Shakib Al Hasan is one of the best players of the world and is an ICON in Bangladesh. Its been years that he is been dominating the all-rounder ranking and is in the top list of many fans. Its only natural that with his kind of play and such great performance in the field, he will be making records and he has a lot of things to show for himself by his name.
Once again, he just makes another record that only few players in the world has been able to touch and that is getting 400 or more wickets in all 3 formats of the game combined. In truth, there is only a handful of bowlers that even get this many wickets.
Before that, lets take a look at the stats of this amazing player.
Wickets –
• ODI – 206
• Test – 147
• T20 – 47

He is the top wicket taker in Bangladesh history in both Test cricket and T20. He is only trailing by 1 wickets from being the best ion ODI as well. So, basically, he is the best bowler of Bangladesh in all format and its only natural that he would break through a record at an international level as well.
Before Shakib only two other left handed spinners managed to touch this record of 400+ international wickets. Not only has that only 10 spinners in the history of cricket managed to reach this milestone. Of course, Shakib will be getting plenty of chance to get past even 500+ wickets if he continues at the rate he is going.
