Bangladesh called star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan back from the Indian Premier League to join the team’s World Cup preparation camp, the Bangladesh Cricket Board said on Monday.

Bangladesh’s World Cup camp starts on April 22 and the team will travel to the UK in early May. They are scheduled to play a tri-nation series in Ireland from May 5-17. Shakib, who is currently with Sunrisers Hyderabad, has been asked to join the camp as soon as possible.

“Our camp is starting. I have asked to send a letter to Shakib immediately to come back. Let’s see how he responds to this,” BCB president Nazmul Hassan was quoted as saying by AFP.

Shakib has played one game so far this season, going for 42 runs in 3.4 overs against Kolkata Night Riders. Shakib recently invited his personal coach Mohammad Salahuddin to India to help his World Cup preparations.

The World Cup starts from May 30 and ends on July 14 with Bangladesh’s first game against South Africa at the Oval on June 2.
