The upcoming series opener against the Aussies will be BD's top allrounder's 50th test match.

Which of his previous 49 tests were too memorable for you?

For me, it has be those back-to-back matches in the West Indies in 2009, the series where I watched from the 1st ball to the last.

117 against SL.

all of these + two back to back 5 wk hall vs SA in SA
96 in 69 balls vs SL in tri series where we lost to ZIM and had to beat SL by 25 overs in order to qualify for the finals
2010 NZ series where he became only the 2nd player in ODI history to score 200+ runs and take 10+ wickets in a two team series consisting of less than 5 matches
that 3 wicket over vs ENG which sealed our 1st test win vs G8

He knows he has underachieved. I remember that 144 against Pakistan, and that innings was full of class!!! he was on course for 200 until his partner (mushy) ran him out!!! I rate that his best test knock. With the ball, those back-to-back five wicket hauls away to South Africa. Shakib has yet to play a test against Australia despite playing for over ten years.

Shakib was playing like Shakib :facepalm: . I just wonder how such a reckless and streaky batsman accumulates so many runs against good bowling attack and in trying conditions. He must be doing something right (I don't know what as I am not an expert)

Does it in 50 games, second closest is Ian Botham and Garry Sobers in 63 games.

If gets 5 wickets against Australia, he will equal Herath, Murali, and Steyn. Plus he will have the chance to go ahead them by getting 5fers against Ireland & Afghanistan.

This is literally his first (and maybe last) shot at Australia. How many chances did those guys get before their 5fers?

This is my problem with cricket. It's unfair to compare milestones or totals because some countries just play more. This is why the India centric cricinfo media loves "total runs" and "total wickets," it over inflates their own players because no one plays more than India.

I prefer "fastest to" and career averages, which are much better indicators.

He will be the fastest to 5000 runs in 250 wks in Odi cricket..the current fastest is abdur razzaq who achived it in 258 matches..shakib needs 27 runs and 26 wickets..he currently has played 177 matches

If he can take 26 wickets and score 27 runs in 22 matches he'll achive this all rounding feat in less than 200 matches..just looking at the current fastest who took 250+ matches makes you wonder how special shakib's feat is

By the way, I liked the way he celebrated Lyon's wicket. Even though it's only a night watchman, but it shows he is pumped and in his zone.

Let's give a big hand to those who think Shak isn't worthy of being in the conversation of ATG's. Kudos to the folks for at least trying to understand the game. Now stop wasting your time and torturing your brain cells. Start following the great sport of Ludo. Then please come back and enlighten us about the different nuances of that great sport and strategies that make ATG Ludo players.

I'm not going to waste my time pulling stats because they simply don't matter to them. Couple of random thoughts; in tests Shak's batting avg against Zim is actually lower than his overall avg of 40+. If T20 performance should be the yard stick for ATG'ness, Afridi>>>Tendulkar by a country mile.

He could've done it less than fifty matches had he got to play Australia a lot sooner which is why stats aren't everything because you need to take other factors into account. I'm surprised he's not that far ahead in terms of ranking points ahead of the other players when he's clearly the undisputed #1 all-rounder of the world. He could've even scored a test 100 against every test playing nation had he gotten enough matches to play. Fact is he's right up there amongst the best all-rounders of all time – top ten.

I'm against labeling anyone as an all time anything until there career is over. But I do believe that Shakib would walk into the New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, West Indies, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Zim sides based on present form. Only India with its ridiculous batting line-up and the Jaddu/Ashwin combo, and Engerland with its Moeen/Stokes combo are squads where he wouldn't be an automatic starter. He is easily one of the most consistent and high-achieving cricketer of this last 10 years.

Excerpt:

Not that Shakib has tried to force the issue on anyone, but the numbers and list of achievements are growing. He played a central role in Bangladesh's thrilling 20-run win in the first Test against Australia. In Bangladesh's first innings, he struck a fifty and strung together a counter-attacking partnership with Tamim Iqbal to lift them from 10 for 3. He was then a constant threat in both of Australia's innings, and finished with a second 10-wicket haul.

Before Shakib, only Richard Hadlee had achieved a ten-for and fifty in a Test more than once. Shakib also became the fourth bowler to take a five-for against nine teams. Three years ago, he became the fourth cricketer to score a hundred and take 10 wickets in a Test. Shakib took the fewest Tests to achieve the double of 3000 runs and 150 wickets, and is one of a rare group to have a bowling average lower than the batting average.

At the end of the day, any way you slice it, the stats constantly back up Shakib. Any category you bring up, he's always either the top or near the top of all rounders. To say he's not ATG is to say that no all-rounder is ATG.

Shakib is not considered by many fans of other countries (especially sub continent ones) as a great all rounder because he is from Bangladesh, even Harsha Bhogle said it. These people are always trying to find some holes in the ICC rankings or what oppositon he is playing or playing locally etc etc.

I doubt some even know the true deifiniton of an all rounder.

TBH I dont care what those people say or think. He has and is doing amazing for his team and thats what counts. He is a player who has played all over the world and decision makers know his capability.

InshahAllah by the end of his career, I am sure he will leave with the respect and stats to prove that there will be few more ever like him :flag:
