Bangladesh vs West Indies 2021: Shakib-al-Hasan Named in 18-Man Squad

Bangladesh have named Shakib-al-Hasan in their 18-man squad for the two match Test series against West Indies. Shakib had to limp off midway during the third ODI against West Indies due to an injury.  Along with him squad also has fast bowler Hasan Mahmud and batsman Yasir Ali. Hasan played his first T20 for Bangladesh against Zimbabwe last year and his 50 over international debut in the series against West Indies this month, while Yasir is yet to represent the country in any format.

A subsequent medical scan did not reveal a major problem, paving the way for a comeback to the Test side. "He batted in the net today and looked okay. We will observe him again when he bowls in the nets. We will not rush him in the first Test if he is not fully fit," said chief selector Minhajul Abdein.

Shakib was previously suspended for one year up until October for failing to report corruption. Pacer Taskin Ahmed, who last played a Test in September 2017, was also recalled to the team. The first Test will be played in Chittagong while the second starts in Dhaka on February 11.
