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."

Shakib the best all-rounder in the world!

He's important for us!! once the great Kallis gracefully leaves the game, our Shakib will dominate the all-rounder rankings for the next 10 years inshaallah. If he can correct his little mistakes then all I can see is greatness from him already underrated by many fans and experts mainly because he's Bangladeshi playing for a weaker team. We know you critics are worried about Bangladesh's rise in Cricket which is good to see and yes we are still a weaker team but the improvement or trend from years 2000 till now is evident and trust me, it will only get better. Its almost time the cubs are starting to turn into tigers mark my words on that one.

@legaleagle: you must have really, really, really short memory, or maybe selective memory! Maybe you thought the fans here do not actually follow cricket. You asked "when did Pakistan lose in 3/4 days"?? In the most recent series Pakistan played, they lost in 4 days, by a Whopping 209 runs to Sri Lanka. This was in June of this year, if you are having a difficult time remembering. In the first innings of the Galle test, Pakistan was shot out for a mere 100 runs on a pitch where Sri Lanka piled on over 450 runs. BD at least made it to day 5 in both the matches, and made it close on the first test. WI players were sledging BD batsmen like school boys on day 5, weren't they supposed to steamroll BD? Why was the sledging necessary? WI knew very well they won a game they should could have easily lost in the first test. I am sure BD made you sweat a little bit too!:-) Next time, actually try to follow your own losses, before coming in here and criticizing BD.

That injury just like I've expected has gone bad hope he gets that operation as soon as possible because we don't want to lose him for a long duration.

@legal:- look a bit jealous Bangladesh yes ordinary team Shakib stats and rankings don't lie. The same player that scored an easy 84 at the World T20 against Pakistan, a test 100 and 5 wickets against the same team and a 100 in your own country so nice try :)

I think we need a specialist batsman to replace Shakib. I will advise to watch two practice matches against WI and pick one based on his performance. Please do not include Junaid, Imrul, Nazimuddin or Rakibul. Go tigers.

Posted by Legaleagle on (November 26, 2012, 17:13 GMT)

@ Tanvir0452- when did Pakistan lose in 3/4 days? You must be dreaming. Even with all the difficulties, Pakistan is the only team in the subcontinent that is way ahead of India and Sri Lanka. Not going to include Bangladesh because they don't exists in competition to Pakistan.

Bangladesh are simply not a test playing nation of any credibility. Thier batsmen are not test class west indies are although improving are not one of the best test playing nations at the monent and look at difference at thier batting averages compared to banglabesh.

Posted by ExtremeSpeed on (November 26, 2012, 15:48 GMT)

lol I totally agree with someone that said Shakib is ordinary nice joke at least we can safely hold International matches and have a far better future in Cricket. Anyway I agree with Bangladesh fans that Shakib will be a huge loss I knew that injury will get worse somepoint. Without him, I don't think we have a chance now.

Posted by Legaleagle on (November 26, 2012, 14:20 GMT)

Pakistan is not even playing!! If you are talking about India then that's NOT my team.

Bangladesh cricket God will be absent in next two ODI's. Its really painful. But we pray for his early recovery so that he take part in the rest of the matches of the series.

Posted by AzAb12754 on (November 26, 2012, 11:36 GMT)

The injury he's carrying for months now is starting to get worse which is sad news really because he's our best player but what he did in that last test match on the field with an injury for so long and immediately batting superbly just missing on a 100 playing a unnecessary shot just shows his class despite the pain and tiredness. Wish him well and on a healthy recovery!

I would like to request BCC Mr.Akram please do includeing Allauddin babu, Mominul,Enamal, Anamul in ODI & T20. hopefully they will better than others.because they do good perfrom recently. Naeem , Shariar should be remove.Abul Hasan should batting test numer 3- to 6.Wish you all the best BD team.

Legaleagle....oil your own machine..whether sakib is mediocre or exceptional, it is not of your issue..instead, there are a lot of bd supporters to think about that issue...at least he has some personality and respect for others but have a look at your players, react in a way which shows no respect for other teams but still loses a test matches in 4 days...not 4, approximately 3 days....consider the test stat of last 2/3 years...how many test matches you taken in 5 th day....just the performance of odi cant express the excellence of a team...i admit that still we have the difference with the big teams but we are playing very few test matches and after long periods....you will say that i am also making a common excuse but it is true...now, we have some very good players and they are making contributions but the common problems are bad shot selection and too aggressiveness which are happening because of playing very few matches, but why your team still losing so many matches in 3/4 days

A big loss to the team! Sunil Narine will be quite handy in t20s, and given the nature of the wicket Bangladeshi bowlers need to bowl on a good line and length varying the pace only unlike West Indian bowlers who have good pace and kit hit it hard to make the bowl and come up to the chest where it becomes difficult to execute a shot. Unless Bangladesh prepare green tracks for domestic cricket, they are going to learn nothing. In ODIs it will be the bowling to separate the two teams.

Posted by AzAb12754 on (November 25, 2012, 16:44 GMT)

Don't understand why Bangladesh management didn't prepare turning tracks, otherwise Shakib wouldn't have bowled that many overs they never learn. Without him, we're virtually nothing I really hope Tamim doesn't continue to be a misery come the one-day series.

Posted by Legaleagle on (November 25, 2012, 16:32 GMT)

Good riddance!! He is a mediocre player just like all the other Bangladesh players. His presence or absence will have NO impact on the outcome of this series just like the test series.

Inshallah, West Indies will steamroll Bangladesh in ODIs also. INSHALLAH!!

Posted by SUMON_CSE on (November 25, 2012, 16:08 GMT)

I've really got shocked to heard the news. ODI mainly depends on all rounder like SAKIB but he is injured. All of the player of Bangladesh have to determine they have enough ability to win the upcoming game.

Posted by   on (November 25, 2012, 16:04 GMT)

oh Sakib we'll miss you greatly!!!!!!

Posted by Dipssy on (November 25, 2012, 15:52 GMT)

Bangladesh have left arm spinner Abdur Razzak who is in top form in domestic cricket...He will fill up the gap of Shakib in bowling and other batsman also played good in ODI...So I dont think bangladesh will face big problem without him...

Posted by   on (November 25, 2012, 12:44 GMT)

Very bad news and a real tough chance for Bangladesh to win the first 2 ODIs. Best of Luck Bangladesh and Shakib please get well soon!!!

Posted by   on (November 25, 2012, 12:07 GMT)

His presence will not prevent West Indies from doing what we came here to do. Bangladesh and West Indies are in a similar predicament, the difference however is that West Indies is moving to the height of cricket where it truly belongs and Bangladesh is trying to make a statement about its legetimacy in the game. We wish Bangladesh well but West Indies is climbing and we will clear all that is in our way... "Lets rise WI"... Gale, Sammy, Marlon and many more are coming

See what happens when you overuse him? if you make these pitches flat then you will spend an awful lot of time on the field so more likely of getting injuries which has unfortunately happened. You can't always rely on Shakib and put all the pressure on him, he doesn't deserve this now we're going to lose 5-0 cause of those silly pitches that was made. Tamim almost had a serious injury I hope Bangladesh management finally learns on their strengths and not their fears. Prepare turning pitches so there would be an exciting game no highways. Nasir Hossain is a talent his calmness and sensibility at such a young age is something the other Bangladesh batsman can learn from but I doubt they do.

By the way, Shakib is really great player. Could have been even better had he played for a team that wins more often. Good luck buddy and get well soon.

Posted by realist1 on (November 25, 2012, 10:43 GMT)

It will be 5 - Nil with or without him. Bangladesh had their chance in the first test. They blew it, now it will be alll down hill from here.

Posted by aalhasankh on (November 25, 2012, 8:50 GMT)

Shakib is the only Test standard player in the Bangladesh cricket team.He needs at least four more players of his standard to take Bangladesh to the next level.He is being over worked ruthlessly and may end up exhausted prematurely.His left knee is already affected and needs surgery because of bowling too much and now the right shin.What does he have to learn from people like Shivnarayan?Do they have to bowl like him for two continuous days and then come to rescue the team with his bat within minutes of finishing with the ball?Give Shakib some relief and some respect.All he has got so far from the cricket bosses of Bangladesh is humiliation and advice to be like this,that or the other.He was dismissed from the captain's post and given a public dressing down by the then Cricket chief Mr.Kamal.Give Shakib a break and lots of respect.

Posted by   on (November 25, 2012, 8:14 GMT)

I've always said you shouldn't have prepared such wickets now we're going to lose the ODI series now as without him, we'll have no chance oh great.

Posted by   on (November 25, 2012, 7:04 GMT)

pathetic for whole country....get well soon shakib

Posted by   on (November 25, 2012, 6:01 GMT)

Very very sad news for Whole Bangladesh team....

Posted by   on (November 25, 2012, 5:57 GMT)

Bad news for Bangladesh fan. Hope he will get well soon.
