KHULNA, Bangladesh (AFP) - 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.

Bangladesh physician Debashish Chowdhury said after a review of his MRI scan reports on Saturday that he has been asked to rest for four to six weeks.

"We reviewed his MRI and have decided to rest him for the series," Chowdhury told reporters. "He will need at least four to six week rest to heal the injury, though no surgery is required."

Despite the absence of the star all-rounder, Bangladesh clinched a comfortable seven-wicket win against the tourists in the first one-day here on Friday, to go 1-0 up in the series.

Young uncapped batsman Mominul Haque replaced Shakib in the squad for the first two matches and is now likely to retain his place for the entire series after making his debut on Friday.

The second match of the series will also be played in Khulna on Sunday. The remaining three matches are in Dhaka on December 5, 7 and 8. The two teams will also play a Twenty20 international, also in Dhaka on December 10.
