#5 Shakib Al Hasan
One of Bangladesh's senior most players, Shakib Al Hasan has been exemplary with the bat in the World Cup so far. Shakib has showed why he is the number one ranked all-rounder in the World. The former Bangladesh skipper played a crucial knock in his team's remarkable victory against South Africa.
He then made 64 runs against New Zealand before scoring a scintillating century against England. Even though both the innings went in vain as Bangladesh lost both the matches, Shakib kept Bangladesh in the game till he was at the crease. The left-hand batsman is currently the leading run-scorer with 260 runs. The team management should also be credited for Shakib's superlative performance as they provided him the opportunity to bat at number 3. Shakib is going to be important for Bangladesh's chances in the tournament.
