Batsman Anamul Haque has been called up on the eve of the Khulna Test as cover for an injured Tamim Iqbal. It is still unclear whether the uncapped Haque will make his Test debut as Tamim tries to recover from a sore elbow.
Tamim hurt a tendon in his left elbow while batting in the first innings of the Mirpur Test against West Indies. He batted only against spin in the nets on Monday, and will undergo a fitness test to determine his availability for the second Test. "Tamim sustained a muscle tendon injury during the first Test on his left elbow. He will do a fitness test later today or early tomorrow (Wednesday) morning," the team's physio Vibhav Singh was quoted as saying in a board release.
ESPNcricinfo has learned the opener Nazimuddin will likely replace opener Junaid Siddique for the second Test, so Tamim's injury has caused some concern for the team management which is not keen on drafting in an extra bowler in the XI in the event Tamim misses out.
