Tamim feels ill, coronavirus test tomorrow

Fortune Barishal have secured the play-off by defeating Beximco Dhaka by 2 runs in the last match of league stage of Bangabandhu T20 Cup tournament. But the main topic from this match has been the absence of Barishal captain Tamim Iqbal during the fielding of the team.



Mehidy Hasan Miraz did the captaincy role in the absence of Barishal’s regular captain. Even after the match in post-match presentation, Tamim was not present.

Later, it was confirmed that Tamim was not on the field due to physical illness. Tamim was the first batsman from Barishal to return to the dressing room. After being out, he was in the dressing room as usual. However, the medical team advised him to return to the hotel due to his physical illness. This was the main reason why Tamim did not field.

Tamim’s illness may be due to a cold but there’s also the fear of coronavirus. Tamim said that he will play in the important fight of the eliminator match when everything will be normal in the test.

“I have been feeling a little ill since yesterday. But I felt a little better this morning. In the match, after I got out, the body starts to feel very weak. That’s when the medical unit of BCB came and saw me. They thought it would not be right for me to be in the dressing room at that time, so they sent me to the hotel in isolation,” Tamim said.

“Tomorrow (Sunday) morning I will have some tests. If all the tests come positive by the grace of Allah, I hope I can play in the semifinals,” added Tamim.
