The event technical committee of the ICC World Cup 2023 has approved Bangladesh's request to rope in Anamul Haque Bijoy as the replacement for Shakib Al Hasan after the all-rounder was ruled out of the remainder of the tournament due to a finger injury.

Shakib sustained a fracture on his left index finger during a match against Sri Lanka on November 7th, 2023. The injury occurred while he was batting, during his team's three-wicket victory over Sri Lanka at the Arun Jaitley stadium. An X-ray examination conducted after the game confirmed the fracture, ruling him out of the upcoming match against Australia scheduled for November 11th in Pune.

Bayjedul Islam Khan, the physio of the Bangladesh men’s team, said that it would take the skipper three to four weeks to recover and would head back home on November 7 to start his rehab.

“Shakib was struck on his left index finger early

in his innings but continued to bat with supportive taping and painkillers," Khan was quoted as saying.

"He underwent an emergency X-ray in Delhi after the game which confirmed the fracture on the left PIP joint. Recovery is estimated at three to four weeks. He will leave for Bangladesh today to begin his rehab."

The ICC has now revealed on their website that the approval has been given to include Anamul as the replacement for Shakib for the final match against Australia.

"The Event Technical Committee of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 has approved Anamul Haque Bijoy as a replacement for Shakib Al Hasan in the Bangladesh squad," read the statement on ICC's website.

Anamul Haque has played 45 matches so far in his ODI career and has scored 1230 runs during that time. The 30-year-old has scored three hundreds and five fifties in his ODI career.
