Tigers resume training today
The national cricketers will resume their practice after Eid vacation today at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur. After treatment on his skin cancer coach Jamie Siddons, whose job has been extended till the 2011 World Cup, returned Dhaka two days back to take charge of the team. The cricketers started their preparation ahead of the upcoming home series against Zimbabwe, who will arrive in Dhaka on October 21 to play a five-match one-day series against the Tigers. Siddons however will get only few cricketers to train as four players have been selected to tour with the Bangladesh A team in India while captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza is going through a rehabilitation programme and his deputy Shakib Al Hasan is nursing a groin injury. Left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak is now in India with his ailing mother while left-arm pacer Syed Rasel was rushed to Dhaka from Jessore on Wednesday and admitted to a city hospital with high fever."Rasel is now okay. His family was little bit worried with the symptoms of the fever and that's why they rushed to Dhaka but there was nothing wrong in the examination reports," informed assistant coach Khaled Mahmud.
