Industry Desk: Though some cricketers of the Bangladesh national team have started training, ODI captain Tamim Iqbal has not been seen on the field yet. It was reported that the left-handed opening batsman has been suffering from stomach pain for the last three months. However, he has been experiencing severe stomach pain recently. He is set to travel to London on Saturday for better treatment as there is no improvement even after visiting doctors in the country.
For the past few days, Tamim has been consulting online with physicians based in London. The most successful batsman in the history of the country told a media that he had taken the decision to travel to London for treatment following the recommendation of the physicians.
Tamim said, “Three months ago, suddenly, I experienced severe stomach pain. I thought maybe it could be something like food poisoning. However, I had the attack [severe stomach ache] thrice in the last three weeks. The pain is so severe that I cannot even stand straight.” The ODI captain said that despite several checkups and pathological tests, the reason behind the intestinal pain remained unknown. That’s why I consulted with a doctor based in London in London. He told me to go there as soon as possible. “If I could go to Bangkok or Singapore, it would be an advantage for me. But air communication is not normal in these places yet. So I am forced to go to London. An important test remains to be done. I decided to do it there,” Tamim said. Tamim has taken the decision to travel to London after informing BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury. He also spoke to BCB doctors. Now just waiting for the ‘COVID-19 Negative’ clearance for foreign travel. The opener hopes to get it by Saturday. If all goes okay, he will fly on Saturday.
