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.
Sunzamul Islam is Shakib's replacement if he gets injured. He is also a left arm spin all-rounder. Fazle Mahmud can also put a case for himself to be included as he himself is an allrounder who bowls legbreak and since we are looking for a wrist spinner. Although the last game for Bangladesh A against Ireland will tell a bit more about him. As for batting, we might want to push up Mossadek to No.3 and allow him to showcase his batting a bit more.
