Tamim targets return during WI Tests

Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal hopes to mark his return to competitive cricket when West Indies tour Bangladesh later this month for a full series, reports ESPNcricinfo.

Tamim has only begun batting against the cricket ball this week, after undergoing rehabilitation for a wrist fracture.

Tamim injured himself while batting during the Asia Cup opener in September, a game remembered for his heroic return to bat with one hand, with Bangladesh nine down.

"I think I will be fit for the first Test [against West Indies]," Tamim said on Thursday.

"I always wanted to play the second Test against Zimbabwe, at least that was the plan three or four weeks ago. I am not ready. I don't think the physio will even permit me. It has just been three days of batting against spin bowling and the dog-stick. It is actually semi-batting what I am doing right now."
