“If everything goes well I should be available from the beginning of the ODIs against West Indies. ut before that I am looking forward to play the practice game at BKSP.”

Tamim’s injury nightmare began during the first game of the Asia Cup and had to return home straight after that. Although, he played with the injured wrist in the ongoing game and helped Mushfiqur Rahim to play a blinder of an innings. It helped Bangladesh, in the end to clinch a thumping victory against Sri Lanka.

Meanwhile, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza has been named as the captain for the practice match and a 13-man squad has been announced.

BCB XI squad: Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Soumya Sarker, Mohammad Mithun, Tawhid Riday, Ariful Hoque, Akbar Ali, Rubel Hossain, Mithun Joy, Shahin Alam, Medidy Hasan Rana, Nazmul Islam Apu.
