Ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan tested negative for Covid-19 in the latest screening and now he will join the team for practice ahead of the Sri Lanka Tests.

He was tested positive on his return to the country from the USA. 

"Shakib has tested negative for Covid-19 and will fly to Chattogram today (Friday) to join the team. But it's not sure whether he can play the first Test. We'll have a discussion with the medical team and then make a decision," chief selector Minhajul Abedin told media.

Shakib arrived in Bangladesh on 10 May and the results came out positive in the mandatory Covid test. He was supposed to be in isolation for four days. But taking the first Test match into consideration, he underwent a screening and received negative results.
