Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan left the country for the United States to be by the side of his child-bearing wife Umme Ahmed Shishir. Although he could not play in the upcoming series for the national team, he wished his teammates good luck.
However, the world’s best all-rounder has not commented on the issue of not being named in the central contract and withdrawing from the Test series for the IPL.
Exactly 50 days ago, Shakib returned to the country with a smile. However, this time, he left the country with a controversial and sullen face. “I will miss the game for Bangladesh. It would be nice to play in the upcoming series. But there is nothing to do. Good luck for the Bangladesh team,” he said.
Meanwhile, a few days ago, the country’s sports arena was vocal on the issue of Shakib. After getting a team in the IPL, the fans criticized him for not playing the Test tour of Sri Lanka. The question also arose about Shakib’s “dedication to the country”.
As a result, Shakib avoided the media at the airport. However, he did not open his mouth on the controversial issue but wished the team good luck for the upcoming series.
