Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib al Hasan has been ruled out from the second and final Test of the ongoing series, beginning in Dhaka on February 11.
According to the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), the star all-rounder has been ruled out after failing to recover from an injury he sustained during the first match in Chattogram.
BCB said in an official statement,
“Shakib has been assessed and monitored continuously since suffering a strain on his left thigh on the second day of the match in Chattogram and after careful consideration, it has been confirmed that he will not be available for the second Test.”
The statement added,
“Shakib will leave the team bio-security bubble this week and for the time being will be under the surveillance and treatment of the BCB medical in Dhaka as he continues to recover and consolidate his physical robustness.”
It is worth mentioning here that the second and final test match of the ongoing series between West Indies and Bangladesh will be played at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Dhaka.
The ongoing series is part of the ICC World Test Championship. West Indies lead the series 1-0 after brilliant victory in first Test with three wickets, courtesy a spectacular double ton by debutant Kyle Mayers.
