Bangladesh all-rounder infected with Covid, Shakib Al Hasan, out of Sri Lanka test | Cricket News


DHAKA: Bangladesh’s versatile player Shakib Al Hasan tested positive for Covid-19 on Tuesday and has been ruled out of this week’s first test against Sri Lanka, the country’s cricket authorities have announced.
Shakib returned from the United States on Tuesday and underwent PCR and rapid antigen testing as a prerequisite to join the team ahead of the series.
“Both tests came back positive. He will now recover by self-isolation and will be retested in due course. He has been disqualified from the first test,” the Bangladesh Cricket Board said in a statement.
The Sri Lanka cricket team is already in Bangladesh for the two Test series, which will kick off at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong on May 15.
The second test will take place in Dhaka from May 23-27.
Shakib also missed Bangladesh’s previous Test series against South Africa due to a family emergency.
