Shakib’s dual delight

Read Time:1 Minute, 42 Second

Shakib Al Hasan, premier of Bangladesh, re-established his top place in the ICC T20I all-rounder classification. He was also chosen ICC player of the month for Juli after Bangladesh took the first bilateral triumph against Australia in a series of formats away to Zimbabwe last month.

Shakib’s spectacular performance in the Zimbabwe series last month gave him the player of the week award, while he was rewarded for the first time since October 2017 for his achievements at the Australia series this month.

As Shakib reacted to the Player of the Month Award, in the press release ICC quoted: “It is extremely humiliating that ICC Men’s Player of the Month for July 2021 should be elected. There were a lot of excellent performances throughout the month, which is why I find it special.

„When I contribute to victories, I am really pleased and satisfied to have helped in the successes of Bangladesh in the recent several weeks.”

Meanwhile, left-arm ash paceman Mustafizur Rahman, who was key to winning Australia with the 4-1 Tigers, won 20 positions and reached to the top 10 ranks in the bowling. Now he’s 10th in the 619-point rankings, while among others Mohammad Saifuddin (26-3) and Nasum Ahmed (103-66th) have progressed.

Shakib, second in the All-Rounder classification, has beaten Mohammad Nabi for a top slot with 241 ratings points ahead of the Bangladesh 5-Match series against Australia.

Shakib is now 286 points at the top of the list, while Nabi is 285 points behind him. Three spots have also been won for the 34-year-old Bangladesh all-rounder to reach 53rd among the batteries and six spots up to 12th among the bowlers.

Mahmudullah Riyadh, the Bangladesh T20I skipper, has two spots and is now in 33rd place.

Shakib had a total of 114 in an average of 22.80, most of the time in the series by a Bangladeshi, while he scalped seven wickets in five games, as the Australia player of the Series.
