“We believe the family comes first. So we have no objection. Shakib has already left the team hotel and his flight to the USA is tonight,” he added.
Shakib played nine matches in the Bangabandhu T20 Cup but failed to impress much. He scored only 110 runs and bagged six wickets.
Meanwhile, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is planning to hold a national team practice camp in early January ahead of the home series against West Indies. It’s not clear whether Shakib will join the camp or not.
