Shakib Al Hasan:

Shakib Al Hasan (Bengali: ????? ?? ?????) (born 24 March 1987) is a Bangladeshi international cricketer. In January 2015, he attained the #1 All-Rounder ranking in all three forms of the cricket (Test, ODI and T20). Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan achieved a new milestone when he topped the International Cricket Council (ICC) All-Rounder rankings across all three formats, becoming the first cricketer to achieve this feat.[citation needed] The success for Shakib has come as a result of his exploits during the recently-concluded Test and One-Day International (ODI) series against Zimbabwe. Shakib earned 398 points in the Test format, 57 points ahead of South African bowling all-rounder Vernon Philander. He earned 403 and 377 points in ODIs and Twenty20 Internationals (T20I) respectively, ahead of Pakistan’s Mohammad Hafeez in both the limited-overs formats. Shakib had recently played a major part in Bangladesh’s 3-0 and 5-0 whitewashes of the Zimbabwe series’, collecting 29 wickets and scoring two centuries and a half-century across the formats. Shakib is expected to play a major role during Bangladesh’s upcoming World Cup campaign. He is an all-rounder batting left-handed in the middle order and bowling slow left-arm orthodox. He represented Bangladesh at under-19 level playing 18 Youth One Day Internationals between 2005 and 2006. Shakib made his One Day International (ODI) debut against Zimbabwe in August 2006, and his Test debut the following May against India. From January 2009 to April 2011 and again from March 2012, Shakib was ranked first amongst ODI all-rounders by the ICC. In December 2011, he became the world's top-ranked Test all-rounder.In December 2014 Shakib became the world's top ranked Twenty 20 all-rounder. He is currently the only all rounder to be ranked in the top 3 of ICC Player Rankings across every format of international cricket.[1] In 2008, Shakib took at that time the best bowling figures by a Bangladesh player in Tests, 7 wickets for 36 runs, against New Zealand. To date he is Bangladesh's highest wicket taker in Test Matches.

Early years and youth cricket:

According to Prothom Alo sports editor Utpal Shuvro, Shakib "was fairly proficient [at cricket] and was often hired to play for different villages".  In one of these matches Shakib impressed an umpire who arranged for him to practice with the Islampur Para Club, a team in the Magura Cricket League. During the practice session, Shakib batted aggressively and bowled fast, as he usually did, but also chose to experiment with spin bowling which proved to be effective. He was picked to play for Islampur and took a wicket with his first ball; it was his first delivery with a proper cricket ball, having previously generally played with a taped tennis ball. He spent six months training at Bangladesh Krira Shiksha Pratisthan,  a government-run sports institute.  In 2005, during the final of a tri-nation tournament involving England and Sri Lanka's Under-19 teams, Shakib scored an 86-ball century and took three wickets to lead his team to victory  Between 2005 and 2006, Shakib played 18 youth One Day Internationals; he scored 563 runs at an average of 35.18, and took 22 wickets at an average of 20.18. 

International breakthrough (2006–2008):

Shakib was included in Bangladesh's senior squad to tour Zimbabwe in 2006. Along with Farhad Reza and Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib was one of the three uncapped players to be included in the squad.  Shakib and Reza were described as "very good cricketers in all departments of the game", and Faruq Ahmed – the chief selector – said that Bangladesh had "high hopes from them and it's time for them to perform at the international level".  Shakib made his ODI debut on the tour on 6 August; his maiden wicket was that of all-rounder Elton Chigumbura, and he finished with bowling figures of 1/39. He also scored 30 not out while Shahriar Nafees scored his maiden ODI century to help Bangladesh win by eight wickets. It was the final match in the series, which Zimbabwe won 3–2.  In September 2006, Shakib was one of three players to be granted a rookie contract with the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), along with Farhad Reza and Mehrab Hossain Jr. This increased the number of players with central contracts and under the control of the BCB from 20 to 23.  The West Indies hosted the 2007 Cricket World Cup in March and April; Shakib was included in the 15-man squad led by Habibul Bashar.  Bangladesh made it to the second stage of the competition and finished seventh.  Along the way the team caused an upset by beating India to help knock them out of the tournament. With Tamim Iqbal in just his fifth ODI and Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib was one of three Bangladesh batsmen in the match to score a half century to help the team reach its target of 192 to win.  Later in the tournament, Shakib scored another half-century although Bangladesh were defeated by England on that very occasion.  With 202 runs from nine matches at an average of 28.85  

Becoming Bangladesh's leading all-rounder (2008–2009):

Before New Zealand's tour of Bangladesh in October 2008, Shakib was considered more of a batsman than a bowler, despite being an all-rounder. Though he usually batted down the order at number seven in Tests, he had mostly batted in the top five in ODIs. In a departure from Shakib's usual role Jamie Siddons, the coach, stated that Shakib would play the Test series against New Zealand as a specialist bowler. The move immediately paid off, and he took 7/37 in New Zealand's first innings in the opening Test. They were the best bowling figures by a Bangladesh player in Tests. Bangladesh lost the series 2–0, but Shakib finished as Bangladesh's leading wicket-taker in the series with 10 wickets at 17.80. Bangladesh won the opening match of the ODI series against New Zealand – securing their first ever ODI win over them – although they eventually lost the series 2–1.  Shakib finished with five wickets from three matches, making him Bangladesh's second-highest wicket-taker for the series behind Mashrafe Mortaza (7);[38] however Shakib scored just 16 runs in the series. The following month, Bangladesh toured South Africa for two Tests, three ODIs, and a T20I. While Bangladesh lost all their matches against South Africa except for an abandoned ODI,  Shakib continued to build on the good bowling form he had found against New Zealand. On the first day of the opening Test, Shakib went wicketless; on the advice of Mohammad Salauddin, Bangladesh's assistant coach, he gave the ball flight on the second day and went on to take five wickets. He took another five-wicket haul in the second Test, again as Bangladesh lost to South Africa.  Along with South Africa's Makhaya Ntini, Shakib was the series' leading wicket-taker with 11 at an average of 20.81.  Shakib's performance against South Africa in a losing cause prompted former Australian leg spin bowler Kerry O'Keefe to describe him as the "world's best finger spinner at the moment". Sri Lanka toured Bangladesh in December 2008 and January 2009 for two Tests and a Tri-nation tournament including Zimbabwe. Sri Lanka won both Tests and the tournament final,  although Shakib turned in a man of the match performance, scoring 92 not out, in the second ODI against Sri Lanka helped Bangladesh to their only victory against them on the tour. In the first match of the Test series, Shakib took another five-wicket haul as his team again was defeated. 

Vice-captaincy (2009):

At the beginning of 2009, there was speculation over Mohammad Ashraful's position as captain after a succession of defeats for Bangladesh and continuous poor form for Ashraful. Shakib was considered a possible successor by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB). However, the BCB was cautious of over-burdening the all-rounder and decided against the move. Other candidates were discounted, and Ashraful remained as captain. Later in 2009, Ashraful's captaincy was again under scrutiny after Bangladesh exited the 2009 ICC World Twenty20 in the first round following losses to Ireland and India. When Mashrafe Mortaza replaced Mohammad Ashraful in June 2009, Shakib was appointed vice-captain, filling the position vacated by Mortaza. 

Captaincy (2009–2011):

West Indies:

In Mortaza's absence through injury, Shakib led Bangladesh for the remainder of the tour.  Aged 22 years and 115 days at the start of the second Test, Shakib became Bangladesh's youngest captain and fifth youngest in the history of Test cricket. Under Shakib's leadership Bangladesh went on to win the second Test, and in the process secured their first overseas series win.  Individually Shakib performed well, earning both the player-of-the-match and player-of-the-series awards, scoring 16 and 96 not out with the bat and taking 3/59 and 5/70 with the ball.  He scored 159 runs in the series at an average of 53.00 and was Bangladesh's second highest run-scorer for the series;  his haul of 13 wickets at an average of 18.76 from both matches meant Shakib was the equal highest wicket-taker for the series along with West Indies fast bowler Kemar Roach. After winning the Test series 2–0, Bangladesh proceeded to whitewash the ODI series, winning 3–0. The West Indies' dispute remained unsolved for the whole of Bangladesh's tour and the West Indies continued to field an inexperienced side. Shakib collected two half centuries in the ODI series, averaging 45.00, and was the third highest run-scorer in the series;  he also took 2 wickets at an average of 48.00.  For his performance in the ODIs, Shakib was named the man of the series. 

England and the Asia Cup:

Over February and March 2010 England toured Bangladesh for two Tests and three ODIs. England won all of their matches against Bangladesh.  Shakib was Bangladesh's leading wicket-taker in both the Test and ODI series (9 wickets in Tests and 5 in ODIs). In the second Test, Shakib scored 49 and 96, and took 4/124 from 66 overs. Both Tests went to the final day and Shakib expressed the opinion that the experience had exhausted his side.  The match was also a source of controversy after incorrect umpiring decisions on the third day went against Bangladesh, prompting Shakib to blame the lack of a referral system for some of the team's misfortune.  In turn, Bangladesh toured England in May and July the same year. They again lost the Test series 2–0.  Shakib finished as his team's leading wicket-taker with eight wickets  although he only scored 52 runs.[80] Before the ODI series, Bangladesh left England for Sri Lanka, which was hosting the 2010 Asia Cup in June. Bangladesh lost all three of their matches. With five wickets, Shakib was Bangladesh's lead wicket-taker with Shafiul Islam   ach). 

New Zealand and Zimbabwe:

In October 2010, New Zealand went to Bangladesh for five ODIs. In the first match of the series Mortaza injured his ankle and was forced to leave the field; Shakib took over, and under his leadership Bangladesh secured a nine-run victory, during which Shakib took four wickets and scored 58. Once it emerged that Mortaza would be unable to play in the rest of the series, Shakib was made captain for the remaining matches.  In the fourth match, Shakib scored a century and took three wickets to help his team win by nine runs. Bangladesh went on to win the series 4–0,  their first series victory against a full strength ICC Full Member nation. Shakib finished the series as the player with most runs and wickets on either side: 213 runs  and 11 wickets.  Although Mortaza returned from injury in time for Zimbabwe's tour of Bangladesh in December, Shakib was retained as captain for the five-match ODI series. Following his side's defeat in the opening ODI, Shakib stated that he "was not prepared to take the job and I am also not satisfied with my role as a captain".  Bangladesh went on to win the next three complete matches, with one called off due to rain, to beat Zimbabwe 3–1  Shakib was Bangladesh's second-highest run-scorer and wicket taker for the series with 156 runs, including two half centuries, and nine wickets. 

Disciplinary issues:

In October 2010, Shakib was on 92 in the fourth ODI against New Zealand, when there was movement near the sightscreen, which the umpires failed to stop. After a few minutes Shakib, Bangladesh captain at the time, ran towards the sightscreen, hurled abuse and threatened to hit the offender with his bat.[154] He was later warned by the match referee.  In March 2011, during the world cup match against West Indies, several people in the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium grandstand complained Shakib had reacted too strongly when he was booed. The offending picture was spread over the internet and published in several newspapers. Within days of that incident, Shakib blasted former national cricketers in his Prothom Alo column. In February 2014, Shakib was fined BDT 300,000 and was handed with a three-ODI ban, because he had made an indecent gesture towards his crotch in the dressing room live on broadcast, during the second ODI against Sri Lanka.  Shakib later made a public apology statement through his official Facebook page.  In June 2014, Shakib was allegedly involved in a brawl between him and a spectator, who was allegedly harassing Shakib's wife in the grand stand of Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, during the first ODI against India. Shakib violated rules by "leaving the team dressing room during the course of an international match". Shakib later filed a case the following day regarding the incident.

International ban:

On 7 July 2014, Shakib was banned for six months from all sorts of cricket for what the Bangladesh Cricket Board described as a "severe attitude problem". Shakib will miss Bangladesh's tour of the West Indies; he will also be unable to participate in foreign tournaments until 31 December 2015.  Controversy arose when Shakib left to play for the Barbados Tridents of the Caribbean Premier League, allegedly without informing board officials and without obtaining a No Objection Certificate from the board, a claim he has denied. Shakib found himself embroiled in further controversy after a dispute with coach Chandika Hathurusingha led to rumours of him threatening to retire from Test and One Day cricket.
