“Shakib is the best player in Bangladesh, one of the best all-rounders in the history of the world. I have been watching Shakib from a very age-based cricket. I played many matches together in Bangladesh team. Shakib has taken his performance in the World Cup to a unique height. This was his fourth World Cup. What could be a bigger event than the World Cup to gain immortality in history!”

Shakib Al Hasan scored 708 runs with the bat and took 11 wickets with the bat in the World Cup. He set a lot of records in that world cup version. Even after such a performance, he did not get the title of the best of the tournament, which surprised Nafees.

Nafees said, ‘I am the first Bangladeshi in the 2019 World Cup to work as an ESPNcricinfo expert. Bangladesh has also shown some great performances in this World Cup. I think I am very surprised that Shakib has not been selected as the Player of the Tournament for his all-round performance with bat and ball. ‘

“I think Shakib was the best player in the 2019 World Cup. Hopefully, after a long hiatus, Shakib will return to international cricket in October. Good luck to Shakib.” said Nafees.
