Chittagong Vikings skipper Tamim Iqbal may not play the next two matches of Bangladesh Premier League as he got a groin injury in the match against Comilla Victorians on Thursday at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong.
The prominent opener confirmed the possibility of unavailability in the next two matches at the post-match press conference on Thursday.
He said, "I've sustained an injury in my groin which is hurting me a lot at this moment for which I may not be able to play the next two matches."
"Yet we have some days prior to the next match, I'll see how the injury turns out by then. The physio, however, told me that it will take approximately ten days for full recovery."
The next group match of the Chittagong rivals is scheduled for December 8 (Tuesday) where they will face Dhaka Dynamites in Mirpur.
Although, Tamim is current the leading scorer in the third edition of BPL with 290 runs in 8 matches so far, his team condition is not that good at all.
The Chittagong team were secured the fifth place after completing the phase of six-team BPL with four points from eight matches.
Losing six and two wins, Tamim-lead team apparently got less chance to reach the semi-finals now.
