Shakib confirms to play the second Test


CRICDOT DESK : After the first two ODIs of the three-match series in South Africa, Shakib Al Hasan found out that his son, daughter, mother and mother-in-law had been hospitalized in Dhaka.

In such a family crisis, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) also arranged for Shakib to return home in an emergency.

But in the interest of the country, Shakib stayed in Africa for the third ODI. Bangladesh got a taste of winning the historic series in Africa after 20 years by winning the last ODI by 9 wickets.

After the ODI series, Shakib returned to the country to be with his family. When Shakib returned to the country before the two-Test series, there was uncertainty about his performance in the Test series.

However, rumors are circulating on Tuesday that Shakib will play in the second Test of the series, which starts on April 6 in Port Elizabeth.
