Shakib Al Hasan became the first player in history to have scored 500 runs and scalp 10 wickets in one edition of World Cup.

Bangladesh ace all-rounder Shakib was 24 runs shy off the 500-run mark in this World Cup. He reached the milestone when he pulled a Hardik Pandya delivery behind square towards deep fine leg to take a single in the 18th over of the Tigers’ ongoing game against India at Edgbaston in Birmingham today.

Shakib became the 10th batsman to have scored 500 runs in one edition of World Cup to join the elite list of players.

  1. I’m not sure exactly why but this web site is loading very
    slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it
    a issue on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still
    exists.

  2. I don’t even know how I finished up right here, however I assumed this put up used to be great.
    I don’t recognize who you might be but certainly you are
    going to a famous blogger should you are not already.
    Cheers!

  3. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just
    sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any points for beginner blog writers?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

  4. Generally I do not read post on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very forced me to try and do so! Your writing style has been amazed me. Thanks, quite nice article.

  5. You are so awesome! I don’t suppose I have read something like this before.
    So wonderful to find someone with a few original thoughts on this issue.

    Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up. This site is
    something that is needed on the web, someone with a bit
    of originality!

  6. Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve
    had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options
    for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good
    platform.

  7. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favourite justification seemed to
    be at the internet the easiest thing to take into account of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about issues that they plainly do
    not understand about. You managed to hit the
    nail upon the highest as neatly as defined out the entire thing with no need side effect , other people could
    take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks ps4 games https://bit.ly/3z5HwTp ps4 games
