I would hope Shakib is just asking for a temporary break. Its not ideal, but if thats all it is, I'm OK with it. We dont know what his mental state is like, it seems he's mentally beat rather than physical. Unlike the Kohlis or De Villiers, he plays in the IPL, CPL, PSL, occaisional stints elsewhere and the only time hes not there is for international duties. Thats a lot of travelling.

He also travels alot for family as his wife and daughter live in the US.

The BCB seems to think there is a chance shakib might come back for the 2nd Test. I just hope he's back for the SL series, as that might mark the first time Bangladesh fields their strongest ever XI.

In the cricinfo article, Nasir was dropped because he underperformed in his comeback series. For Imrul, Soumya & Shabbir it wasn't a comeback series. So, theoretically, if Mahmudullah underperforms, he should get punted- again. Rubel is the Bradman of bowlers- average wise.

Shakib speaks! He sheds some light on his request for a break: "Tests will be the LAST format I retire from"
