Bangladesh’s experienced all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan,

sidelined from the ICC World Cup 2023 due to a finger injury, is set to venture into politics by contesting the parliamentary elections for the Awami League, according to ESPNcricinfo.

The 36-year-old will represent Magura-1 constituency, with the polling scheduled for January 7, 2024. Notably, Shakib joins the ranks of other Bangladesh cricketers like BCB president Nazmul Hassan and director Shafiul Alam Chowdhury who are actively involved in politics.

Despite his absence, Bangladesh’s upcoming tour of New Zealand awaits confirmation on Shakib’s participation in the scheduled contests, comprising two Tests, three ODIs, and three T20Is.
