Ace Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib al Hasan returned to the Tigers’ practice session at Cooper Associates County Ground in Taunton after taking rest in the last few days.

Shakib took part in the warm-up session and also underwent fielding sessions. 

The left-hander then batted in the nets for more than half an hour before bowling in the nets for a while.

Shakib is in tremendous form with the bat for Bangladesh as he scored 121, 64 and 75 in his last three matches in the World Cup against England, New Zealand and South Africa respectively.

The southpaw totaled 260 runs in his three innings in the tournament so far with an average of 86.66 and strike rate of 95.94.

Bangladesh lost that match by 106 runs, despite Shakib’s brilliant 121.

Before their fourth match against Sri Lanka, it was revealed that Shakib has a grade one tear in his left thigh and needed rest for a few days.

It seems that the all-rounder is back to full fitness as he practiced intensely Saturday in Taunton.

Bangladesh will play their next game against the West Indies Monday.
