Bangladesh premier all-rounder Shakib al Hasan returned negative in the Covid-19 test on Friday. It was confirmed by Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hasan Papon.
Shakib might play the first Test against Sri Lanka, depending on his physical condition.
Earlier on Tuesday, the player was ruled out of the first Test after he was tested positive with the virus twice upon his arrival from the USA.
"According to the discussion I had with him, he will fly to Chattogram. But the fact is, he has not had any kind of practice. He said that he was feeling alright. It's completely a medical issue. It's the medical team and the fitness trainers who will decide if Shakib is fit for the first Test or not," said BCB president Nazmul Hassan.
The first Test between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will take place on May 15 at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, with the second match taking place on May 23 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur.
