Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal will visit a Melbourne-based surgeon after being diagnosed with a grade one meniscus tear in his left knee.
Iqbal will meet Dr David Young, who specialises in orthopedic surgery, on Monday and a further course of action will then be decided.
Iqbal suffered the injury while representing the Legends of Rupganj in the Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League earlier this month.
“Tamim will fly for Melbourne on Friday and is expected to consult Dr Young on Monday,” Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) sports physician Dr Debashis Chowdhury said. “We will decide on the best possible management of the injury according to the advice of Dr Young.
“He is a very important player for us and with the World Cup just two months away our priority is to get him fit in the shortest possible time. However, it is also equally important to ensure that the recovery and rehab is not hurried.”
