Shakib Al Hasan ruled out of 2023 ICC World Cup

Shakib Al Hasan ruled out of 2023 ICC World Cup. Due to an injury to his left index finger, Bangladeshi captain Shakib Al Hasan was declared ineligible for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 on Tuesday.

Shakib was hurt yesterday in Delhi during Bangladesh’s batting match versus Sri Lanka. The left-hander’s fracture was verified by an X-ray following the Sri Lanka game, thus he will miss Bangladesh’s last tournament match against Australia in Pune on November 11.

Bayjedul Islam Khan, the national team’s physiotherapist, provided more information regarding Shakib’s injuries.

“Shakib sustained a blow to his left index finger early in the batting game, but he persevered by using painkillers and supportive tape,” the statement read.

“After the game, he had an emergency X-ray in Delhi, which verified the left PIP joint fracture. Three to four weeks is the estimated time of recovery. He’s going to start his rehabilitation today and head to Bangladesh.

It should be mentioned that Shakib helped his team defeat Sri Lanka by three wickets with a match-winning 82 off 65 balls, which included 12 fours and two sixes. Additionally, he achieved 2/57 figures with the ball. He was also named Player of the Match for his overall effort.

Earlier, after becoming the first player to be ‘timed out’ in international cricket at the World Cup on Monday, Sri Lankan all-rounder Angelo Mathews demanded “justice” from the ICC and dubbed Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan “a cheat” on social media.

Within two minutes of a wicket falling, a dismissed batter should be prepared to face a ball, but Mathews was not.

When Mathews’ helmet strap broke, he was prepared to strike. Shakib filed an appeal and the umpires decided that the hitter had timed out while the former captain of Sri Lanka called for a new helmet.
