Summary

  • Dubai [UAE], Jun 1 (ANI): Bangladesh faced a major blow as Tamim Iqbal’s wrist injury leaves him uncertain for his side’s opening fixture against South Africa in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup.
  • According to Bangladesh Cricket Board officials, Tamim had a precautionary X-ray which showed no fracture, but bruising and swelling might just rule the left-hander out of Sunday’s game.
  • But if that is not the case, then we can hope he will be available for the opening game,” selector Habibul Bashar had said before the X-ray scan.
  • Tamim’s absence will hurt Bangladesh as he has been prolific run-scorer in the top-order.
  • Bangladesh will begin its World Cup campaign against South Africa at The Oval, London on June 2.
