He said, “We are not really forcing Tamim to do anything. The decision of returning in the field action is totally upon him. He can play whenever he wishes to. We are hoping to have him in the Dhaka phase; we actually don’t want to take any risk in this regard.”

Tamim Iqbal is the icon and captain of Comilla Victorians. But in his absence, the franchise authorities have positioned Afghan recruit Mohammad Nabi as stand in skipper.
