He flew to London to consult a specialist before returning to Dhaka where he began rehab. Bangladesh selectors will also get an update from allrounder <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/shakib-al-hasan/">Shakib Al Hasan</a>, currently nursing a finger injury, before naming the squad for the Windies series.
