Shakib Al Hasan is set to miss the ODI series against the West Indies, according to BCB president Nazmul Hassan, who made the statement following a board meeting on Wednesday in Dhaka. Shakib was previously chosen for all three formats, but it now appears that his tour will be limited to the T20s.

During their 2-0 Test series loss to the West Indies last week, Shakib served as the team’s captain for the first time in three years. Mominul Haque resigned from the role just before the tour, and Shakib was appointed captain in his place.

Shakib Al Hasan Will Miss The Series Because The Matches Are Not Part Of The ODI Super League

Shakib’s absence from the ODIs is most likely due to the fact that they are not a part of the ODI Super League. His replacement in the ODI team has reportedly been picked as Taijul Islam. Mohammad Saifuddin, Shohidul Islam, and Yasir Ali, who were members of the white-ball teams, have already been ruled out of the series.

“I heard that he [Shakib] had earlier [before going to the West Indies] told Jalal Yunus that he might not play the ODIs. I guess if I talk to him today or tomorrow then I will get to know about it clearly. But he did not notify the board officially yet. But you can consider this as an official notice as he verbally relayed the message to Jalal Bhai,” said Hassan.

Mehidy Hasan Miraz, who was in the Test and ODI squad, is set to join the T20I team as well as Taskin Ahmed, who was only slated to participate in the ODIs.

Before the ODIs on July 10, 13, and 16, Bangladesh plays three T20 Internationals on July 2, 3, and 7.
