Bangladesh’s premier all-rounder, Shakib Al Hasan, has etched his name in the record books of One-Day Internationals (ODIs) once again. He has become only the third cricketer in the history of the format to score 7000 runs and take 300 wickets. This feat was achieved by Shakib during the first ODI against Ireland, held at Sylhet.
Prior to this monumental achievement, only two players, Sanath Jayasuriya and Shahid Afridi had accomplished this incredible feat in ODIs. With this latest accomplishment, Shakib has further cemented his position as one of the greatest all-rounders to have ever played the game.
Shakib Al Hasan has become the second-highest run-scorer for Bangladesh in ODI cricket, with 7000 runs under his belt. The only player to have scored more runs in the format for Bangladesh is Tamim Iqbal, who has amassed 8146 runs.
