Bangladesh’s veteran all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan witnessed himself landing in a controversy as he didn’t join the team for an official photo session for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament. Moreover, Bangladesh lost the practice game against Ireland Wolves where Shakib was leading the side.
Playing in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) and then in the Indian Premier League (IPL) didn’t benefit him much as the 32-year failed to make an impact which obviously raised concerns on his form before stepping into a crucial competition.
However, former captain and current chief selector Habibul Bashar came to Shakib’s rescue as the 46-year old reiterated that there is nothing to be worried about the Jessore born cricketer. Reviewing the matter, Habibul Bashar added that Shakib is an extremely professional player who understands the art of delivering at big stages. Furthermore, the Kushtia born isn’t fazed by the switch of format as he backed Shakib to shine in the forthcoming mega-event.
