But really the most important reason is after you have a knee surgery, without complete rest, without any sort of practice if you are expecting the player to really fire, you are asking for trouble. The selectors were really wrong with his selection in the first place. NOT SHAKIBS FAULT HERE.
We all are his biggest fans, and he himself has set a high standard for himself. Dont we all want him to be compared to greats of the game, and hope that he one day becomes a Legend? Whether he is in form or not, a true cricketer should not throw his bat around un-necessarily like that. What he did yesterday was very much forgivable but what he did in the 2nd test was beyond pathetic. We are being harsh here is because we all know that shakib is an experienced and a big match player. Its not sad to see him such a position.
And yes, he was coming after an injury but that is no excuse to play reckless shots. Look at sangakkara for example, I can swear he did not play a single reckless shot when he played against us, even when his team was in a comfortable position.
