Tamim finally declared fitStaff Correspondent
Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal was declared fit after he underwent a test during Bangladesh’s first training session ahead of the Asia Cup at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Wednesday.
National team physio Bibhab Singh submitted his report on the opener’s fitness after making a thorough observation on his fitness.
Tamim was controversially excluded from the Bangladesh squad and he put on standby.
His omission at the insistence of Bangladesh Cricket Board president AHM Mustafa Kamal created an uproar and it ended up with the resignation of chief selector Akram Khan on Wednesday.
Tamim, widely regarded as Bangladesh’s best batsman, had been suffering from a groin injury that kept his playing experience in the recently held Bangladesh Premier League to only two matches.
Trainer Grant Luden was also impressed by Tamim’s fitness level and said that he looked very much fine while participating in all the drills during the session.
‘He [Tamim] looked okay,’ Luden told New Age on Wednesday.
‘He participated in all the drills and was quite comfortable with it,’ said Luden.
As far as I am concerned he not for once looked like he was carrying any sort of injury,’ said Luden.
