ICC World Cup 2019: Shakib Al Hasan Is A Doubtful Starter For The Clash Against Sri Lanka
The last few months of Shakib Al Hasan is all about his availability for the team. The flamboyant cricketer from Bangladesh has suffered a finger injury. It kept him away from the team in the international matches as well. However, he made a successful recovery from it and finally got into the playing XI but, now, once again he sustained an injury.
The flamboyant cricketer of Bangladesh has always been their major asset and always performed for his country. He is one of their consistent performers in the current ICC World Cup 2019 and also broken a rare record of scoring 5000 runs and picking over 250 wickets.
We are not yet sure of Shakib Al Hasan:
Shakib Al Hasan sustained during the match against England in Cardiff on Saturday. However, a decision on the severity of the strain and consequently, his availability for today’s match will only be taken once the scan is reviewed by a radiologist in the morning today.
Shakib went for a scan yesterday evening, and Bangladesh team technical manager Khaled Mahmud said that it was gathered from an image of the scan that there could be a Grade 1 strain resulting from the injury
“It looks like a Grade 1 strain,” Mahmud informed yesterday. “We are not yet sure whether he can play tomorrow [Tuesday]. It doesn’t look so serious. Shakib was fine yesterday, but seemed to be feeling it a bit more today.”
However, during his team’s practice session at Bristol ahead of Sri Lanka clash the premier allrounder did not bat or bowl raising concerns on his fitness. So far, Shakib Al Hasan is the highest run-getter in the tournament with 260 runs in three matches and has also taken three wickets.
All in all, it would be a major setback for the team if Shakib Al Hasan fails to recover in time. They will be locking horns with Sri Lanka in their next clash, which is set to be played on June 11th. Yet another issue for them is that rain is in the forecast for the match.
