Shakib al Hasan out of series
Bangladesh suffered a crucial blow when star all-rounder Shakib al Hasan was ruled out of the entire one-day series against the West Indies because of injury, an official said on Saturday.
The second match of the series will also be played in Khulna on Sunday. The 25-year-old all-rounder’s chronic shinbone injury recurred during the second Test in Khulna last week and he was initially ruled out of the first two of the five-match one-day series.
Bangladesh physician Debashish Chowdhury said after a review of his MRI scan reports on Saturday that he has been asked to rest for four to six weeks.
“We reviewed his MRI and have decided to rest him for the series. He will need at least four to six weeks rest to heal the injury, though no surgery is required,” Chowdhury said.
