Bangladesh’s left-handed opening batsman Tamim Iqbal has withdrawn from the T20 World Cup. He has been out of the team for a long time due to a knee injury. The World Cup will start from the month of October. This tournament will be played in UAE and Oman.
Tamim Iqbal suffered a knee injury during the Test series against Sri Lanka in April. Since then he has been away from international cricket. Tamim was first absent from the Zimbabwe series due to an injury and then was not present in the home series against Australia too. Tamim Iqbal is also not a part of the five-match home Bangladesh-New Zealand series.
Tamim Iqbal said in the press conference “I called board president Nazmul Hasan and chief selector Minhajul Abedin just a few minutes ago and said that I don’t think I should play in the World Cup and I am not available for it. I thought this decision Got it and I’ll stick to it. I’m not retiring. It’s just that I’m not available for this World Cup.”
