Inarguably the greatest cricketer to come from Bangladesh, Shakib Al Hasan has played a pivotal role in the country’s rise as a cricket nation in all aspects of the game - as a batsman, a bowler and as a captain as well. Currently, serving a suspension period, the southpaw ensured the world took note with an enormous performance in the 2019 World Cup scoring 606 runs and scalping 11 wickets. On the occasion of his 33rd birthday, here is a look at some of his famous performances available on YouTube: 

Shakib announces himself with a 7-for

In tailor-made conditions for spinners in Chattogram in 2008, Shakib spun a web around the New Zealand batsmen snaffling 7 for 36 to hand Bangladesh a crucial 74-run lead in the first innings. It was Shakib’s first five-wicket haul which came in only the seventh Test of his career. In the second innings, Shakib contributed a handy 71 with the bat dotting his first grand all-round performance in Test cricket. Bangladesh still failed to register a victory but in Shakib, they identified an all-rounder who will go on to serve them for years.

Bullies Zimbabwe bowlers in Bulawayo

Coming out to bat in the 26th over of the innings, Shakib, during his early days as captain, blazed his way to the fastest ODI hundred by a Bangladesh batsman. Punishing the Zimbabwean bowlers in Bulawayo, Shakib’s 104 off 64 balls propelled Bangladesh to an imposing total of 320 for 8. Bangladesh scored 103 runs in the final 10 overs out of which Shakib contributed 49 till his dismissal in the 47th over through a run out. The all-rounder later picked 2 wickets with the ball in his side’s 49-run victory.

Leads Bangladesh to first Test win over the Aussies

Another turning track in Bangladesh and another five-wicket haul for Shakib, this time against Australia and in a winning cause. After the home side folded for 260 in the first Test in Dhaka in 2017, Shakib brought Bangladesh back into the game with figures of 5 for 68. He dismissed Matt Renshaw and Nathan Lyon (night watchman) at the top and bundled over the innings with the last three wickets which included the scalp of Glenn Maxwell. Another 5-wicket haul in the second innings handed the game to the home side by 20 runs - their first Test victory against Australia. Shakib also scored a crucial 84 with the bat in the first innings emerging as the obvious choice for the man-of-the-match award.
