If recovery goes well, Tamim is likely to bring himself back to action through the one-dayers in Bangladesh Cricket League
Bangladesh ODI captain Tamim Iqbal returned to the nets Monday for the first time after recovering from right-thumb fracture.
The opening batsman took to the nets at BCB Academy field, Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, and spent time without any complication facing only spinners on the day, and will combat the pacers in a few days’ time.
Tamim was off the field for more than two months recuperating from the fracture.
The left-hander had recovered from what was initially thought to be a single fracture, picked up during his participation in the Everest Premier League in October this year.
Due to slow recovery, he underwent further medical assessment, on November 14, of the injury which revealed that he had carried not one but two fractures on the same finger.
Tamim then travelled to London in November and met with the doctors in Leeds who suggested that there is no need of a surgery and that he should rest for another one month and undergo treatment as advised.
The Bangladesh cricketer is scheduled to be assessed with regards to his recovery by the end of December.
Tamim has been out of action for Bangladesh team following the ODI series on tour of Zimbabwe in July this year.
Injury denied him from playing the two T20I series at home against Australia and New Zealand and later the batter opted out of the T20 World Cup.
Tamim was scheduled to be back with the Test series at home against Pakistan last month.
But wrong treatment ruled him out not only against Pakistan but also from the impending tour of New Zealand for a two-match Test series.
If recovery goes well, Tamim is likely to bring himself back to action through the one-day competition in the ongoing Bangladesh Cricket League.
