Shakib ruled out of New Zealand ODIs

  • Print




Bangladesh stalwart Test captain Shakib Al Hasan has been ruled out of the upcoming New Zealand ODIs due to a finger injury that he sustained during the final of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) on Friday between Dhaka Dynamites and ComillaVictorians.
Shakib led the Dynamites in the final who lost the match by 17 runs and failed to clinch the title in the second attempt on a trot.
A source close to Shakib said he got injured on his left ring-finger while batting for the Dynamites.
The southpaw got the blow while facing a short delivery from Sri Lankan pace-bowlerThisara Perera as Shakib missed the ball while pulling away and the ball has struck on his left ring-finger.
Source said Shakib had a scan after the blow, and the scan suggested that he suffered a fracture.
Debashis Chowdhury, the chief physician of BCB, said, "An X-ray was done after the match which suggested that he had a fracture on the left ring-finger. It will take three weeks to heal."
A group of eight Bangladeshi players have already reached New Zealand, and the another group was scheduled to fly on Saturday night. Shakib was one of them who were set to fly last night along with ODI captian Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, Tamim Iqbal, Rubel Hossain and Mohammad Saifuddin. But an abrupt injury ruled him out.
Banglaesh will play a three-match ODI series against New Zealand, which will start from February 13 and they will lock horn against the same opponent in a three-match Test series as well. Shakib might return in Tests.
Shakib was sidelined during most part of last year due to another injury on his finger what he has sustained during the final of tri-series in the home. He was out of action during the Test and T20 series against Sri Lanka. He was also out of cricket during the first part of Nidahas trophy in the Island nation.
However, he played in West Indies managing his injury but failed to complete the Asia Cup in UAE. Shakib started playing regularly from the home series against West Indies later in the last year.
