It's the pinky. He can grip the ball and bowl but has pain. Batting becomes a problem. He took pain killer shots before the last two games.

Asia Cup has a significant challenge without him. 80-90% Shakib is better than 200% (100% batting and 100% bowling by two) of the replacement. We lose one game and may not make it to the second stage. A lot is riding on this cup as well. Whereas, Zim series, we can afford to sit him.

I don't think Papon is out of line since the rehab may take 3 weeks or more.
