Bangladesh ODI captain Tamim Iqbal is eventually set to return to action. 

The left-handed batsman is the latest to join the individual practice sessions at the Bangladesh Cricket Board facilities. 

Tamim has been one leading name missing the sessions after BCB made special arrangements of individual practice for the cricketers in order to facilitate their return to the field after a long pause due to the corona pandemic.

The 31-year old will return to competitive action for the first time since March this year, and after passing a nervous few weeks due to severe intestinal pain.

Amid travel restrictions worldwide due to the Covid-19 outbreak, Tamim travelled to London last month for diagnosis and treatment as several check-ups in Dhaka failed to reveal the cause of his illness.

Tamim was assured Thursday by the team of doctors from London that the pain he experienced was nothing serious and that he can get back to the field, but start with low intensity in the first week. 

The southpaw is returning to the field after completing a two-week mandatory home quarantine since his return from London on August 1.

 "I am doing fine at the moment and have completed my quarantine. The doctors have asked me to run a few more tests which I will do soon. I will start individual training from [Sunday]," Tamim told Dhaka Tribune Saturday.

Bangladesh cricketers, particularly those in the national fold, have been busy getting the rust off for having been at home for almost four and a half months. 

Bangladesh are set to return to international cricket with the tour of Sri Lanka, for a three-match Test series in October-November. 

The team will however, travel to the island nation a month before the start of the series, in September.

BCB has kept all professional cricket activities in the country suspended since March due to Covid-19 cases. 

The board has allowed the cricketers to take to the field individually following requests from the players themselves.
