A day after being elected as the Member of Parliament for the first time, Shakib al Hasan turned up at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur as he gears up for the upcoming Bangladesh Premier League, starting on January 19.

Shakib, still the all format captain of Bangladesh, earned a landslide victory at Magura-1 constituency to be elected as MP.

With "Boat symbol" as an Awami League candidate he pulled 185,388 votes.

His nearest candidate Advocate Rezaul Hasan of Bangladesh Congress got 45,933 votes.

But he did not stay long in Magura following the elections as his first challenge is to prove his fitness after recovering from the finger injury, sustained during the World Cup.

He was ruled out of the home and away series against New Zealand because of this injury.

He was seen entering into the indoor facilities of Mirpur this afternoon.

Before his entrance, his childhood mentor Nazmul Abedeen Fahim also stepped into the indoor facilities.

Shakib worked with Fahim on his batting in the midst of the World Cup.

It is believed he would further work with Fahim to get rid of the technical glitches that hampered his batting of late.
