Shakib Al Hasan was a failure in the first three matches of the ongoing Tri-Twenty20 series. The veteran all-rounder, however, burned the bat pretty well in the fourth game of the series. Bangladesh won the match against Afghanistan by relying on his bat. And on this day, the world record is made of two of the best all-rounders.
Shakib scored a magnificent innings of 5 runs and became the second Bangladeshi and the 20th batsman in the world to score 3 runs in the International Twenty20. His total collection of 3 T20 matches is now 5 runs.
Not only in batting, but also in bowling, Shakib has made a great name. Mohammed Nabi was trapped in the LBW and took a personal 8th wicket in T20. He is the fourth bowler to captain Bangladesh. Only three wickets more than him, Dwayne Bravo, Lasith Malinga and Sunil Narine. Shakib took 20 wickets in franchise cricket in addition to taking 42 wickets in the international Twenty20.
Shakib made his international debut in the Twenty20 international against Zimbabwe. Since then, some of the great works have been deposited in his hold. This time another record has been set.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh lost Afghanistan by four wickets in their fourth match in this tri-series. The visitors will face the tourists again in the finals next Tuesday.
Afghanistan batted first at the Chittagong Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium with seven wickets in the stipulated over. Bangladesh took six wickets in reply to take four wickets to win. After the match, Shakib was unbeaten on 7 runs. After the first Twenty20 victory against Afghanistan in the Twenty20, the Red-Green team was seen.
