Injured Shakib to miss Bangladesh’s final with India

DHAKA: Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has returned home from the United Arab Emirates due to injury and will miss Friday’s Asia Cup final against India in Dubai, a team official said.


Shakib also missed Wednesday’s virtual semifinal against Pakistan after he complained of a fresh pain in an injured finger. “The condition of his finger really turned bad. It got swollen. He was even unable to hold the bat,” manager Khaled Mahmud said from Dubai. “We felt he immediately needs a surgery. He will soon travel to the USA to visit a doctor,” he added.


A Bangladesh Cricket Board official confirmed Shakib arrived back in Dhaka at midnight on Wednesday. Thirty-one-year-old Shakib hurt his left little finger during the one-day international series against Sri Lanka in January and missed the subsequent Test and Twenty20 series. He returned to the team for the Nidahas Trophy in Sri Lanka in March and has continued playing since then.


He wanted to have a surgery before the Asia Cup for a complete recovery from the injury, but the BCB insisted on him playing in the Asia Cup. — AFP
