Bangladesh's Shakib Al Hasan, the world's leading all-rounder, will sit out of two Test matches during a tour of South Africa this month after asking for a break from the longer format, selectors said yesterday.

Shakib has requested a six-month sabbatical from the game 'to refresh his body'.

"We still cannot think of a team without Shakib. But he wanted a break and it was granted," said chief selector Minhajul Abedin while announcing the team at a press conference.
