Gemcon Khulna allrounder Shakib Al Hasan has left the team due to a family emergency, and he will not be available for the final of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup 2020, Nafis Iqbal, the manager of the team confirmed the development.
The allrounder is set to fly for Minnesota to see his ailing father-in-law who has been suffering from health complications for a long time.
“Shakib’s father-in-law is ill, and he has to see him. After the last game, Shakib informed me that the condition of his father-in-law is critical,” Nafis told in a video statement sent to the media.
Meanwhile, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is planning to hold a national team practice camp in early January ahead of the home series against West Indies. It’s not clear whether Shakib will join the camp or not.
