Shakib to miss T20I series?

Shakib to miss T20I series?

Bangladesh’s all rounder and T20I captain Shakib Al Hasan, who was included in the squad for the T20I series against Sri Lanka, says that he might not play in the T20I series. While speaking at an event where he was announced as the brand ambassador of the Anti-Corruption Comission (Durniti Domon Comission), Shakib informed that the doctor has told him that the injury will require another two weeks to heal.

"There is still no official statement regarding this issue but the doctor has told me that the injury will take another two weeks to heal. So, if that is the case then maybe it is unlikely that I will play in the T20 series," Shakib said.

On Saturday (Feb 10), Shakib's bandage was removed for examination of the injured area. The doctor found that the injured area has not yet healed. He missed the Test series against Sri Lanka after falling in injury.

Shakib was included in the squad announced by Bangladesh Cricket Board on Saturday for the first T20I.
