Bangladesh will ask Shakib Al Hasan to return from Indian Premier League and join the team's World Cup preparation camp next week, Bangladesh Cricket Board said Monday.
“Our camp is beginning. I have asked to send a letter to Shakib immediately to come back. Let’s see how he responds to this,” said BCB president Nazmul Hassan.
Shakib played just one game this season for Sunrisers Hyderabad.
It was the only competitive game for Shakib since returning from an injury he picked up during the Bangladesh Premier League final in January.
In a star-studded line-up of foreign players at Hyderabad, Bangladesh is concerned Shakib might not get more matches in the coming days.
Unable to get enough games, Shakib recently invited his personal coach Mohammad Salahuddin to India in order to keep him ready for the World Cup.
Bangladesh will start their preparation camp for the tournament on April 22 and the team will leave for the UK in early May. They are scheduled to play a tri-nation tournament in Ireland from May 5-17.
