Shakib Al Hasan has achieved wondrous things in his career for Bangladesh. He has hoisted our flag high in the global stage numerous times. Recently, he has done it once again as Lord’s Cricket Ground has declared Shakib’s name in their top 20 players list for 2016.
Lord’s Cricket Ground’s official facebook page has started revealing their top 20 from yesterday. And in no. 20, they’ve put the Bangladeshi all-rounder. They’ve also made a video showcasing why they’ve put Shakib in their illustrious list.
Shakib is the top all-rounder in the ODI format. He has surpassed many greats to achieve this position. At one point, he was above Jacque Kallis and Shane Watson when they were playing. Now, he is still holding that position with all the dynamic all-rounders of the world.
Shakib is one of the 3 players in the long history of Test cricket to score a hundred and take 10 wickets in the same match. The other two in this elite list are Australia’s England’s Sir Ian Botham and Pakistan’s Imran Khan.
Shakib has been Bangladesh’s star performer from a very young age. That is reflected in his record of being the youngest ODI player to score 4000 runs and take 200 wickets.
Shakib Al Hasan’s achievements are endless. He will achieve a lot more in the coming years. The recognition form Lord’s will be yet another milestone for the future legend.
