Bangladesh was shocked as the opening batsman before the New Zealand Tour. According to reports, Tamim Iqbal was excluded from the entire tour due to a thumb injury because he was injured while participating in the Everest Premier League in Nepal.
According to Cricbuzz, Debashish Chowdhury, the chief physician of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), revealed the news and confirmed that it will take at least one month for the experienced activist to fully recover from the injury.
“He encountered the body and they advised him to rest for a month, although he did not need any surgery. In that case, he missed the trip to New Zealand. His left thumb was hit, and there was a small fracture.Now he will not be able to participate in cricket matches for at least three weeks,” Chowdhury said to Cricbuzz.
The New Zealand Tour will be part of the 2021-23 World Test Championship (WTC) cycle. The first test will be held at the Bay Oval in Tauranga from January 1st to 5th, after which the two teams will have their second match in Christchurch on January 9th.
