He is one of the most consistent all-rounders in world cricket who secured his place at the top of the ICC All-rounders ranking in ODIs for a long time. He also became the No.1 Test and T20I all-rounder multiple times. Making his international debut in the year of 2006, Shakib has more than 14000 international runs and above 600 wickets for Bangladesh. He led Bangladesh in all three formats and played a huge role in the improvement of Bangladesh cricket. But what makes him even better is his performance in the IPL.
