Shakib ruled out of NZ ODIs

Bangladesh sustained a huge blow prior to the upcoming one day international series against New Zealand when iconic all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan sidelined with fresh injury on his finger after speedster Taskin Ahmed.

The all-rounder received the injury to his left ring finger while he was batting in the final showdown of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) against Comilla Victorians on Friday night.

Victorians salvaged BPL title after a three-year gap thrashing Dhaka Dynamites by 17 runs in the nerve-jangling final at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium (SBNCS) in Mirpur.  

While facing a short-pitched delivery of Sri Lankan pace all-rounder Thisara Perera, Shakib got the blow when he missed the ball that directly struck on his left ring finger though he was dismissed off the next delivery. He might be out of cricket for the next three weeks.

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) chief physician Dr Debashis Chowdhury told The Independent that they have confirmed a fracture on his left ring finger after being done an X-ray.

“After the BPL final, we sent him (Shakib) for an X-ray. After getting the result of it, we have confirmed a fracture on his left ring finger. He needed around three weeks to be healed from such injury,” said Dr Debashis Chowdhury.     

The first two contingents of the Bangladesh ODI squad players already left Dhaka for New Zealand for the three-ODI series on February 6 and 8 respectively, the series that will begin in Napier on February 13 following a warm-up match at Linkon, Christchurch on February 10.

Shakib was expected to fly with the five-member third and last ODI contingent of the Tigers led by Mashrafe Bin Mortaza. Tamim Iqbal, Rubel Hossain and Mohammad Saifuddin were the other members of the contingent.    

The 31-year-old Shakib earlier missed the bulk of the games in the last year for another injury on his left little finger.

Shakib first got injury on the stroke of the final of tri-nation series (involving Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe) at home yard. The left-handed all-rounder, therefore, was out of action against Sri Lanka after that tri-nation series. The south-paw was also out of cricket during the initial few matches of the Nidahas Cup Trophy in the Island nation.  

Since then, he had to return home from United Arab Emirates after being incomplete his Asia Cup prior to a crucial match against Pakistan.  

Actually the all-rounder was not fully fit for competitive cricket until the home series against West Indies in November-December.
