Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been granted a break from all forms of cricket till April 30.

“He’s mentally stressed and fatigued. He told me at this point of time, he is not enjoying any form of cricket,” BCB cricket operation chairman Jalal Yunus told reporters on Wednesday.

“He always said one thing that he is not enjoying, unfit and not ready. Since he’s ‘mentally fatigued and physically stressed’, after discussion with the CEO and the president, we have decided to give him rest from all forms of cricket till April 30.”

“Shakib is an all-rounder, an important player for us. We have the World Cup coming up, We want him for one more big series and if a player wants to skip and not enjoying, we want to give him complete rest and spend time with his family.”

“I think it is logical to think that if he was in a poor physical and mental state, he wouldn’t have given his name in the IPL … But he went ahead with it. So, does it mean that if he got his IPL contract, he would have said the same thing?” Hassan questioned.
