Pakistan vs Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal ruled out from test series due to thumb injury
Bangladesh's batsman Tamim Iqbal has been banned from her two series of tests at home against Pakistan because of a thumb injury. Cricinfo said an X-ray report on Sunday revealed Tamim had a fracture in his left thumb that he injured during a Twenty20 franchise game in Kathmandu last month.
"The break was almost healed, but my thumb remained swollen," said Tamim. “So we wanted to take another x-ray that showed there was a break. “There were probably two, but it didn't come out on the first scan. I can't move it. The whole process has to start over. "
Tamim skipped this year's Twenty20 World Cup due to lack of playing time as he was recovering from a knee injury. Bangladesh, eliminated in the group stage at the T20 World Cup, will play three T20 games against Pakistan in Dhaka on Friday.
The first test will be played in Chattogram from November 26th, followed by the second from December 4th in Dhaka.
