Nov 15, 2021: According to a cricinfo report, Bangladesh batter Tamim Iqbal has been ruled out of the two-Test series against Pakistan at home due to a thumb injury.
Cricinfo said an X-ray report on Sunday revealed Tamim had a fracture on his left thumb, which he injured during a franchise Twenty20 match in Kathmandu last month.
“The fracture was almost healed, but my thumb was swollen,” Tamim said. “So we wanted to do another X-ray, which showed that there was a fracture. “Maybe there were two, but it didn’t come up in the first scan […] I can’t move it. The whole process has to be restarted.”
Tamim has been ruled out of this year’s Twenty20 World Cup, citing a lack of playing time due to a knee injury.
Bangladesh, who were knocked out in the group stage of the T20 World Cup, will play three T20 matches against Pakistan in Dhaka from Friday. The first Test will be played in Chittagong from November 26 and the second in Dhaka from December 4.
