Bangladesh will fly to South Africa later this month for two Tests, three ODIs and T20Is.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has granted Shakib Al Hasan's request for a break from the five-day game and omitted the star all-rounder from the Test squad for the tour of South Africa.

Shakib has played 50 global matches across all formats since 2016, scoring 771 runs and taking 41 wickets in nine tests during this period.

Akram Khan, the BCB's cricket operations chairman, said he has the option of playing the second Test, "if he wants".

"We still can not think of a team without Shakib".

Akram confirmed that the Bangladesh all-rounder had made the request in a bid to prolong his global career.

Hurricane Irma: Ex-chief confident FEMA can handle Harvey and Irma
Combined damages from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma could cost the US economy as much as $290 billion, according to a new forecast . That's compared to $2.35 on August 25, when then-Hurricane Harvey made landfall on the southeast coast of Texas.

"We can't always be thinking about us", Akram added. We should also keep his fatigue into consideration, ' he said.

Mahmudullah was ruled out of the Test team in the just concluded Australia tour of Bangladesh apparently for his poor performance in the Sri Lankan Tests this year.

He is the first Bangladesh player to miss a Test voluntarily in their cricketing history.

Shahib was one of the most successful bowlers in this Test series after the left-arm spinner scalped a total of 12 wickets including two fifers that came in the first and second innings of the first match respectively.

Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Liton Das, Mahmudullah, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mominul Haque, Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Shafiul Islam, Soumya Sarkar, Subashis Roy, Taijul Islam, and Taskin Ahmed.
