NEW DELHI: Injured Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is afraid his finger might never fully recover from an infection despite a planned second surgery in Australia this month. Shakib’s finger is still affected by a bacterial infection, which is reducing the chances of a full recovery.
The talismanic all-rounder failed to play in the final as defeIndiaated the Tigers off the last ball of the tournament. Doctors cleared a large amount of pus from his finger and asked him to go for a second surgery once the infection cleared.
He was sidelined for two months before he returned to the field in March. There is no chance of soft bone getting repaired again, it will not be completely okay, but with surgery they will put the hand into a shape from where I will be able hold the bat and continue playing cricket,” he said.
