Shakib Al Hasan’s return to competitive cricket has come to an abrupt end after a one-year ban and he will miss the ongoing Bangabandhu T20 Cup with his in-laws in the United States.
“It’s shocking news for Shakib that his Father-in-Law was seriously ill and had to leave suddenly yesterday. He left the hotel last night and today he has a flight,” Nafees Iqbal. The manager of Jamon Khulna said in a statement on Tuesday.
With West Indies expected to come to Bangladesh for the visit in January. Shakib’s exhibition was centered around before the homegrown T20 competition and the all-rounder disappointed. Particularly with the bat as he finished nine matches with no champion presentation. Scoring only 204 runs in 34 overs – an economy rate of 6 and taking six wickets. But his contribution with the bat was equal. He scored 110 runs in nine innings, averaging 12.22 with a strike rate of 120.27.
Through the tournament, he has struggled against speed and spin alike, and has been dismissed on six occasions, attempting to clear the ropes. “I don’t think there’s a problem with hand-eye coordination,” Nazmul Abedin, his childhood patron.
Over issues with his bat swing, the coach is bothered with confidence. He said, “He tried to bat at different places, maybe he wanted to see where he fit. He needed to stay on the wicket longer because it would help him get his confidence back. I think Is that his confidence is a bit sluggish. Due to his performance in the tournament, he said.
Shakib resumed cricketing activities at the BKSP Institute from 5 September as he was making his return to international cricket with an ICC ban and ended with a tour to Sri Lanka. However, the training camp run under the eyes of two childhood coaches, Najmul Abedin and Mohammad Salauddin, came to an abrupt end after the tour of Sri Lanka was canceled.
Despite his impeccable performance in the T20 tournament, Najmul is not too worried. We are confident on Shakiq that he will perform well in upcoming Test and ODI’s. As we concentrated mostly practicing to achieve higher points in Test or long format matches. Said Nazmul Abedin.
