Bangladesh one-day international captain Tamim Iqbal was waiting for the doctor’s decision to know whether or not he will be available to play in the Tigers’ upcoming series against Sri Lanka.
The left handed opener had been suffering from abdominal pain and had gone to UK last month to consult a doctor.
Tamim returned home on August 1 and now is going through mandatory quarantine which is keeping him absent from the player’s individual training sessions.
Chief medical officer of Bangladesh Cricket Board Debashish Chowdhury told New Age that Tamim would consult his doctor again shortly which could determine his availability for the Sri Lanka series.
‘He [Tamim] will consult the doctor within one or two days. Though the diagnosis has been done, the reports are yet come. So far he is fine. If the doctor finds something and prescribes something, that’s a different issue. But so far, he is okay.’
