It has been learnt that Tamim fell to injury on the very first day of the conditioning camp at Sussex’s home ground Hove, as he felt pain in his back. But Tamim assured that his injury isn’t that severe that it could put a question mark on his participation in the upcoming tri-nation series in Ireland, or the following ICC Champions Trophy 2017 in England and Wales.

“I felt some pain in my back during the first day’s practice session. So the doctors suggested me to take rest for a couple of days. These are just precautionary measures, and nothing serious. I don’t know if I will have to undergo a check-up after 48 hours. But I can assure that it’s not much serious at all, and I will obviously be available for the official matches,” said Tamim.

Tamim also informed that the weather in England is pretty decent at the moment, “The weather is fine. It was cold for last two days, but today (yesterday) it’s all normal. No problem at all.”
