BCB President makes revelations about Shakib's injury

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President Nazmul Hasan Papon, on Tuesday, has made several revelations about ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan's finger injury.
While talking to one of the television channels, BCB head said, "We even didn't know that Shakib Al Hasan was going to participate in Asia Cup, 2018 because neither team physiotherapist nor Shakib himself informed us about that."
"When I was about to left Abu Dhabi prior to Pakistan's match, I noticed the big swelling in Shakib's finger which I never witnessed before. He said it wasn't possible for him to play but in natural tendon some others insisted him to play in the semi-final," Nazmul Hasan continued.
 "I instantly said him to go back. And that was the last time I talked to him before returning to Dhaka. I visited him in the Apollo Hospital; checked and rechecked all of his medicines," BCB President said.
"Shakib said he wanted to go to London before reaching USA. But I heard he went to Australia. And I asked him about the condition.
"He told me doctors said surgical procedure isn't important.
Team physiotherapist Debashish Chowdhury said it is hard for them to locate an infection as there were no external symptoms previously," he said.
"Like all of you, we are also out of knowledge about Shakib's extension of condition and how it turned out to be so bad all of a sudden. Because no one like any doctors and physiotherapist told us that. We never neglected anyone's trouble. If we could know the grave situation, I must took the initiative to treat Shakib properly," BCB head said.
