Tamim Iqbal sustains fractured left hand ahead of England series

prv_0d047_1472383713Tamim Iqbal is in a race against time for the upcoming home series against England after he fractured his left hand during a training session on Saturday. The left-handed batsman was sent for an x-ray on Sunday (Sunday 28) that confirmed the injury, which will rule him out for close to three weeks.

Bangladesh are likely to play Afghanistan at home with the two boards already in talks for a bilateral One-Day International (ODI) series in September before England arrive.

England’s tour of Bangladesh will go ahead as scheduled after an England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) delegation, led by security adviser Reg Dickason, accompanied by director of cricket operations John Carr and David Leatherdale of the Professional Cricketers’ Association (PCA) cleared the tour after making their own security assessment.

England are scheduled to play three ODIs and two Tests starting from October 7. The matches will be played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka and at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong.
