Staff Correspondent: Bangladesh national cricket team’s ODI captain Tamim Iqbal has been suffering from stomach pain for the last three months. He left for London on Saturday for better treatment as there is no improvement even after consulting doctors in the country.
The most reliable opening batsman left for London on an Emirates flight yesterday morning. He will first travel to Dubai. Then he will go to London. However, as soon as reaching in London, Tamim will not be able to get treatment there.
The Tiger Captain will have to stay in self-quarantine for two weeks at his own expense first. If no symptoms of coronavirus will be seen during this time, he can visit a doctor.
Tamim Iqbal has been suffering from severe abdominal pain for the last three months including thrice in the last month. He went to local specialist doctors and made several check-ups in the last few days who suggested him to get admitted to a hospital. However, he could not be admitted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Despite several checkups and pathological tests, the reason behind the intestinal pain remained unknown.
Tamim was considering traveling to Singapore or Thailand for better treatment but travel to those countries is now very difficult for the global coronavirus situation. Finally, he decided to go to London after an appointment with a doctor in London through video call on Tuesday.
