Who is the Best Bangladesh Cricket All-Rounder? Who will be the successor to it?

Undoubtedly, Shakib Al Hasan is the best Bangladesh cricket all-rounder. The 36-year-old cricketer is an internationally identified talent. As of now, he is ranked as the all-rounder in ODI Cricketing. Also, he has been involving himself in charitable help to weak children and he is a role model to many youngsters.

At times, a few disputes off-field have afflicted his good image. But if you ask purely only about the game, then Shakib Al Hasan holds a strong place amongst many other greatest all-rounders.

Bangladesh Cricket Blessed with 4 Cricketing Stars

It is such a delightful moment that Bangladesh cricket has been blessed with 4 cricketing stars over the last decade namely:

  • Tamim Iqbal
  • Mushfiqur Rahim
  • Mashrafe Mortaza (Now Retired)
  • Shakib Al Hasan (Team’s Prime)

Shakib has accumulated excellent records and attained immense popularity. Also, no one would deny that he remains the greatest in donning the Bangla Tigers Red and Green Jersey.

Has any player reached Shakib’s Records?

Till now it is only Shahid Afridi and Sanath Jayasuriya who have reached Shakib’s record which is more than 7000 runs and 33 wickets. It remains a beautiful history in the One Day International chapter.

His Test matches would count for more than 4000 runs and 200 wickets. With this Shakib fixed a strong place for himself in the history of international all-rounders.

Even in the short formats, he didn’t slow down as he attained more than 2000 runs and 140 wickets. However, it is without counting his unfair performances in the leagues.

Shakib’s importance in the match against New Zealand

Shakib created a crucial stand with Mushfiqur while they played in Chennai. They were in the process of saving Bangladesh’s name. However, it was a question of holding the prestige, with a stagnant score of 54 runs, and 4 wickets that too within the 13th over. Hence, Shakib’s importance in the match against New Zealand acted as a lifesaver at that time.

Despite having blunders in delivery, missing a few catches, and their slow start, Shakib struggled to take the score beyond 150 runs in 30 overs.

However, Shakib required medical attention as he had strained a lot during that match. Due to that, he felt tough moving his thighs. It happened while Shakib was trying to take a quick single. Probably it was because of the humid climate in the venue.
