The diagnosis reports arrived from Bangkok revealing Tamim Iqbal’s extent of knee injury have not brought any good news for the Bangladesh opener. Doctors have suggested him to stay out of any field action for five to six weeks.
According to a source of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), the MRI scan did not show well for Tamim Iqbal’s knee.
Physicians urged him not to participate in any sort of deeds except rehabilitation works.
He will consult with specialist doctor on Monday and will decide the upcoming tasks further.
Tamim is supposed to return to country on Tuesday. The left hander felt the pain in his left knee for many days since Australian specialist surgeon David Young operated.
Tamim Iqbal missed the second eliminator match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and flew to Bangkok for treatment.
He will also miss the PSL final. Sabbir Ahmed has replaced Tamim Iqbal to play for Peshawar Zalmi in the PSL final 2018.
