Injury woes for Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan do not appear to cease as the cricketer sustained another injury during the ongoing Test clash between West Indies and Bangladesh at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.
Shakib suffered from an injury on his left thigh during the second day of the first Test on Friday. The cricketer was also dealing with his groin injury and had just come into action after just recovering from his injury. He had picked up the injury during the three-match ODI series against West Indies.
The pain from his freshly incurred injury was evident on his face in the morning of the second day while fielding, which forced him to walk out of the field. Shakib scored 68 runs in the first innings of Bangladesh.
“Having recovered from his previous groin injury ahead of the first Test and successfully managing to bat in the Bangladesh first innings as well as send down six overs, all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has suffered a strain in a different region of his left thigh while fielding on day two,” Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) said in a statement on Friday.
“The injury was confirmed by an MRI scan this morning. The BCB medical team will continue to treat and review his progress over the course of the first Test.”
The match marks the comeback Test of Shakib Al Hasan after the ban imposed on him was lifted by ICC in October last year.
