Bangladesh ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is on the road to recovery for their next match against West Indies which will be played next Monday.

Shakib felt discomfort while batting against England during their World Cup match at Cardiff on Saturday. The southpaw scored 121 runs in that match but Bangladesh lost by 86 runs.

The left-hander took a day-off from practice on Monday ahead of their Sri Lanka game. The scan report revealed that he was suffering from left thigh strain and it was termed as a grade one injury.

Shakib’s appearance was highly unlikely against Sri Lanka game which was eventually washed out on Tuesday. Bangladesh have five more days in their hand before their next game and it is expected that their key player will be fit before their next tie. 

“Shakib picked up a little injury, as you all saw in that game against England. But he fought and battled on, and played extremely well with an injury. We're very optimistic about the treatment he is getting this week and the way he is recovering, he can play in that next game against West Indies,” informed Bangladesh head coach Steve Rhodes after the match against Sri Lanka was washed out in Bristol on Tuesday.

Shakib has been in brilliant form in the World Cup with the bat so far and he is currently the highest scorer in the tournament with 260 runs at an average of 86.66 in three matches.

He scored 75 runs against South Africa in the first match and was adjudged player of the match where Bangladesh won the match by 21 runs. The 32-year old scored 64 against New Zealand where Bangladesh lost narrowly by two wickets and scored a brilliant 121 against hosts England in the third match while chasing 387.
