    Bangladesh’s ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan’s abilities with the bat and ball are well known and while those attributes overshadow his abilities on the field, his sharpness on the field cannot be looked down upon. Having injured his little finger on the left hand during this year’s tri-series final against Sri Lanka, Bangladesh’s Test and T20 captain has been suffering and pulled out of the Asia Cup mid-way through the tournament. Currently recuperating from injury, he has returned to training and Bangladesh’s fielding consultant Ryan Cook said that Shakib, despite still having issues with his finger, is showing great attitude while fielding.
