 Shakib had applied for paternity leave as he is expecting his third child next month

All-rounder Shakib al Hasan has been granted a leave from Bangladesh’s tour of New Zealand scheduled to take place in March-April this year. Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) cricket operations chairman Akram Khan confirmed that the board has approved the leave application of Bangladesh’s ace cricketer.

 Shakib had applied for paternity leave as he is expecting his third child next month.

 Bangladesh in the tour of New Zealand are set to play three ODIs and as many T20Is. The matches will be played at Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington, Hamilton, Napier and Auckland.

“He (Shakib) had written to the board asking for leave during the New Zealand tour. The board has granted him the leave,” Akram told the media on Tuesday.

After serving a one-year ban imposed by International Cricket Council for failing to report corrupt approach from the bookmakers, Shakib made a flying comeback to international cricket finishing as the man of the Series in the three-match ODI series against West Indies last month. The left-arm all-rounder had finished the series with 113 runs and six wickets in three matches.

 Shakib then made a comeback in the Bangladesh Test squad with the Chattogoram Test against the same opponents but picked an injury on day two that forced him to stay out of action for the remainder of the match. Shakib, who scored 68 runs with the bat, could bowl only six overs in the first innings of the visitors. 

The all-rounder has been ruled out from the second and the final Test of the series scheduled to start at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Thursday. He is already granted to leave the bio-bubble, a pre-requisite for players to take part in the international matches in the era of Covid-19 pandemic.
