Shakib started his professional cricket journey in 2004 when he was selected to play for Khulna in the National Domestic League. He made his debut in First Class cricket while playing for Bangladesh Cricket Board XI against Zimbabwe at Chittagong on 1 January 2005. In 92 First Class Matches, Shakib has scored 5777 runs with 8 centuries and 34 half centuries. Also, he has taken 310 wickets with 23 5-wicket hauls and 2 10-wicket hauls.
Shakib Al Hasan made his Test debut against India in Chattogram in May 2007, and since then, he has gone on to establish himself as the greatest all-round cricketer that Bangladesh have ever produced.
In 2008, Shakib became just the 2nd Bangladeshi player to take 7 or more wickets in an innings, when he claimed 7-36 against New Zealand in Chittagong.
Shakib was appointed Test skipper in 2009, and in his first game in charge, he produced an all-round performance- 8 wickets & 96*- to help Bangladesh secure their maiden overseas series win- vs West Indies in Grenada.
He scored his maiden Test hundred in Hamilton against New Zealand in February 2010 to give further account of his abilities.
Shakib was removed from Test captaincy after Bangladesh lost a one-off game to Zimbabwe in 2011. But, he continued to remain a vital member of the side as a player.
In 2012, Shakib became just the 2nd Bangladeshi bowler to take 100 Test wickets, and the leading wicket-taker for his country at the time. He also became the fastest all-rounder to complete a double of 1000 runs and 100 wickets, achieving the milestone in just 28 Tests.
Two years later, Shakib registered another glorious feat as he became just the 3rd player in history to score 100 runs and claim 10 wickets in a Test. He achieved it against Zimbabwe.
In 2016, the left-arm orthodox proved a perfect foil to Mahedy Hasan as he claimed 12 wickets in 2 games, helping Bangladesh to claim their maiden Test win over England.
In 2017, Shakib became just the 3rd Bangladeshi batter to score a Test double-hundred when he hammered a brutal 217 against New Zealand in Wellington. However, as it turned out, it didn't prove to be enough for Bangladesh to win, even save the match.
He was reinstalled as captain in December 2017 following Mushfiqur Rahim's resignation. However, in 2019, he lost his post as he was handed a 12-month suspension from international cricket for his failure to report a bookie's approach to the ICC's Anti-Corruption Unit.
Post his comeback after the ban, Shakib became a reluctant Test player but with Bangladesh's performances being woeful under Mominul Haque, he was cajoled to assume leadership responsibilities in June 2022 following his brilliant performance in the Test series against Sri Lanka.
One of the greatest all-rounders to have ever played this format, Shakib Al Hasan made his ODI debut against Zimbabwe in August 2006.
A classy left-handed batter blessed with the ability to take down spin and pace with equal disdain coupled with his disciplined slow left-arm orthodox spin, Shakib Al Hasan is a dream player to have in any white-ball team.
Shakib made his maiden ODI century against Canada just before the 2007 World Cup in the West Indies.
Bangladesh had a memorable World Cup campaign as they pulled off shocking wins over India and South Africa played a massive role in both those victories. He delivered 10 disciplined overs against India which cost just 44 besides claiming 2 crucial wickets against the Proteas.
His century against Pakistan later that year further showcased his prowess, and by the time 2009 rolled around, Al Hasan established himself as one of the top all-rounders in world cricket.
Shakib was exceptional with both bat and ball during the 2010 ODI series against New Zealand, and it helped Bangladesh inflict a 4-0 whitwash over the BlackCaps.
Shakib led Bangladesh to victories over England, Netherlands and Ireland in the 2011 World Cup, but the group-stage exit followed by a series defeat in Zimbabwe proved to be a death knell for his captaincy.
However, he continued to spearhead Bangladesh with both bat and ball. His all-round performance in the 2012 Asia Cup- 237 runs & 6 wickets- helped Bangladesh qualify for the finals, which they eventually lost to Pakistan. Shakib was adjudged 'Player of the Tournament and in the process, he also reclaimed the No.1 ranking for all-rounders from Australia's Shane Watson.
In 2014, Shakib was handed a three match suspension by the BCB for making obscene gestures on live TV during an ODI against Sri Lanka. Later that year, he got involved in a brawl with a spectator at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium, and was subsequently banned by the board for 6 months from all forms of the game. The ban was eventually reduced to three and a half months.
Shakib played a huge role in Bangladesh's success in the ODI format post the 2015 World Cup. He was a big part of the team that won three home series against India, Pakistan and South Africa in 2015, but it was his performances at the 2019 event that truly established him as an all-time ODI legend.
Batting at No.3, Shakib hammered as many as many 606 runs @ 86.57 with 5 50s and 2 100s besides claiming 11 wickets. He became the first player to complete a double of 400 runs + 10 wickets in a single edition of the World Cup.

The Bangladeshi superstar is the leading wicket-taker in international T20s and is the only cricketer to achieve a double of 2000+ runs and 100+ wickets.
He is also the leading wicket-taker in T20 World Cup history. In 30 innings at the quadrennial event, the slow left-arm orthodox has taken 41 wickets at 17.29 apiece while conceding just 6.43 runs per over.
Shakib is also Bangladesh's leading run-scorer in T20 World Cups- 698 runs in 31 innings @ 26.84/124.64 with 3 50+ scores.
Shakib has captained Bangladesh’s T20I team in three different stints, with the current tenure having started in August 2022. He was first appointed skipper in all three formats in 2009 but was sacked two years following underwhelming results and a fallout with the board.
He regained leadership duties in 2017 following Mashrafe Mortaza’s retirement from the shortest format. Shakib’s 2nd tenure ended prematurely in 2019 when ICC handed a one-year suspension from the game for not reporting a corrupt approach. He was replaced by middle-order batter Mahmudullah.
Under Mahmudullah, Bangladesh’s T20I team struggled badly, and he was eventually relieved of his duties, months before the 2022 World Cup. Later, the BCB announced that the spin-bowling all-rounder would lead his nation in the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup in Australia.
Overall, Shakib has led Bangladesh in 26 T20Is and his side has emerged victorious in just 7 of them.
