Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal won’t play the remaining matches of Asia cup after fracturing his wrist during tournament’s opener against Sri Lanka.

The left-handed opener sustained the injury from only the third ball he faced when a Suranga Lakmal delivery struck him.

Tamim received treatment from the team physio but was forced to retire hurt on two not out at the Dubai International Stadium.

The 29-year-old is Bangladesh’s all-time leading run-scorer and centurion in ODI cricket and his absence will come as a significant blow to the team’s hopes in the tournament.
