Shakib Al Hasan is still at the top of the International Cricket Council (ICC) ODI and T20 all-rounders’ rankings.
Shakib has performed well with the bat and ball in the first match of the ongoing ODI series against India. Shakib returned to India’s star five batsmen after spending only 36 runs in 10 overs with the ball.
In the face of the bowling of Shakib and pacer Ebadat Hossain, the batting strong team Bharat was all out for 186 runs. Shakib scored the third-highest 29 runs in the team’s victory in the chase of the target. Shakib showed all-around skills in Bangladesh’s historic win against India.
Bangladesh head coach Russell Domingo said, “Shakib is unbelievable at the end of the day. I have coached in South Africa for a long time. Eight years after Jacques Kallis retired, I think they are still looking for an alternative. They can be sure whether they will play six batters or seven. Will you play an extra bowler or a batter?
