Shakib returns to training
Dhaka, Jan 8: Banglsadesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has returned to the country after spending some quality time with his family in the United States. The star all-rounder was supposed to return on January 9 but flew back on Wednesday and practised at the Sher-e-Bangla tiol Cricket Stadium on Thursday.
Shakib’s sabbatical started after the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), when he attended to some commitments here before flying to the US on December 28.
Shakib’s wife Umme Ahmed Shishir had given birth to a daughter, their first child, at a hospital in New York in November last year, during Zimbabwe’s limited-overs series against Bangladesh. He started for the US immediately after getting the news of Shishir’s hospitalisation and received the news of his daughter’s birth on the way. He then came back for the BPL. Shakib was in a lighter mood as he spoke to jourlists on Thursday about his daughter, Alai Hasan Abri, who is about two months old now. IANS
