Shakib Al Hasan, the Bangladesh all-rounder, will be rested during the unofficial T20 triangular series in Zimbabwe scheduled to start on June 18. Shakib asked to be rested and his request was approved, keeping in view his recent workload.

"The BCB Cricket Operations Department decided to withdraw Shakib from the tour squad following a request from the player," a board release stated.

"The break was approved considering the continuous cricket Shakib has played over the last two years."

Shakib has played each of Bangladesh's 15 Tests, 70 ODIs and eight Twenty20 internationals since the start of 2009. This year, he played for Khulna Royal Bengals in the inaugural Bangladesh Premier League, in which he was Man of the Series, and Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL.

Shakib is currently the No.1 ranked all-rounder in Tests and ODIs.
