Shakib Al Hasan received good news on Tuesday when the medical report on his injured finger confirmed that the infection was under control. However, the SUV will remain with antibiotics, administered in the form of an injection, for another week before it can leave Melbourne and begin its rehabilitation process at home.
There was a visible improvement around the infected area at the base of his little finger on his left hand. Doctors in Dhaka had to remove the pus from his hand last week after it had swollen enough while Shakib played the Asian Cup in the United Arab Emirates last month.
"The report is good, the infection is under control, but overall recovery will take place," said Shakib Prothom Alo after spending the last two days in a hospital in Melbourne with Dr. Greg Today.
After completing the course of antibiotics, Dr. Hoy will re-examine the infected Finger before prescribing the next course of action. According to the rehabilitation process, Shakib will be out of action for three months, but if the pain goes away, he may not need more surgery.
