In a big blow to Bangladesh Cricket, all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has decided to miss the New Zealand series. Notably, the veteran cricketer was initially named in the squad for the upcoming tour despite informing the board on the uncertainty of his participation.

However, the Bangladesh Cricket Board has granted him leave.

“We have accepted his (Shakib) request,” confirmed BCB President Nazmul Hassan. “We have been saying this for long time that we have no objection if a player wants to take a break or rest, but it has to be informed officially”, added Hassan.

Uncapped all-rounder Fazle Mahmud to replace Shakib in Test squad

Uncapped all-rounder Fazle Mahmud has been named as the veteran’s replacement for the Test series. Notably, he was the leading run-scorer in Bangladesh’s domestic league - National Cricket League this season.

“From January, if anyone wants a break, he has to inform us in advance so that we can prepare alternatives,” the BCB President added.

Bangladesh Squad for New Zealand Tests: Mominul Haque (c), Shadman Islam, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Mushfiqur Rahim, Fazle Mahmud, Liton Das (wk), Nurul Hasan (wk), Yasir Ali, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taijul Islam, Taskin Ahmed, Abu Jayed, Ebadot Hossain, Shoriful Islam, Khaled Ahmed, Shohidul Islam, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Mohammad Naim
