Shakib Al Hasan, who was slated to return to Bangladesh’s Twenty20 side for the series against Sri Lanka, has hinted that he may be forced to give the series a miss as his finger injury has not fully healed. So, it is unlikely that I will play in the T20 series,” Shakib was quoted by ESPNCricinfo. Bangladesh’s star all-rounder had picked up the injury on January 27 in Bangladesh’s tri-series final loss to Sri Lanka, which also ruled him out for the Test matches . Bangladesh will host Sri Lanka in the first Twenty20 International on February 15 had released their 15-man squad for the series on Saturday. Shakib’s probable absence will be a huge blow for the home team that have beaten Sri Lanka only once in their five matches this year, including three 50-over games and two Test matches.
