Bangladesh batsmen will fail to see T20Is in Zimbabwe in addition to house suits towards Australia and New Zealand
“We have to place avid gamers in quarantine for ten days sooner than the Australia collection Bio-Bubble. We need as many choices as we will as a result of we will be unable to name avid gamers from out of doors Bio-Bubble.”
Iqbal was reportedly injured in Sri Lanka in April but has recovered enough to play an ODI series against them in May. He also played 11 matches in the T20 Dhaka Premier League, but injury forced him to miss the Super League stage of the competition.
He missed the one-off Test against Zimbabwe earlier this month, before saying he would “set up” the injury and play the ODI series, mainly because it is part of the World Cup Super League.
The decision to withdraw came after a recommendation from Melbourne-based orthopedic surgeon Dr David Young, who has consulted several Bangladesh cricketers over the years, including Iqbal and Mashrafe Mortaza.
Australia are expected to reach Dhaka next week to play five T20Is scheduled from August 2 to 8. New Zealand are likely to play three or five T20Is in Dhaka in early September, before England arrive in October to play three ODIs and three T20Is.
