The left-hander had come into the tournament nursing a bruised finger and things went from bad to worse in Bangladesh’s Asia Cup opener against Sri Lanka in Dubai.
In the second over of the innings, Tamim was struck on the wrist by a Suranga Lakmal delivery and was attended to by the team’s medical staff after going down in pain.
Unable to continue, the Bangladesh opener had to retire hurt.

Tamim Iqbal is out of the Asia Cup with a fractured wrist.
The 29-year-old was immediately sent to the hospital for scans with a fractured wrist being the result.
The setback is set to sideline the batsman for at least six weeks and he will play no further part in the tournament for Bangladesh.
The opener’s injury adds to Bangladesh’s woes with star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan also nursing a finger injury in the tournament. Spinner Nazmul Hossain is also carrying an injury on his bowling arm.
