In a major blow to Bangladesh’s cricket team, star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been ruled out of the final ODI against Ireland due to a finger injury. Shakib sustained the injury while fielding during the second ODI on Friday, May 12.

The Bangladesh team physio, Bayjedul Islam Khan, has confirmed that Shakib will be sidelined for up to six weeks, leaving him in doubt for the upcoming one-off Test against Afghanistan next month.

Shakib’s absence will be a big loss for Bangladesh, as the 36-year-old is one of the most experienced and skilled players in their squad. He has been a consistent performer for the team over the years, contributing with both bat and ball. His absence will put extra pressure on the rest of the team to step up and fill the void left by him.

The last report on Shakib before this was that he, Litton Das, and Afif Hossain got drafted for the Lanka Premier League (LPL).

Bangladesh Status Before ODI Finale

Despite the setback, Bangladesh was looking to seal a series victory over Ireland in the final ODI on Sunday. At the time of the announcement, the visitors were leading the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League series 1-0 and were eager to finish on a high note. They hoped to build on their impressive performance in the second ODI, where they chased down a mammoth target of 320 runs set by Ireland.

Najmul Hossain Shanto was the star of the show for Bangladesh in that game, scoring his maiden ODI century with an unbeaten 117. The left-handed opener showed great composure and skill, anchoring the innings and taking his team to victory. His partnership with Mushfiqur Rahim, who scored a vital 59 runs, proved to be the difference between the two teams.

Bangladesh’s bowlers also played their part in the win, with Taskin Ahmed and Mehidy Hasan taking three wickets each.


The Final ODI

Following the report of Shakib Al Hasan’s Injury, Bangladesh won the ODI Series 2-0.

It was a thrilling finale as Bangladesh claimed a five-run victory over Ireland in the final one-day international cricket match of the series. Skipper Tamim Iqbal shone with a top score of 69, while Mustafizur Rahman’s four wickets helped Bangladesh clinch a 2-0 series win.

Ireland began their chase well and looked set for victory, needing just 10 runs from the final over. However, Hasan Mahmud’s crucial wickets in the first and third deliveries of the over put Bangladesh in the driving seat. Ireland was unable to recover, finishing on 269-9, just five runs shy of their target.

Match Highlights

Iqbal’s steady innings, supported by Najmul Hossain Shanto and Litton Das, laid the foundation for Bangladesh’s total of 274 from 48.5 overs. While Mushfiqur Rahim and Mehidy Hasan Miraz also chipped in with valuable contributions, Ireland’s Mark Adair took three wickets late in the innings to finish with figures of 4-40.

Ireland’s Paul Stirling and captain Andy Balbirnie posted half-centuries, with Lorcan Tucker and Harry Tector also contributing with the bat. However, Bangladesh’s strong bowling performance proved too much for Ireland in the end.

This victory will undoubtedly boost Bangladesh’s confidence as they look ahead to future fixtures, while Ireland will rue missed opportunities in a tightly contested series.
