After an emergency procedure to remove pus from his injured finger on his return to Dhaka from the Asia Cup in Dubai, an infection to Shakib Al Hasan's injured little finger has ruled the star Bangladesh all-rounder out of action for up to at least three months. He will now have to wait another three weeks for surgery on the finger. The pus formed extended up to his left wrist, which was only spotted in Dhaka on Thursday, which in turn hindered predetermined proceedings.
"The moment I arrived in the hospital, the doctors told me that I have to get the pus out as soon as possible," Shakib said to Prothom Alo on Saturday (September 29). "Any delay would put me in great danger as the infection spread till my wrist. If I had waited another few days, my wrist would have become disabled. I feel better after they took out the pus, but the problem is until the infection isn't gone, there isn't going to be a surgery on my injured finger. It will take another 2-3 weeks to fix. After surgery I will need eight weeks, which means I am out for three months," he added.
Shakib was forced to withdraw from the Asia Cup 2018 last Monday when the pain in his finger became unbearable thanks to the swelling during the tournament. Although Bangladesh's physio Tihan Chandramohan sent his reports and X-rays to doctors in Australia and England, he couldn't identify the possibility of an infection, despite the swelling.
"The BCB president [Nazmul Hassan] asked if I could play the Asia Cup or I could go for the surgery. He told me to take the decision. When I asked the physio about what damage it may have, he told me it won't be that dangerous.
