Bangladesh cricket fans and players are all eagerly anticipating the return of one the country's finest players, Shakib al Hasan into their squad. Shakib, who was the captain of the country's T20I side and among the world's pre-eminent allrounders, has been out of the game for a year following a ban by the Bangladesh Cricket Board. Since his ban, Shakib has dropped below the radar and is currently in the US with his wife and two daughters. There is no animosity between him and any of the other players in the team or with the management, with everyone indicating that they are more than happy to have Shakib back in the team.

Shakib ban lifted, Mahmudullah welcomes teammate on Twitter

Shakib al Hasan's long-time teammate and successor Mahmudullah has said to ESPNcricinfo that he is very happy to welcome back his "boy" into the Bangladesh team and is waiting to catch up with him. Both Mahmudullah and the team's coaches and staff believe that Shakib will make his back into the team without any issues. Shakib's role as an all-rounder has been a crucial one for the side, and one that they have not been able to fill since his departure. This has had a huge effect on the team, who lost back to back series in India and Pakistan last year.

Shakib has been gearing up for his much-anticipated return to the game, with practice sessions under Mohammad Salahuddin and Nazmul Abedeen Fahim in Bangladesh. However, with the BCB's talks for a series with Sri Lanka falling through, Shakib's return to international cricket may be pushed back further. His first tournament back now is most likely to be the five-team T20 tournament starting in mid-November. Shakib's return to international cricket will probably be against West Indies in January 2021.
