Asianbangla, Dhaka : Key Bangladesh batsman Tamim Iqbal does not need surgery on his painful left knee, says Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) physio Dr. Debashish Chowdhury.
He made this disclosure at the BCB headquarters in Mirpur today after receiving the reports of the left-hander from David Young, the Australian surgeon who had his assessment on an MRI scan.
“Tamim has already started his rehab. Hopefully, he will be able to bat in the nets from next week and it will take him four to six weeks to be fit for game,” Debashish told reporters.
Tamim had earlier flown to Bangkok for tests on the injury to his left knee, skipping the Pakistan Super League final in Lahore earlier this month. The batsman had previously injured this very same leg and had to go under the knife in December 2014 in Melbourne, where Young had the surgery.
