He has made a big contribution to the collapse of Australia. He was great in bowling, short in batting, but played some effective innings. That is why Bangladesh lost to Australia 4-1. Thanks to such a performance, Shakib Al Hasan has once again moved to the top of the T20 rankings. The ICC released a weekly update of the rankings on Wednesday.
Mustafizur Rahman also has good news. The star cricketer of the Bangladesh national team received the award for success against Australia. Mustafiz is 20 steps ahead in the ranking of T20 bowlers and has risen to the top ten. The Phiz took 7 wickets in the last series against Ajit.
After a hard time, Shakib has just returned. He has done well in the recent five-match T20 series against Australia at home. Especially with a ball in hand, except for one match, everyone had that familiar rhythm. In the last match of the series against Ajit, he took 4 wickets for 1 maiden and 9 runs in 3.2 overs.
Shakib became the first cricketer to complete 1,000 runs and a double of 100 wickets in the International Twenty20. He also touched the milestone of taking 100 wickets in T20 as the second bowler in the world. However, batting in this format, he has built a reputation of taking one thousand runs and one hundred wickets, which no one else has.
The good news in the rankings is that there is a trace of that success. After October 2017, Shakib again topped the rankings of T20 all-rounders. Mohammad Nabi of Afghanistan went down in two. Although the difference between the two rating points is only 1. The biggest thing – he regained the ranking throne.
Earlier, Shakib was at the top of the ODI rankings. The five star cricketers of Bangladesh are in the Tests. Shakib also had a good last month. He has been shortlisted for the ICC Player of the Month for his tour of Zimbabwe.
