Bangladesh star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan Sohan are in a race against time to be fit for their next match in the T20 World Cup against South Africa on November 2.
Shakib sustained a hamstring injury in the match against the West Indies while Sohan is still suffering from a blow on his abdomen received ahead of the match against England. Sohan missed the game against WI already.
According to the media department of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), Sohan will be assessed on November 1 to decide if he is fit to play on November 2.
Shakib will be assessed after the completed 48 hours of rest to see if he is fit to play the next match.
Bangladesh have lost all three matches they have played so far in the Super 12s stage, which has made their way to the semifinals impossible.
The injury concern over Shakib came as a fresh blow for the Tigers.
Mahmudullah, the T20 captain of Bangladesh, said they still have plenty to take from the T20 World Cup if they can register wins in the remaining matches.
