Bangladesh’s captain sustained an injury to his left index finger while batting against Sri Lanka.

Shakib Al Hasan, the captain of Bangladesh, has been ruled out of the last World Cup 2023 match against Australia in Pune on November 11 due to a fracture in his left index finger. He will fly back to Dhaka today, while the rest of the team members will head from Delhi to Pune. Anamul Haque will join Shakib, having received ICC Event Technical Committee approval for his replacement.

Shakib sustained the injury on Monday while playing an innings of 82 runs against Sri Lanka in Delhi. According to physio Bayjedul Islam Khan, Shakib got injured in the early phase of his batting innings.

Bayjedul said, “Shakib Al Hasan sustained an injury to his left index finger at the beginning of his innings, but he continued batting with strapping and pain-relief medication.” “After the game, an emergency X-ray was conducted in Delhi, confirming a fracture in the left PIP joint. He is expected to recover in three to four weeks. He will depart today for Bangladesh to begin his rehabilitation.”

The injury kept Shakib Al Hasan in a dramatic situation for 24 hours. Yesterday, during Bangladesh’s victory against Sri Lanka by three wickets, he initiated an appeal, leading to Angelo Mathews becoming the first batsman to be given out on a time-out in international cricket. After the game, Shakib Al Hasan expressed feeling as if he was in a battle on the field.

Bangladesh has lost six out of eight matches in this World Cup campaign, knocking them out of the semifinals. However, they still hope to qualify for the Champions Trophy in 2025, emphasizing finishing in the top eight of the table. Shakib’s performance in the World Cup has been disappointing, having scored only one run in three out of six innings before making 82 runs against Sri Lanka.
