Shakib, who was injured while training ahead of the World Cup preparation match, was in doubt about playing the match against Afghanistan. Now that doubt is over. The Tiger team leader will play from the first match in the World Cup. Team Director Khaled Mahmud Sujan told an online media.
Khaled Mahmud Sujan said, ‘Shakib’s injury is not serious at all. He will be fully fit before the first match of the World Cup.’
The entire team went to practice to prepare themselves before the first warm-up match against Sri Lanka in Guwahati. Shakib was also there. At one point, the team members played football. And the world’s best all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan got injured while playing football. That was the bad news for the Tiger camp.
The Tiger captain did not play in the warm-up match against Sri Lanka due to an injury. Mostafizur Rahman and out-of-form Nazmul Hossain Shanto were also rested on this day. However, there was no problem in the team. Bangladesh won the match without Shakib under the leadership of Mehdi Hasan Miraj.
