Bangladesh’s senior cricketer, Tamim Iqbal is making good progress in his rehabilitation program and is well on his way to recovery.

Previously, Iqbal underwent a very invasive pain management procedure and was under observation in the UK.

Meanwhile, he has shared his report on his recovery program and has stated that he is ‘on the right track’ and will be fit for the ODI World Cup soon enough.

It’s going good (as far as rehabilitation is concerned). I think the way my plan is set we are right on track I am quite happy with the outcome till now and I haven’t complained about the back pain yet and there is no sign of major pain since taking the injection.

Adding further, he says,

There is stiffness for one or two days till now I am very happy and whoever is involved with the program (rehabilitation) like the new rehab manager (Kieron Thoms), national team physio Bayzid and national team trainer Nick all of them are satisfied with the process. If we can move forward well in that case the series that I am targeting I hope (to make myself available).

Tamim Iqbal says 10 net sessions are important for a player to make a comeback

On the other hand, Bangladesh is going to take on New Zealand for a 3-match ODI series soon.

Which is why Tamim is targeting that very series for his comeback but has also stated that it is important that he take 10 net sessions in order to fully prepare himself.

It’s important (the five matches before the World Cup- three ODIs against New Zealand and two practice games) but for me what is important is to have proper 10 days of net sessions this is what I feel. Because I have played for so long, I don’t think match could be a big problem for me.

Adding further, he says,

Normally if I can do 10 net sessions properly before the first game, I should be ok. It is very good that we are getting five matches and let’s say if I play three to four games before the main event (World Cup) that is positive.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh will start their Asia Cup campaign on the 31st of August against Sri Lanka at Kandy’s Pallekele International Cricket Stadium.
