The Sri Lankan national cricket team is coming to Bangladesh on May 8. Bangladesh will host Sri Lanka in two Test matches in the tour. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is waiting to see if Shakib Al Hasan will be found in that Test series. This is due to the 35-year-old also being absent in the last Test series for the country. Shakib could not play in the Test against South Africa due to illness of several members in his family.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh has faced an extremely embarrassing loss in the two-match Test series. This time BCB is also suffering from uncertainty about the availability of Shakib in the Sri Lanka series. Shakib's mother-in-law died of cancer a few days ago. When Shakib was in the United States with his daughter, he could not return to the country leaving his daughter alone in such a situation. All in all, Shakib Al Hasan is having a difficult time in his family. That is why there is such concern about playing the world's best all-rounder in the Sri Lanka series.

The bilateral series will start on May 15 with the first Test at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong. If all goes well, the Bangladesh team is scheduled to start the camp from May 8. The day the Sri Lankan team will arrive in Dhaka. However, BCB is not sure about Shakib's presence even though there is still a month left till the start of the series. According to Jalal Yunus, chairman of the BCB's cricket management division, the final decision will be announced by Shakib in the next few days.

At the Home of Cricket Mirpur, Jalal Yunus, chairman of the cricket management department, sat down to discuss the selectors, directors and chief executive. After the meeting, he spoke about Shakib in the media. Jalal Yunus said, 'I will know from Shakib in a few days. Talks are going on with him. Since the family members are sick and the mother-in-law has died, he has a lot of problems to deal with. That's why we didn't tell him anything. We will be able to get him once the family problem is resolved '.

Additionally, there is no shortage of discussions about Shakib's presence or absence before almost every series for the country. A few days ago, the national team's tour of South Africa was quite gloomy. Both Shakib and BCB's hide and seek game is almost unprofessional. In the end, Shakib went to South Africa but could not play the Test due to family problems. The world's best all-rounder is out of the field in white jersey for several days. He played the last Test for the country in December 2021. Shakib's performance in that match against Pakistan was 96 runs with the bat. He failed to take any wicket.
