After playing the eliminator 1, he experienced a lot of pain in his left knee which also ruled him out of the qualifier 2 as he flew away to Bangkok to seek medical assessment. Tamim is expected to return home on March 25 – the day of the final – and will decide the next course of action after discussing his rehab with the Bangladesh Cricket Board.
Tamim told to a reporter: “I had pain in the Nidahas Trophy and so could not field in the final. I also could not field in the match at PSL.”
Bangladesh national team returned to Dhaka from Colombo on Monday morning after ending the Nidahas Trophy journey. Two premier cricketers of the team Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudullah Riyad flew to Lahore to participate in the eliminator stage of the Pakistan Super League.
The PSL final will be played between the PSL 2 winner Peshawar Zalmi and PSL 1 winner Islamabad United on Sunday.
