Bangladesh team physio Bayjedul Islam Kha has given information about his injury, he said, “Shakib was struck on his left index finger early in his innings but continued to bat with supportive taping and painkillers.

Earlier, Shakib As Hasan batted brilliantly in the ODI World Cup 2023 match against Sri Lanka. He scored 82 runs facing 65 balls and led Bangladesh to victory. At the same time, Shakib also took 2 wickets while bowling.
Captain Shakib Al Hasan had appealed to give time out to Sri Lankan team all-rounder Angelo Matthews. After that, his match-winning performance was overshadowed. Matthews took 1 minute to reach the crease, after which the umpires called him time out.
After that, Mathews became the first batsman to be timed out in international cricket. Something happened that when Angelo was coming to the crease as the new batsman after Sadeera's dismissal, while putting on the helmet, his strap broke and he politely signaled to bring another helmet, but it took more than two minutes. Meanwhile, Shakib took advantage and appealed for time out and the umpire declared him out.
Matthews did get his sweep revenge after he dismissed Shakib in the second innings. However, by then the Bangladesh skipper had gone on to hit a 65-ball 82, put up a 169-run fourth-wicket partnership with Najmal Hossain Shanto, and taken the match away from the Lankans.
