Shakib Al Hasan is a Bangladeshi international cricketer. Also known as Shakibul Hasan, is an all-rounder, batting left-handed in the middle order and bowling slow left-arm orthodox. He has represented Bangladesh at under-19 level, 18 Youth One Day Internationals between 2005 and 2006. Shakib made his One Day International (ODI) debut against Zimbabwe in August 2006, and his Test debut the following May against India. Shakib took the best bowling figures by a Bangladesh player in Tests, 7 wickets for 36 runs, during a match against New Zealand in 2008. Shakib was appointed Bangladesh's vice-captain in June 2009. He was named The Wisden Cricketer's "Test Player of the Year" in November 2009. In July 2010, he stepped down from the ODI captaincy to concentrate on his personal performance. Domestically Shakib has represented Khulna Division since 2004, and in 2010 he spent several months playing for Worcestershire in England, becoming the first Bangladeshi player to represent an English county. For the 2011 Indian Premier League, Shakib was contracted by Kolkata Knight Riders. In the 2012 Bangladesh Premier League, he captained Khulna Royal Bengals. From January 2009 to April 2011 and again from March 2012, Shakib was ranked first amongst ODI all-rounders by the ICC. In December 2011, he became the world's top-ranked Test all-rounder.
