Tamim to maintain self-quarantine till August 14
The 31-year old cricketer had traveled to London for treatment after feeling severe intestinal pain. He returned to Dhaka on August 1st after checkups and now has kept himself in self-quarantine since then.
“I had a small discussion with Tamim after he returned. I am yet to look into his report and know of the details. He has been put in self-quarantine imposed by the government,” BCB chief physician Debashish Chowdhury was quoted as saying by Dhaka Tribune.
Earlier, it was published in the media that Tamim underwent various tests under the Bangladeshi doctors before going to London but they couldn’t detect any issue. Hence, he went to London to find the cause of his illness.
As the second phase of BCB’s individual practice session is likely to be started from Sunday, the opener will miss some part of the practice session.
Meanwhile, the Bangladesh cricket team is expected to tour Sri Lanka in October and ahead of the tour, the players will continue practicing under a special arrangement of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) amid the threat of COVID-19 pandemic.
