In light of the fact that Tamim Iqbal and Taskin Ahmed, two of Bangladesh’s best cricketers, are nursing injuries, the team will wait until the very last minute to choose whether or not they will play in the one-off test that begins tomorrow against Afghanistan.
Ahead of the series against Afghanistan, Tamim’s back injury has returned, and the left-hander hit at the nets with considerable difficulty during practice on Sunday. The series will be played against Afghanistan. On Tuesday, the One-Day International (ODI) skipper of the Tigers was observed training with the physiotherapist and batting in the nets.
Nevertheless, according to the head coach Chandika Hathurusingha, the team management will evaluate Tamim’s condition when the training session for the day is finished.
I believe that he is going to work out today and then assess how he is feeling afterward. The day before, he went through his workout, during which he had some difficulty in specific drills, such as hitting and fielding. “We will evaluate him after he completes his workout today,” Hathurusingha said to the reporters on Tuesday. “He is going to train today.”
On the other hand, Taskin appeared to be in good form and was well on his way to recovering from a side strain that has kept him out of action since the previous white-ball series that was played at home against Ireland.
According to Hathurusingha, the seamer does not have any injury worries at the present time, while the fast bowler has been steadily increasing the intensity of their bowling.
“Taskin actually trained really well while he was going through that phase of rehabilitation, and I believe that physically he is in the best condition any of us have ever seen him in.” If we do decide to play him, I believe he will be ready to go right away.
“There’s nothing stopping at the moment; there’s no injury but the bowling workload is the little bit of concern leading up to the period so again he will also assess after today’s training and make the call,” he added. “There’s nothing stopping at the moment; there’s no injury but the bowling workload is the little bit of concern leading up to the period.”
