Shakib Al Hasan will replace Johan Botha against Sydney Sixers in BBL

Ahead of the Big Bash League (BBL) match against the Sydney Sixers that will be held on Sunday, the Adelaide Strikers has picked Bangladeshi all-rounder, Shakib Al Hasan, to replace the injured captain, Johan Botha.
The good news is that Strikers spinner, Jon Holland, has made his inclusion to the squad after being declared fit by the BBL technical committee. He will take the place of Harry Allanby who replaced the unfit player.
Shakib Al Hasan, who is currently the world’s number fourth Twenty20 all-rounder, will be contracted to the Strikers squad as a replacement overseas player for Botha. Botha will regain his place after recovering from injury and if declared fit.

Shakib Al Hasan is the first player from Bangladesh to play in Australia’s competitive tournament.
