Shakib jumps to No. 2 in ICC Test all-rounder rankings
Bangladesh captain Shakib al Hasan has moved closer to re-claiming his crown as the best all-rounder in Test cricket by jumping up to second on the latest list of ICC MRF Tyres Test Player Rankings.
Shakib moved up two spots to second on the latest all-rounder rankings that were released by the ICC on Wednesday, with India left-hander Ravindra Jadeja the only player now in front of him.
Shakib has been in action for Bangladesh in the ongoing Test series against West Indies in the Caribbean and the 35-year-old produced an excellent performance with the bat in particular during the first Test of the two-match series.
The Bangladesh skipper top-scored in the first innings with a stylish 51 and backed that up in the second innings with an even more impressive knock of 63 that helped force West Indies to bat a second time.
If Shakib was to re-claim the top ranking for all-rounders it would cap off a massive turnaround for one of Bangladesh's greatest players of all time.
