He said it wasn’t possible for him to play but in the natural tendon, some others insisted him to play in the semi-final. We even didn’t know that Shakib Al Hasan was going to participate in the Asia Cup,” Nazmul quoted.
“I instantly said him to go back. And that was the last time I talked to him before returning to Dhaka. I visited him in the Apollo Hospital; checked and rechecked all of his medicine. Shakib said he wanted to go to London before reaching the USA. But I heard he went to Australia. And I asked him about the condition,” he added.
