It is not yet certain whether Shakib Al Hasan will be able to play in the Chattogram Test. However, Sri Lanka have a plan in place to deal with the world-class all-rounder.
Shakib is in the squad for the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka. He came to the country from the United States to play in this series. This time the series won’t have the problem of bio-bubble and repeated covid test, but since Shakib is from outside the country, he had to undergo covid test before joining the team. Shakib’s sample test was positive.
In the Chattogram Test, therefore, uncertainty loomed over his participation. Bangladesh also included Mosaddek Hossain as an alternative to Shakib. But before the start of the match, Shakib tested negative again. As a result, he is now likely to play in the first match. However, Shakib's game depends on his physical and mental condition.
Although there is uncertainty about Shakib's participation, Sri Lanka have made a special plan for him. Because he is the best all-rounder of that team and one of the most important cricketers. Shakib has the ability to demoralize the opponent in both the role of ball and bat.
"When Shakib was there, we had plans for him," said Sri Lankan captain Dimuth Karunaratne. "And yet we have plans for that. He is one of the best all-rounders. We will give our best and let's see how it goes.”
