After an anxious wait, Bangladesh ODI captain Tamim Iqbal was assured that the severe stomach pain he experienced was nothing serious when he received his medical reports from London on Thursday.
Tamim had gone to London on July 25 for diagnosis and treatment after several check-ups in Dhaka failed to reveal the reason behind the pain. Before leaving, he had said he was barely able to stand straight due to the excruciating pain.
The left-handed opener returned to the country on August 1 and got the results on August 13 and, according to Tamim, there was nothing to worry about. However, doctors advised that he do one more blood test.
The 31-year-old is expected to send the test report to London again, after which he will start treatment.
Since returning from London, Tamim has been in quarantine at home and is set to join Bangladesh's individual training session in Mirpur from August 16.
"At the moment I am doing fine and after completing my quarantine I will start individual training from August 16," Tamim told The Daily Star yesterday.
