Shakib Al HASAN

Shakib Al Hasan is the captain of reformed Bangladesh team in World Cup 2011. Under his captaincy Bangladesh has done reasonably well. Shakib is a kind of captain who leads from the front and set examples by his own performances. He is currently among top 10 all-rounders of the world according to ICC Cricket Rankings. He is left hand batsmen and left-arm slow bowler. He is very good strategist and have very cool head on his shoulder. He is inspirational captain. He bailed out Bangladesh many times when they were in trouble. Last year was best for Shakib in terms of personal performance as well as team performance. He will be hoping top do well in this World Cup as a player and  captain. I will not be surprise if he will win few man of the match awards and he has the advantage of  playing all the league matches at home.
Career-best performance:
Batting: 134* v/s Canada at  St. John’s  in 2007
Bowling: 33-4  v/s New Zealand at Christchurch in 2010
Bangladesh is no more minnows now. They are emerging as one of the finest team in the World Cricket under the captaincy of Shakib Al Hasan. They are coming into this World Cup with 2 back to back  ODI series victories under their belt out of which one series win against New Zealand in which they whitewashed Kiwi team 4-0 at home. They won another series against Zimbabwe. Last year was quite good for Bangladesh cricket as climbed to 8th spot in ICC Cricket rankings and ahead of West Indies. They have clear advantage of playing at home in this World Cup and if they are capable of advancing to semi-finals this time round. They have brilliant team and they have bowling which is perfectly suited to the conditions and pitches of sub-continent. Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan are the two players who can make big difference in coming World Cup. Watch out reformed Bangladesh team in World Cup 2011. I believe if any team will take Bangladesh  team lightly then that team will make big mistake. Bangla tigers are roaring and raring to go for kill in World Cup.
Key Players for Bangladesh:  Shakib AL Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudullah, Abdur Razzak and Mohammad Ashrful
