I think Shakib's rating is rather high. Yes he bowled for long spells. But he did not use his resources well. Continued to hand the ball to Razzak while Naeem remained available. Did not mix SLA and offspinners often when had that option available. He should have opted chew up sessions rather than go for kamiakzee shot that ended his superb innings. His field setting was not great in the fourth innings. He could not have gotten them out so should have packed the boundaries more.
