Record man Shakib continues to rewrite history

Shakib is the only cricketer who have scored 1,000 runs (1,718) and taken 100 wickets (102) in T20Is

Ace all-rounder Shakib al Hasan has had a remarkable series overall as he was adjudged man of the series for his all-round performance.

The left-hander batted quite well in the second and third game of the series.

As for his bowling, he surprisingly got hammered for five sixes in an over by Australian batsman Daniel Christian in the fourth game where Bangladesh lost for the only time this series.

Shakib had never been hit for five sixes in an over in any format in his entire career, whether in international or franchise or in domestic cricket.

But the champion bowler came back strongly in the fifth game with a four-wicket haul conceding just nine runs in 3.4 overs.

By doing so, Shakib touched yet another milestone in his glittering career, which no other player has managed to do so in T20I cricket.

Shakib is now the only cricketer who have scored 1,000 runs (1,718) and taken 100 wickets (102) in T20Is.

In terms of wickets, only Lasith Malinga is ahead of Shakib with 107 wickets from 83 innings.
