Default Shakib to take sabbatical from Tests Cricket?

Disappointing if true

We will take a decision once he submits the official letter," BCB cricket operations chairman Akram Khan told Cricbuzz. "We just heard about such a thing but there is nothing official about it." According to sources, Shakib is ready to fulfill his national commitments in the limited-overs formats but isn't sure about going through the rigours of the longer form immediately.

It is believed Shakib is expected to submit the letter on Sunday (September 10) requesting approval for his stepping away from Tests. On Saturday, the BCB president Nazmul Hasan, at his residence, held several meetings with the board high-ups to weigh the matter.

"I think he will be part of the Test squad. We can only think of a replacement when we get an official letter from him. Until that arrives, we can always feel he is part of the Test squad," Minhajul told Cricbuzz on Sunday.

He will miss the SA tour and home series vs Sri Lanka

We don't get lot of test cricket as it is, rest him for other formats if need be, we're finally getting decent at tests

I don't blame him, carrying an entire team can wreak havoc on your back.

On a serious note, I doubt it's true. That site looks piss poor and is probably of the "rumor has it" variety.

Hopefully not, but quotes from officials make it more worrying

You need to clarify that the article talks about 6 months and not permanent retirement. Anyways - I don't think anyone can imagine a team without shakib. If he feels his load is overwhelming, he should consider bowling less or batting down the order but we need him. Honestly, not a good time. We are too dependant on him.

Mods/OP - update the title with 6 months. Almost gave me a heart attack.

I said step away rather than retire, as I wrote it I thought it made sense, I'll edit it

He can play as a batsman if he wants really, someone who bowls 5-10 overs

IF ITS TRUE than it might just be a subtle criticism of Mushy's captaincy and his over reliance on Shakib the last 2 tests. Obviously, he can't come out and say that his best friend is a crappy captain and running him to the ground.

Problem is I doubt we can take 20 wkts without him. We can score decent runs without him thanks to tamim and mushy but not sure about our other bowlers. I want the truth behind this sudden decision. Is there a conflict with t20 league or is spin bowling coach riding too hard? What exactly is going on. He looked the most motivated i have ever seen him during the 1st test.

If he is feeling burnt out, BCB should excuse him from SA Tests (we will lose those matches one way or the other). However, they need to ensure he will be available for home Tests against SL Dec-Jan.

He carries our bowling whilst he's one of the 3 that carry our batting

It just might be injuries, he's played as an all rounder with heavy workload for 10 years, don't know what his body is telling him

I will be majorly annoyed if he goes to some other t20 league during this period though

How about giving him one year break from away/overseas Test matches as long as we get him to play all home Test matches ?

Actually if Sakib decides not to play any Test matches out of subcontinent anymore, then I do think I'll be complaining at all!

(I know he scored a double century in NZ recently, but still....)

His away record is better than his home record

We need him to have a hope of winning away, we won't beat south africa with him, but he can make it competitive

Daily Star confirms the news -

Bangladesh Cricket Board media committee chairman Jalal Yunus informed The Daily Star of this development this evening. “We have received a letter from Shakib to the effect that he wants a six-month gap from Test cricket with a view to staying fresh for the long term. The board is yet to decide whether to grant the request.”

This development comes at a time when the BCB are set to name a 15-man Test squad to tour South Africa, with the squad scheduled to depart for Johannesburg on September 16. It was learnt that Shakib is unlikely to be a part of the Test squad for the two-Test series in South Africa.

This is actually not a bad thing:
1) He will get some time to get rejuvenated
2) Mushy's captaincy will get exposed badly enough for BCB to finally do something about it
3) Our team will get exposed and hopefully selectors will also do something about it
4) in 6 months, we will hopefully have a fresh Shakib, a better team, and a better captain.

Short term pain for long term gain.

^^ Agree, stupidity of Mushfiq-Hathuru should be finally exposed, with Shakib not there to cover their blunders.

This is the trend across the world, so can't blame him for wanting a break (tbf - he has played a lot of cricket and playing cricket for Bangladesh has not been easy over the years).

But, if he then turns up to play in T20 tournaments across the world in those 6 months - I'm going to be pissed off.

Selectors rattling over ‘Shakib’s decision’ of taking leave from Test cricket
Quote:
Reports also revealed BCB President Nazmul Hasan Papon fetched chief selector, national Test captain Mushfiqur Rahim, head coach Chandika Hathurusingha and national team manager Khaled Mahmud Shujon into his Gulshan residence to settle the squad without Shakib Al Hasan for the upcoming series but has failed to do so.

It is also known that the board has decided to grant a leave for three months to Shakib Al Hasan instead of his applied period of six months which means he will only be out of the Test series against South Africa. Bangladesh has no other Test series within this time span after the series against South Africa according to FTP.

No bowler would want to play under mushfiq. He bowls some people to death and others dont get an over an entire day. I still remember Robiul bowling a 100 overs in Zimbabwe series. Shakib is not a machine. He can come back once this idiotic captain is sacked

Mushfiq hasn't done anything wrong.

Hathuri has left the team in all sorts of chaos. Drops Mominul to make room for Imrul and Sabbir, cant bother to give Mushy a role within the team. Changes batting lineups and orders more frequnetly than his tightie whities, and now cant manage Shakib properly.

This might be a decent idea. 6 months break will energize Shakib hopefully and allow us to look at a replacement for the long term future. Shakib has not been a reliable batsmen for us. we will defintiely miss him and its disappointing he wants to sit down. but he's also 30 and has to do everything for the team and this has been our busiest season in history.

He could've taken his break after SA tour. Anyway, he won't be missed as a bowler in south africa.

But we really need batsman shakib if we wanna take the first test to no 3 day against staffers. It's almost certain that without him the first test will end within 3 days.

In test Shakib has been performing really well as a batsman for last couple of years. Bangladesh team will definitely miss the batsman shakib.
