Bangladesh head coach Steve Rhodes said that all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan of battled against England with an injury in his left thigh that eventually forced him to have some niggles though he insisted he will be fine before their game against West Indies.

Shakib, who appeared to be the lone warrior for Tigers against English bowlers, scored his maiden ton in the World Cup but his effort went in vain as other batsmen threw their wickets away.

“He picked up a little injury in that game against England. He fought on, battled on, extremely played well with his injury,’’ Rhodes told reporters at the pre-match press conference.

‘’We are very optimistic, the way treatment is running, we will get this week. The way he recovered well. We are very optimistic that he will play in the next match against West Indies.” he said.

England gave Bangladesh a massive total of 387 runs. After the quick departure of Soumya Sarker, Shakib began to consolidate Bangladesh’s innings. In the 8th over of the innings, he felt strain in his left thigh.

Physio Thihan Chandramohon gave him some treatment after that incident. He played till 40 overs in that match and constructed a fantastic innings of 121 runs of 119 balls.   

As his pain increased on Tuesday he was sent to do a scan while his participation against Sri Lanka- the match that was abandoned due to rain- remained uncertain leaving the team management complete a sleepless night.

But after the scan report that suggested he had nothing serious received nothing serious except sustaining a grade one tear it appeared there is a sigh of relief in Tigers camp as it will certainly make him available against West Indies.

Shakib is currently the leading scorer of World Cup with 260 runs in the so far on the back of two half-centuries and a century.
