Shakib had been playing for Gemcom Khulna in the Bangabandhu T20 Cup, but had to leave for the US before the final due to his father-in-law’s condition. But wife Umme Ahmed Shishir’s father passed away before he could reach the US.

Mumtaz Ahmed was from Narsingdi district in Bangladesh. Once Shakib reaches the US, it will be decided whether Mumtaz Ahmed’s body will be brought back to the country or not.
