Shakib, Mushfiqur return to Dhaka
Bangladesh's two most experienced players –Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan – returned to the country on a three-day leave from the team following their defeat against Sri Lanka on Saturday night.
Mushfiqur has returned to be with his wife for the birth of their second child.
Captain Shakib, who said after the defeat that the team needed a reality check before the World Cup, returned by the same flight that Mushfiqur traveled in. According to the Bangladesh Cricket Board's cricket operations chairman Jalal Yunus, Shakib has taken the leave due to personal reasons.
The Tigers are scheduled to play their last Super Four game against India on September 15 and both cricketers are expected to join the team on September 13. There are no mandatory training sessions of the team in the next two days.
