MNA Sports Desk: Shakib Al Hasan fears his finger will never fully recover from an infection despite a planned second surgery in Australia, reported news agency.
Shakib underwent an emergency operation on his finger on 27 September in Dhaka after it became affected by a bacterial infection while he was playing in the Asia Cup in the United Arab Emirates.
Physicians cleared a large amount of pus from his infected finger and advised him to undergo a second surgery once the infection has cleared.
“The main point is how I can cure the infection because my finger will never get back to 100 per cent normal,” Shakib told reporters at Dhaka airport late as he left for Australia.
“There is no chance of soft bone getting repaired again, it will not be completely okay, but with surgery they will put the hand into a shape from where I will be able hold bat and continue playing cricket,” he said.
