Shakib's side-strain not serious: BCB chief selector

The Bangladesh Cricket Board said on Wednesday (May 15) that there is no serious issue with Shakib Al Hasan despite the all-rounder retiring hurt in their last league match against Ireland of the ongoing tri-series.

Shakib left the field after sustaining strain on his left side while batting on 50. The all-rounder was seen taking a medicine offered by physio Thian Chandramohan after he seemed to have struggled while leaving the crease. His pain had recurred after he pulled a short ball off Joshua Little.

"He did not sustain any serious injury as far as we are concerned," BCB chief selector Minhajul Abedin told Cricbuzz. "We did not want to take any risk with him so we opted to bring him back but we are confident that he will be fine soon."

In a show of sheer domination, Bangladesh beat Ireland by six wickets to get a psychological boost ahead of their tri-series final against West Indies.

Shakib was earlier ruled out of the three-match ODI series against New Zealand and the following two Tests after sustaining a finger injury during the Bangladesh Premier League final. Shakib copped a blow from Thisara Perera while batting then, and it was later revealed that he had suffered a fracture.

Consequently, he was given the no-objection certificate to play in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL), but the all-rounder had featured in only couple of games for the Sunrisers Hyderabad before joining the national camp.
