Bangladesh recalled batsman Soumya Sarkar on Tuesday as a replacement for injured all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan for the second and final Test against the West Indies. The second test starts on Thursday at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. Soumya, who has a hundred and four and a half centuries in 15 tests, will participate in the squad’s training on Wednesday, the Bangladesh Cricket Board said in a statement.
Shakib was excluded from the upcoming game after suffering an injury in the first test, which Bangladesh lost in Chittagong.
He was unable to hit and bowl in the second innings of the game, which ended on Sunday.
His absence was greatly felt when Bangladesh was unable to defend a large 394 point lead.
Kyle Mayers hit an unbeaten 210 when a weakened West Indies won the game by three wickets.
