DHAKA: Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan on Thursday hinted he might skip the Asia Cup in the United Arab Emirates next month to undergo surgery on his finger.

“We all know that I have to have a surgery,” Shakib told reporters at Dhaka’s Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport after the Bangladesh team’s return from the West Indies.

“But I feel the earlier it is done, the better, most probably before the Asia Cup,” he said.

Shakib hurt his little finger on his left hand during the one-day international series against Sri Lanka in January and missed the subsequent Test and Twenty20 series.
