Which is inconsistent with the character of the left-handed all-rounder. Before leaving for Dubai on March 8, he told the media that he was not in a good physical and mental condition to play international cricket at the moment.

On March 12, another Shakib appeared in front of the media at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Mirpur. BCB president Nazmul Hasan stood by Papon and said he was going to play in South Africa.
