Sakib's going to do pretty well in the IPL games.
He is usually at his best when he is challenged and exploring new territories.
The workload during the world cup got too much for him and the IPL would all him the chance to play some carefree cricket in a less tensed environment, surrounded by some really really good cricketers around him who can pick up the pieces if/when he messes up.
The load is off the shoulder.
This series against the Aussies, he wasnt there. His body was, mind wasnt.
A break from all this and going to IPL would be his version of perfect R&R.
I hope he regains from this post world cup hangover soon and makes his presence felt. A good show by Shakib could open doors for few more Bangladeshi players in the future.
Verily, in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest [Al-Qur'an,13:28]
