Khulna, Bangladesh: Bangladesh suffered a crucial blow when their star all-rounder Shakib al Hasan was ruled out of the entire one-day series against the West Indies because of injury, an official said on Saturday.

The 25-year-old all-rounder's chronic shinbone injury recurred during the second Test in Khulna last week and he was initially ruled out of the first two of the five-match one-day series.
