Tamim Iqbal Opts Out Of India Tour, Bangladesh Announce Replacement
Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal has opted out of the upcoming series against India starting next month citing personal reasons. The national selectors have called a like-to-like replacement, Imrul Kayes to replace the experienced batsman.
Tamim’s wife is expecting their second child later this month which is the reason why Tamim has decided to not travel with the team. However, it is not sure whether Imrul will also be a part of the Test series which is a part of the ICC World Test Championship.
Bangladesh will play three T20Is starting from November 3 followed by two Test matches from November 14.
