Bangladesh ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan will skip the three-match ODI series against West Indies and Bangladesh will miss his service in the Zimbabwe series as well, according to the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).

Bangladesh already lost the Test and T20 series against the Windies. The three ODIs are also scheduled to be played in Guyana on July 10, 13 and 16.

"Shakib is not available in the Zimbabwe tour and informed us about it before and so we sat with selection panel regarding the formation of the team," said Jalal. "Most of the other senior players are available and they want to play," he added.

The veteran all-rounder has recently returned as the captain of the Bangladesh Test team. He led the Tigers in the two-match series against the West Indies. He comparatively batted well in the series, but his team failed to impress.
