Former one-day international captain for Bangladesh and current skipper for the T20 team, Shakib Al-Hassan, has joined his squad for the crucial match on Friday (March 16) after recovering from a finger injury. An all-rounder Hassan’s return to the Bangladesh side gives an additional advantage to the team, added Hathurusingha.
