Shakib Al Hasan: Bangladesh team could not perform well in the ODI World Cup 2023. The team won only 2 out of 9 matches. The team qualified for the Champions Trophy by finishing eighth. Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan also did not perform well. He was a flop with ball and bat. During the ODI World Cup 2023, he got injured in the match against Sri Lanka. After this he did not play the last match of the World Cup. Currently, he is recovering from the injury, but it is not yet clear when he will return.

Shakib Al Hasan will contest elections

Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan will contest the country’s 12th parliamentary election after receiving confirmation of his nomination from the ruling Awami League, reports ESPNcricinfo. He will contest from Magura-1 constituency, where polling is scheduled on January 7. But cricket duty may come in the way of his decision to contest the elections. Because Bangladesh team will play two home test matches against New Zealand from 28 November to 10 December. After this, Bangladesh team will tour New Zealand from 11 to 31 December. Even before the World Cup, Shakib had said that he will remain the captain of the T20 team. In such a situation, it will be interesting to see whether he leaves the election campaign and visits New Zealand or not. Bangladesh has to play three T20 matches against New Zealand.

These players have tried their hand in politics

Before Shakib Al Hasan, former Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza also became MP from Narail during the last elections. Mashrafe received nomination again this year. Murtaza was involved in community activities in his district for many years. But Shakib had no connection with politics before this. Apart from Shakib and Mashrafe, BCB president Nazmul Hasan has been an MP since 2009. He once again got nomination from his Kishoreganj constituency. BCB director Shafiul Alam Choudhary also got nomination from Moulvibazar seat.

Shakib Al Hasan has played cricket in all three formats for Bangladesh. He has won many matches for Bangladesh team on his own. Shakib has taken 4454 runs and 233 wickets in 66 Test matches, 7570 runs and 317 wickets in 247 ODI matches, 2382 runs and 140 wickets in 1167 T20 matches for Bangladesh.
