CRICDOT DESK : The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced the squad for the tour of South Africa, leaving Shakib Al Hasan behind. But just before leaving for the tour, Shakib suddenly left for Dubai on Sunday.

Before leaving the country, let me tell you – I do not think it is possible for me to play international cricket at this moment (in South Africa).

The country’s cricket board is angry over Shakib’s sudden departure to Dubai on a private tour without informing anyone. That is why the BCB gave Shakib a rest from all forms of cricket till April 30.

Jalal Yunus, chairman of the BCB’s cricket operations committee, confirmed the matter to reporters on Wednesday. He said Shakib has been rested from all forms of cricket till April 30.

Jalal Yunus said, “We want Shakib to play in all versions of cricket.” But he has sought rest from the South Africa series. It would not be right to pressure him. We have taken this decision considering that.
