Top 5 T20I performances of the year
#4 Shakib Al Hasan
Shakib-Al-Hasan is arguably the biggest matchwinner for Bangladesh in the limited overs format. He can win matches for his team with his left arm spin bowling and he is equally capable of winning matches with the bat.
24 April, 2015. It was the only T20 between Bangladesh and Pakistan. Pakistan were batting first and their hopes for a big score were thwarted by some excellent bowling from the Bangladeshi bowlers. Shakib opened the bowling for Bangladesh and his miserly figures of 0 for 17 in four overs played a crucial role in restricting Pakistan to a manageable score of 141.
While chasing, Bangladesh lost Soumya Sarkar in the first over and Shakib came out at number three. His innings of 57 not out in 41 balls ensured that his team doesn’t suffer any hiccup in their chase and the score of 141 was overhauled by Bangladesh in just 16.2 overs.
It was a true all-round effort from one of the best limited-overs all-rounder in the world.
