Asked how it felt when Sri Lanka’s World Cup winning captain Arjuna Ranatunga had mentioned about how Bangladesh could win the 2023 World Cup, Shakib said: “Preparations are going on nice and I think we have a very good chance in 2019 World Cup too.

Shakib was also asked about his one major cricket regret, and he came out with this saying: “Ahh! There are actually two. 2012 Asia Cup Final where we lost to Pakistan by two runs. And the T20 World Cup game against India.”
Shakib rated to win a World Cup over a Test series victory, even if it comes against the No.1 side in the world, or away from home.
