Shakib to set an exceptional record in the upcoming World Cup

Shakib to set an exceptional record in the upcoming World Cup

Shakib Al Hasan and record on the cricket field, two words are synonymous with each other. Shakib has broken many old records and made new ones, and sometimes taking himself to new heights by writing his name in the record books of cricket.

Record setting and breaking is very common for this left-hander Tiger all-rounder. Shakib, who is constantly surpassing himself, is now standing in front of a new record. This poster boy of Team Bangladesh will set that record when he takes the field in the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Shakib will lead Team Bangladesh in this World Cup in Australia. The fact that Shakib is going to make a record in this World Cup was confirmed only after the announcement of the World Cup team of Bangladesh. If everything goes well, Shakib will become the only Bangladeshi cricketer to play in all T20 World Cups as soon as he lands in Australia in the country’s jersey.

Shakib and Mushfiqur Rahim were in the team for the first T20 match in the history of Bangladesh against Zimbabwe. After that, Shakib and Mushfiqur Rahim have played together in all the World Cups since 2007.

Mahmudullah Riyad was also their companion. Now they both could have shared the same record with Shakib. But Mushfiqur retired from this format a few days ago. On the other hand, Riyad was dropped due to off form.

Before the Asia Cup, Shakib was made the T20 captain of Bangladesh by removing Riyad. Changes were also brought in the team management of the team. However, the Tigers could not play the new brand of cricket despite promising in the Asia Cup. Now Shakib’s aim is to play well in the upcoming World Cup.

Shakib has played a total of 101 T20 matches for the country since the beginning. Where he scored a total of 2045 runs at an average of 22.98 with the help of 10 fifties with the bat. He also took 122 wickets with the ball.

It should be noted that only India’s Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik have played T20 in the country’s jersey from the beginning till now like Shakib. Shakib – Rohit are similar at one point. Shakib and Rohit are the two cricketers in world cricket who have played all the World Cups till now and are leading the team in this World Cup.
