The Historic 50th Wicket for Shakib Al Hasan

Shakib’s milestone came during a high-pressure spell where he conceded 37 runs in three overs. His sole wicket in the game was a crucial one, claiming the scalp of Indian skipper Rohit Sharma.

Shakib expertly lured Rohit into a slog, resulting in a thick outside edge that landed safely in the hands of Jaker Ali.

This wicket marked Shakib’s 50th in the T20 World Cup, a testament to his enduring skill and consistency in the tournament.

Chasing Legends: Shakib Al Hasan Rivals

Standing closest to Shakib’s impressive tally is former Pakistani all-rounder Shahid Afridi.

Who amassed 39 wickets during his T20 World Cup career.

Afridi’s record was once considered formidable, but Shakib’s perseverance and talent have set a new benchmark.

Following Afridi is Sri Lanka’s iconic speedster, Lasith Malinga, renowned for his deadly yorkers, who secured 38 wickets in the tournament.

Wanindu Hasaranga: The Next Challenger

Sri Lanka’s current captain, Wanindu Hasaranga, is on the brink of surpassing Malinga’s record. With 37 wickets to his name, Hasaranga needed just one more to level with Malinga.

However, Sri Lanka’s early exit in the group stage means Hasaranga must wait until the 2026 edition to continue his pursuit of history.

Other Notable Bowlers

Among the top wicket-takers, Pakistan’s spinner Saeed Ajmal holds the fifth position with 36 wickets in just 23 games.

Ajmal’s remarkable strike rate and economy have made him one of the most effective bowlers in the history of the T20 World Cup.

Bangladesh’s Battle Against India

Despite Shakib’s historic achievement, the match against India was a tough one for Bangladesh. After winning the toss and opting to field, Bangladesh struggled to contain India’s explosive batting lineup.

Hardik Pandya’s unbeaten 50 off 27 deliveries, complemented by key contributions from Virat Kohli (37), Shivam Dube (34), and Rishabh Pant (36), propelled India to a formidable total of 196/5.

A Struggle in Pursuit

In their chase, Bangladesh faced a disciplined Indian bowling attack.

Skipper Najmul Hossain Shanto’s valiant 40 was the highlight of Bangladesh’s innings, but the rest of the batters failed to build momentum.

Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh, and Kuldeep Yadav’s combined efforts secured a comprehensive 50-run victory for India, leaving Bangladesh to reflect on missed opportunities.

Reflecting on the Future

Shakib Al Hasan’s historic achievement brings hope and pride to Bangladesh cricket, even in the face of defeat. His journey serves as an inspiration for future generations of cricketers.

As fans and enthusiasts, we celebrate Shakib’s record but also look forward to the next exciting chapters in T20 World Cup history.
