In the ongoing encounter between England and Bangladesh at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, Shakib Al Hasan delivered a pivotal breakthrough for Bangladesh by dismissing England’s explosive opener, Jonny Bairstow. Bairstow, who had been in impressive form, scored a well-crafted 52 runs from 59 deliveries before falling victim to Shakib’s masterful delivery.

The critical moment occurred during the 18th over when Shakib bowled a clever length delivery that wasn’t overly full. This precise length meant that Bairstow couldn’t easily move forward on his front foot. Instead, he decided to go back for a flick, but Shakib’s delivery had something extra – pace.

As the ball zipped off the pitch, it rushed past the inside edge of Bairstow’s bat with lightning speed. In a breathtaking turn of events, the ball thundered into the leg stump, dramatically dislodging the bails. It was a dismissal that showcased the skill and precision of Shakib Al Hasan’s bowling.
