He missed the 37-run victory against Pakistan on Wednesday as well as Friday’s final against India after pain of his left little finger, which occurred during the Sri Lanka series, resurfaced.
“When I was returning home with pain in my hand, I did not realise I would face such a terrible situation,” Shakib wrote on his verified Facebook page.
“After coming back to home, due to immense pain and abnormal swelling of the hand, I needed an immediate surgery done in a hospital… infected pus had to be taken out from my finger,” he wrote.
“Your prayers have saved me from a great danger but I will have to do another surgery quickly,” added the 31-year-old.
The surgery means he will miss next month’s series against Zimbabwe.
