Tamim’s return inspires Bangladesh in practice match

The biggest positive for the visiting team was getting back ODI captain Tamim, who overcame injury concerns and took part in the game

Visiting Bangladesh cricket team had a good 50-over practice outing, despite the warm up match getting called off during Zimbabwe Select XI’s chase due to bad light at Takashinga Sports Club in Harare Wednesday.

The biggest positive for the visiting team was getting back ODI captain Tamim Iqbal, who overcame injury concerns and took part in the game.

The left-handed opening batsman topped the Bangladesh innings with a half-century.

The touring side however, will miss the services of wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim for the remainder of the series involving three ODIs and as many T20s after the cricketer opted to return home due to family emergency.

As per reports, Mushfiq’s parents have tested Covid-19 positive and shifted from Bogra to the capital city for better treatment.

Bangladesh in the practice game batted first after winning the toss and saw captain Tamim lead from the front with 66 runs.

The 62-ball innings was laced with 11 boundaries and one over boundary and boosted the visitors to a total of 296 for six at the end of 50 overs.
