Akram told reporters:

“Currently 14-15 players are injured. This is a very serious issue for us, because we don’t have many option. Now we have to take every step carefully.”

However, Akram is still hopeful that except Shakib and Tamim, most of the players will be available for the Zimbabwe series.
