The wait for the world's best all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan to return at 22 yards-ford is coming to an end on Tuesday in the first match of the Bangabandhu T20 Cup for Jamcon Khulna.

Shakib's one-year ban has ended on October 28 last. Then he was scheduled to return to cricket with a tour of Sri Lanka. However, it did not happen as the tour of Lanka was postponed. After that Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) organized Bangabandhu T20 Cup. As a result, this 'poster boy' of the country's cricket is returning to the field with this tournament.

His teammates have expressed their excitement over Shakib's return. Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim and Jamcon Khulna captain Mahmudullah Riyadh all congratulated Shakib.

In the returning match, Shakib's Jamcon Khulna will face Fortune Barisal at 6.30 pm on Tuesday.
