Shakib fulfils long-cherished dream
Bangladesh star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has hogged the spotlights for mixed reasons in the past few days.
Amid controversy over his recent Dubai trip, Shakib played a scintillating 93-run knock against Ireland in the first ODI of the three-match series at the Sylhet International Stadium on Saturday and, in the process, reached a milestone of scoring 7k ODI runs.
On Sunday, the 35-year-old cricketer pulled off another success story by completing his graduation in BBA from the American International University-Bangladesh (AIUB).
Shakib in his speech during the convocation ceremony on Sunday said that he was delighted as he fulfilled a long-cherished dream. He was searching for words while trying to express his emotion and the Tigers talisman compared the feeling with achieving Test cap. "When you dream, you dream it big and honestly work to achieve the goal," said Shakib, who recalled his mother's inspiration behind this success.
Shakib completed his school and college from the Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Protishtan (BKSP). Another national cricketer in Anamul Haque Bijoy also attended the AIUB's convocation ceremony as a graduate.
