Sunrisers Hyderabad celebrate Shakib’s birthday, gets surprise birthday wish
From ringing the bells at the Eden Gardens to celebrating the birthday with Sunrisers Hyderabad, Shakib Al Hasan had a delightful today despite his side lost their opener against his former side Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
The day started for Shakib with the sweetest way because as the all-rounder got the opportunity to ring bell at Eden Gardens before the start of their first match. It has been an old tradition at the Eden Gardens to ring bell before starting matches.
Then after the end of the match, he got an amazing surprise birthday wish from his daughter. Some members from the Hyderabad team came to Shakib’s room and showed him that video and he was in all smiles.
Sunrisers Hyderabad also celebrated Shakib’s birthday after the match by cutting a cake where all the members of the team including the coaching staff were present.
However, the day could have been better for the all-rounder if his side would have won their opening game. They were well set to win the game, but Andre Russell stole the victory with a thunderous knock. Needing 14 runs off the last over, Shakib bowled it and conceded two sixes to see Kolkata take away the game with 6 wickets in hand.
