ICC World Cup 2019: Shakib Al Hasan On Cusp Of Breaking A Rare Record
Shakib Al Hasan is one of those cricketers, who belongs to the rarest breed of cricketers. Yeah, you guessed it right, it is all-rounder’s category. The flamboyant cricketer of Bangladesh has always been their major asset and always performed for his country. Meanwhile, he is all set to break a rare record in the game of cricket.
The left-hander is pretty close to joining an elite list of all-rounders with 5000 ODI runs as well as 250 wickets simultaneously.
Shakib Al Hasan will be the quickest:
Shakib Ak Hasan has already completed the milestone of 5000 runs in ODI format of the game. So far, he picked up 249 wickets, thus, one wicket away from creating a rarest record. He will be the quickest to reach the record if he gets that against South African team.
Previously, Sanath Jayasuriya got to the landmark in 304 matches, Afridi completed the same in 273 games, Razzaq and Jacques Kallis achieved the feat in 234 and 296 games respectively.
The number one ODI all-rounder had a rather off day with both bat and ball in their warm-up game against India which Bangladesh lost by 95 runs on Tuesday.
Shakib went for 58 runs in his six overs and picked up two wickets. While batting, he was bowled on the very first ball when he faced Jasprit Bumrah.
However, he will remain as the vital cog for Bangladesh, as he is their best player available in the ranks. Shakib Al Hasan would like to deliver the goods at any cost in order to see his side doing unthinkable. Bangladesh will begin their World Cup campaign against South Africa on June 2 at The Oval.
