Bangladesh ODI captain Tamim Iqbal has returned to the field after a ‘tough’ four-month period. The cricketers were confined to their respective homes due to the Covid-19 outbreak. The individual training session for the cricketers in Bangladesh began on July 26.

Tamim was off to London as he suffered from severe intestinal pain. The 31-year-old remained in self-quarantine after returning home. 

"To be honest these four months were very tough. We were at home with our family and we were under mental pressure because we could not go out," Tamim said on Monday (August 17). "Normally we get seven to eight days off after one tour and then we can go somewhere or do something. But these four months our family was concerned with our health issues. Finally, cricket is beginning and it's a good thing as we love it."

The batter said it would take a good two weeks to get his rhythm back. However, there aren’t many chinks in the armour as per the cricketer. Tamim said it’s important to be in a good state of mind as they brace themselves for the upcoming Test series in Sri Lanka. The Tigers will participate in a 3-match Test series in September as it was postponed earlier.
