Recommended Bet: Back Shakib Al-Hasan to be Bangladesh’s Top Bowler @ 4.33 with Betway
The thing about Shakib is that he rarely disappoints.
He’ll either make a serious contribution with the bat, or he’ll do it with the ball. Very often both.
In the last match, it was the middle one: getting out to a good delivery for just 11 but putting in a huge performance with the ball, taking 1-13 from his four overs. How the Tigers wish he could bowl more than four overs. Or that they had another Shakib.
He was our tip at 5.2 to be their top bowler and to say we were unlucky not to win is putting it mildly.
He took one wicket, as did M. Hossain and M. Saifuddin.
Now, as per Betway market rules, if two or more players take the same number of wickets, it goes down to the number of runs conceded.
Shakib conceded 13, Hossain just 12. See why we were unlucky?
But it’s worth persisting with the man who is their best bowler to get it right this time. Shakib it is.

They’ll look back at their game against Afghanistan as a case of what might have been.
Had they scored another 15 runs, they may well have won. Had they taken just one more wicket in the final overs, they may have won.
Despite posting just 127, at one stage when defending, they were favourites as Afghanistan lost wickets and fell behind the run rate before a flurry of sixes downed Bangladesh and in the end it wasn’t quite as tight as it could have been.
The big problem was a failure by the top order to build a platform.
Their two big guns- Shakib Al-Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim- were out for 11 and 1- and they never recovered from that.
With the ball, they put in a spirited effort with Shakib (1-13) brilliant as usual but he bowled his four overs too early in a bid to put their opponents under pressure and the other bowlers were more expensive.
There’s no quick fix other than just to hope they can bat better next time.
