Bangladesh captain Mominul Haque on Thursday (April 7) affirmed that Tamim Iqbal is fit and accessible for the last round of the two-Test series against South Africa in Port Elizabeth.
Tamim, who stepped through separated in no Exam since playing his last against Sri Lanka at the Pallekele in April 2021 because of injury, was supposed to include in the series opener in Durban, however was precluded with a stomach issue. Opener Shadman Islam is supposed to clear way for the accomplished campaigner as he will open the innings with Mahmudul Hasan Joy who turned out to be first Bangladeshi hitter to hit a Test century against South Africa.
“Tamim bhai’s condition is vastly improved now and we are confident he will play the following game,” Mominul expressed in front of the subsequent game.
Mominul said that they are sure of doing great in the series-finishing up game to end the visit on a high while adding that they are not prepared to ponder the frustrating batting in the fourth innings in Durban that ruined all their work of the initial four days to battle neck-to-neck with South Africa.
“Absolutely we will play for a success and will attempt to play great cricket for 12 to 13 meetings without giving any consideration to all the commotion around,” said Mominul. “We would rather not contemplate what occurred in the initial game.
“We are yet to conclude whether we will play a seamer or a spinner instead of Taskin,” he said, who was precluded with a shoulder injury. “Positively we will miss Taskin considering he is performing since getting back to Test cricket. Simultaneously a major an open door for the cricketer will supplant him in the playing XI,” he added.
