Shakib to play South Africa Test?
CRICDOT DESK : The discussion started a few days before the IPL auction. Everyone assumed that Shakib Al Hasan is going to get a team in IPL at a very good price this time. That is why he does not want to play a Test series against South Africa for the country. Because, IPL will run at that time. Did the BCBO give him the green signal? However, no statement has been received from Shakib in this regard yet.
Now the reality is that no IPL team has bought Shakib this time. As a result, there is no reason why the world’s best all-rounder should not play in the Test against South Africa. He also took a leave of absence from the New Zealand tour last January. The family is also in the country now. In such a situation, there is no reason to take leave again. However, no one is yet sure whether Shakib will play Tests or not.

Meanwhile, the country’s renowned coach Nazmul Abedin Fahim is hoping that Shakib will play all the matches for Bangladesh. Shakib’s Fortune Barisal has reached the final of the ongoing BPL. The BCB coach is the mentor of that team. He expressed this hope in a meeting with journalists in Mirpur on Wednesday (February 18).
Asked whether Shakib would play Tests in South Africa, Nazmul Abedin Fahim said: My advice would be to play all the matches. Whenever he is available, he should play all the games of Bangladesh. That’s what I want. ”
However, he is also in favor of giving leave to Shakib for rest. The country’s top coach said, “His body should be fine. You also need to consider where to take a break for physical reasons. Playing in three formats at this age – because he is a batsman who will probably run, will also bowl. It will not be easy to take that pressure. So you have to understand the importance of the match and play. ‘
