ZIM vs BAN: Tamim Iqbal doubtful for one-off Test, Musfiqur Rahim likely to play; Reports- Bangladesh stylish opening batsman Tamim Iqbal is doubtful for the one-off Test against Zimbabwe starting July 7. Coach Russell Domingo has confirmed that Tamim is yet to fully recover from a knee injury that he sustained during Dhaka Premier League last month. Meanwhile, Mushfiqur Rahim is on the path to recovery from his finger injury.

“We are still not 100% sure about Tamim, There’s still a lot of doubt regarding him. I think a decision will be made in the near future. Mushfiq is pretty confident that he will be fit to play. He has done his rehab really well. Everything seems to be on track. I am pretty confident that he will play,” Domingo told ESPNCricinfo.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh did not get a chance to look at the wicket which has disappointed the head coach.

“Unfortunately, the groundsman hasn’t allowed us to look at the pitches, We have been asking the groundsman this afternoon, why he isn’t allowing us to look at the pitch. [It’s only] once we have had a good look at the pitch either later today or tomorrow, will we have more ideas about what sort of bowling attack we will be looking at,” he said in a video message.”

He added that Shakib Al Hasan’s return has boosted the team’s morale.

“Shakib looks really hungry to play Tests again. The thing that’s always the key with big players is their desire and attitude when they come into a Test series. It is great to have him back. He balances the side really well. He bats in the top six, and he is a frontline bowler. He is what every international team is looking for, so it is really pleasing to have him back. He has brought really good energy and attitude on this tour, as well.”
