Ending all speculations, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) yesterday finally announced that Shakib Al Hasan, the Test and T20 captain of the team was ruled out of the Nidahas Trophy tri-nation competition in Sri Lanka.

Shakib’s participation in the tournament was in quandary after he was advised to have physiotherapy on the little finger which he injured during the ODI tri-series in Bangladesh last January.

He also was prescribed from Thailand in which he went to have advanced treatment, to rehab for some days once he is done with the physiotherapy. The BCB though included him in the squad and declared he may play one or two matches, finally understood the magnitude of the problem and gave him the rest he needed to get a full recovery.

Vice-captain Mahmudullah Riyad will lead the side while wicket-keeper batsman Liton Das was announced as the replacement of Shakib.

“He (Shakib) is someone you have to give as much time if he is going to be fit to play. We will give him the time, as long as he takes to get ready. Guys have to understand and work around that. When you have a world-class player like Shakib, you give him every opportunity to get fit,” Bangladesh interim head coach Courtney Walsh said of Shakib. The ace all-rounder however will be sent to Australia for further treatment, said a BCB official.

Bangladesh will depart the country today to take part in the tournament which also involved mighty India alongside the hosts Sri Lanka. The tournament will mark the Sri Lanka’s 70th year of Independence. Khaled Mahmud Sujon, who acted as technical director of the team in the side’s last series will be involved with the team in Sri Lanka in his usual role as team manager.

It would be a double-leg tournament in which each team will take on each other twice before the top two teams of the point table reach in the final.

The tournament starts on March 6 with the match between Sri Lanka and India. Bangladesh will get into the tournament on March 8 when they take on India. All of the match of the tournament will  be taken place in Colombo. The final of the tournament will be on Mach 18.
