SA vs BAN: Shakib Al Hasan OUT of 3rd ODI?

In a huge blow for the visiting Bangladesh team, premier all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is very much unlikely to be available for the rest of the South Africa tour after a number of his family members have been hospitalised due to multiple ailments. Shakib has already left the Protean nation in order to return back home ahead of the SA vs BAN 3rd ODI match on Wednesday. This is a big setback for the visitors as the 34-year-old senior cricketer was the Man of the Match during Bangladesh’s first-ever win on South African soil as they registered an incredible 38-run victory in the first ODI.

In the first ODI game against South Africa, Shakib Al Hasan scored a brilliant knock of 77 runs off just 64 balls that included a total of 7 fours and 3 sixes to help Bangladesh reach a massive first innings total of 314 for 7 in their 50 overs.
