Commemorating his personal experience of the like during the Nidahas Trophy, Shakib said, these situations can be evoked in the heat of the moment.

Shakib has just appeared in a single match in this year’s IPL. Acknowledging his frustration in this regard, the Bangladesh all-rounder also emphasized upon realizing the situation.

Shakib Al Hasan further stated that he is working on his fitness and form as the World Cup is approaching.
He also said, “I need to remain fit and ready for the game when I get the call. World Cup is also coming after this and I am taking a lot of motivation out of this. Will look to give it my best when my turn comes,”
“I have been doing everything I need to do to keep myself prepared. I have been training more than I generally do when I am playing. Getting stronger and fitter,” he said.
