Yeah, I am also a bit skeptical about the claim that Shakib, Tamim & co. 'don't care' about Test cricket. These remarks by Shakib were from earlier this year:

"Test cricket is one of my top priorities and I intend to carry on playing Test cricket as long as I can. If you ask me, Bangladesh still doesn’t have enough quality Test players, so I feel it is very important I continue to play as long my form and fitness permits. As a child, my dream was playing in whites for my country and that dream has an impact on how I look at different formats. But I’m afraid the younger cricketers might not necessarily have the same view and it’s no surprise some of them prefer the shorter formats."
