Shakib Al Hasan not to play in the forthcoming two-match Test series

The Bangladesh Cricket Board announced on Thursday, February 22, that Shakib Al Hasan has chosen not to play in the forthcoming two-match Test series against Sri Lanka. This is a fresh development. Shakib's exclusion from the white-ball series against Sri Lanka prompted the decision.

The chairman of BCB's cricket operations, Jalal Yunus, disclosed that Shakib will miss the Test series, which is a component of the third cycle of the ICC World Test Championship. Shakib appears to be taking a break from playing for the Bangladesh national team, even though he had a comeback in the Bangladesh Premier League, scoring 249 runs in 11 games. "Shakib requested a break from the whole Sri Lankan series because he was unwilling to play international cricket. Yunus told Cricbuzz, "I think his eyes are fine right now, but I feel like he wants a break so he can come back to international cricket fully fit."
