Shakib Al Hasan, the Bangladesh allrounder, has been ruled out of the first two of five ODIs against West Indies because of a shin injury. Shakib went for a scan after the fourth day of the second Test in Khulna and was diagnosed with a stress reaction of the right tibia.
"We have decided that he [Shakib Al Hasan] will take no further part in the second Test match and will miss the two ODIs in Khulna," Bangladesh's physio Vibhav Singh said. "We will review his scan report with an orthopedic specialist in Dhaka to decide the best management plan for Shakib."
Shakib had a huge workload during the Khulna Test, bowling 52 overs in West Indies' innings and scoring 97 on the fourth day before he was dismissed in the final over.
Bangladesh haven't named a replacement yet because of the unexpectedness of the scan results. "We haven't decided upon a replacement," chief selector Akram Khan told ESPNcricinfo. "We will announce the name in a day or two."
