Shakib was supposed to lead the Tigers in the India T20Is but was later replaced in the squad by left-arm spinner Taijul Islam with Mahmudullah named captain in Shakib’s stead

Bangladesh cricket team head coach Russell Domingo has lamented the absence of Test and T20I captain Shakib al Hasan from the India series, comprising three T20Is and two Test matches.

Shakib Tuesday was banned by the International Cricket Council for two years, with one year of that suspended, for failing to report three corrupt approaches to take part in illegal activities.

Shakib was supposed to lead the Tigers in the India T20Is but was later replaced in the squad by left-arm spinner Taijul Islam with Mahmudullah named captain in Shakib’s stead.

"Anybody will miss Shakib...but he made a mistake and is paying the price for it," Domingo told the media at Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi Friday.

"It's very tricky because Shakib bats at No 3 and often opens the bowling or bowls first change.

"So you got to decide 'whether I want to replace the batsman or I replace the bowler' because it's very difficult to replace both. Not many players provide you both skills."

"I don't think there is anyone earmarked to specifically do Shakib's job."

The second and third T20Is will be held on November 7 and 10 in Rajkot and Nagpur respectively.

The two Test matches will take place from November 14-18 and November 22-26 in Indore and Kolkata accordingly.
