He was unable to bat and bowl in the second innings.

His absence was felt massively when Bangladesh were unable to defend a large 394-run lead.

Kyle Mayers struck an unbeaten 210 as a weakened West Indies won the game by three wickets.

"Shakib has been assessed and monitored continuously since suffering a strain on his left thigh on the second day of the match," the Bangladesh Cricket Board said in a statement.

No replacement has been named for the second Test which starts in Dhaka on Friday.
