Injured Tamim Iqbal ruled out of the Pakistan series

Tamim Iqbal will have to wait to make his return with a thumb injury ruling him out of the home series

After injuries to Mohammad Saifuddin and Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh have received another hammer blow before the home series against Pakistan, with opener Tamim Iqbal ruled out with a thumb injury. Bangladesh’s premier all-rounder Shakib has been ruled out of the shortest format series after sustaining a hamstring injury in the T20 World Cup. 

Tamim was expected to play a massive role in the home series, after he pulled out of the T20 World Cup earlier this year. However, a new fracture on his broken thumb pushes his comeback in international cricket. 

"Yes, he is ruled out from the home series against Pakistan due to a thumb injury. The swelling has not healed and due to that reason he had another x-ray. It revealed he is having a fracture that was not found out previously,'' Minhajul told Cricbuzz.

The three-match T20I series begins on November 19, with the remainder of the series on 20 and 22, at the Sher-e-Bangla National stadium. On the other hand, the two-match Test series will start on November 26, with the final Test on December 4.
