I don't know about the whole [series] but certainly for the start of the ODIs, he [Shakib Al Hasan] won't be available. Big blow for us because there aren't many Shakibs in the world. Playing spin and against spin is one of our main strengths. I don't anticipate too much turn on these wickets. It will bounce and carry and wrist-spinners will get a bit of grip out of it. They know we have lost our best player, so maybe they will make some spinning wickets for us.
It's going to be a tough series as Bangladesh are a quality side as they have showed us a couple of years ago when they beat us in the Champions Trophy. We are hoping and pretty confident that we can make a good start and put our front foot forward. Obviously, Shakib is a world-class player and he plays a lot of cricket, but injuries happen in cricket and it's an unfortunate time for him. But he gets a break for now and potentially, he will be back later in the series.
