesterday. He is fine right now and took part in training today. He may still have a bit of weakness. We hope that he will be able to play tomorrow’s match even though it is not certain,” Hasan said.
Platoon lost their last game against Chattogram Platoon without the services of Tamim. The left-hander took a break following disappointing form at the World Cup and the ODI series in Sri Lanka. He has struck 71 in the first game before hitting 31 in the second match and Dhaka will be hoping that Tamim’s homecoming is a good one if he does take the field tomorrow.
