Dhaka: Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been ruled out of the Twenty20 World Cup with a hamstring injury, the country's cricket board said Sunday.

"Shakib sustained a left lower hamstring strain while fielding during the match against the West Indies," the team's doctor, Debashis Chowdhury, said in a statement.

"He is ruled out from participation in the last two matches of the tournament and until further review."

Bangladesh lost to the West Indies by three runs in Sharjah on Friday.

It was the team's third successive defeat in as many matches in the Super 12 phase, effectively ending their chances to qualify for the semi-finals.

Shakib, the top all-rounder in men's T20I rankings, was man-of-the-match in Bangladesh's two wins over Oman and Papua New Guinea in the qualifying round.

The Bangladesh Cricket Board said it would not call up a replacement for Shakib.

Bangladesh face South Africa in their next match on November 2.
