On the day before the start of Dhaka Test, Bangladesh Cricket Board announced that Shadman would be missing.

“Bangladesh opening batsman Shadman Islam has been ruled out of the second and final Test against the West Indies,” a BCB release stated.

“Shadman has been making a good recovery from the hip injury incurred during an awkward fall while fielding on day four of the first of the two ICC Test Championship matches. However, the BCB Medical Team has suggested resting him for the second Test until he is fully fit to resume playing.

“The batsman will leave the team Bio-security Bubble and will be under the surveillance and treatment of the BCB Medical Team as he undergoes rehabilitation.”

Shadman made his second half-century (59 runs) in the first innings on his return to the team. He could not repeat the same form in the second innings where he fell for 42-ball 5.

Soumya Sarkar or Saif Hassan may replace Shadman in the XI. Soumya, who was not included in preliminary squad for Tests, was recalled as cover for Shakib Al Hasan, who has been ruled out with thigh injury.
