We need to keep things in perspective here. It is exactly this kind of thinking that have led to the failures of such talented players like Aftab Ahmed, Nafis Iqbal, Mohammad Ashraful etc. We see a hint of potential and we hail these players and treat them like Viv Richards. Shakib still has a lot to improve. His batting was awful in this series barring the last innings. He threw away his wicket at a crucial point that triggered a pathetic collapse in the first test. It was only because of the opposition's lack of experience and skill that we were able to win that test match, otherwise, the way we collapsed from 321/5, during moments like these you lose the test match.

Shakib has tremendous potential no doubt, but he needs to keep his head on his shoulders and look to perform consistently over a period of time. Also he needs to bat higher up the order at 4, so when he comes in to bat, Bangladesh are only 2 down rather than 4 down.

nicely put

Hopefully by his 38th Birthday when he is at the brink of retirement, his name will be taken in the same breath as Allan Border and Imran Khan.

Hopefully he will be knighted by the Queen like Allan Border (hope he being brown doesn't hinder that). The royal cow needs to knight someone decent to make up for knighting Rushdie.

I remember his debut with Farhad Reza and liked him immediately.

We have seen his GOD gifted hand-eye coordination in other batters also, but nobody other than Tamim has applied that natural talent any better. His batting is at times is Miandad-ugly but just as effective. Fortune favors the intelligently bold, and more often than not, he will get away with things others won't. That's the way certain guys simply are. Also look at Sehwag and Gayle with their poor footwork often negated by the amazing ability to play length without fear.

Definitely the first great captain in our history. Also the the best bowler (echoing Spitty's sentiments here). Batting wise I have the ever improving Tamim Iqbal ahead of him with GoBoy following behind, but character wise, no matter what he's doing on the field, nobody comes even close.

The best is yet too come. I hope GOD keeps me alive to see what he'll do between 27 and 35 ...

And I hope GOD keeps me alive and kicking to see you see Shakib between his 27 and 35.

Importantly, May GOD keeps Shakib alive and kicking for our pleasure

Whatever dude, I liked him even before you. I visited him hospital room when he was born and proclaimed him the new King, I brought him gifts carried on a camel and I followed the northern star to the hospital.

I don't know talent wise, but temperamentally he surely seems to be the best we have seen. He seems very level headed and never buckles under pressure. We need to give less credence to talent and more weight on temperament. Players who can perform under pressure.
But i also agree with some that we don't need this hero worshiping. Understand the man is not a superman and he will fail every now and then.

Better not compare Ash with Sakib .
Sakib is always more consistent than Ash & Sakib is also a grt bwlr.
Sakib is competing with intrntnl plyrs so he is dffrnt.

In agreement here.

He should be able to put his name on that board when its all said and done. Until then- 1. Bashar 2. Rafiq 3. Nannu/Akram Khan/ Athar Ali Khan.

Yes of course it is time now to hero-worship a successful guy and make expectations really high for ourselves after defeating a 2nd string team even whose 1st string team is highly inconsistent. But I believe Shakib has his feet grounded. I wanted Shakib as captain long time back ;

I am not sure whether Sakib is THE best cricketer BD has ever produced or not. But he is definitely ONE of the best.

But if u mention abt the current time, then yes, Sakib is THE best cricketer.
