Shakib to return after IPL conquests

Sports Reporter

Ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan will return to Dhaka today after putting up a splendid all-round performance in the Indian Premier League and helping his side, the Kolkata Knight Riders, lift the title for the second time in three years.
Shakib, who scored 227 runs and took eleven wickets at an economy rate of 6.68, put in his best ever performance in the IPL this year. He was also awarded the CEAT Best All-rounder award in T20 cricket.
The left-hander put in a number of match-winning performances in the IPL this year and also hit his highest score -- a match-winning 60 against Bangalore.
In the final, Shakib was the most economical bowler for KKR, giving away just 26 runs in his four overs, even as opponents Kings XI Punjab powered to 199.
