Shakib Al Hasan picked up a groin injury during the third ODI

The Bangladesh Cricket Board official said on Thursday (28 January) that all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan will be available for the upcoming two-match Test series against the West Indies, as his scans are clearly post-injury.

We hope he will practice soon.” ” “Perhaps he can rest for a day or two but at the moment there is no doubt about his involvement in his scan report considering the scan report we received today.”

Meanwhile, BCB chief physician Debashish Choudhary told Cricbuzz that Shakib did not break the bio-bubble despite leaving the team hotel for his scan.

Chaudhary said, “We have a protocol for this series and it is described in the MOU what needs to be done in such a situation. The WICB officials are fully aware that we are looking into the matter as COVID-19. Following the protocol. ” .

Bangladesh will take on the West Indies in Chhatragram from February 3-7 before returning to Dhaka for the second Test match starting on February 11.
