“Pakistan is Number One Team, Because They Have Three World-Class Bowlers”, Shakib Al Hassan

In the first Super 4 stage match of the Asia Cup 2023, led by Shakib Al Hasan, the Bangladesh National Cricket Team lost to the Pakistan National Cricket Team, led by Babar Azam, by 7 wickets with 63 balls remaining at Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium on Wednesday, September 6. After the match, Shakib Al Hasan expressed disappointment with his team’s batting performance, stating that they struggled against Pakistan’s strong bowling attack and played some poor shots. He acknowledged that losing four wickets in the first 10 overs on a pitch like this was not ideal and mentioned the need for better partnerships in the future matches.

Shakib Al Hasan recognized Pakistan as the number one team in the ICC ODI Rankings and praised their world-class pacers, emphasizing that when their bowlers perform well, it makes the job easier for their batsmen.

He also complimented his own bowling unit, mentioning that they have been consistently performing well. However, he noted that their batting has been inconsistent, and they need to work on maintaining stability. Shakib Al Hasan highlighted the effectiveness of their seam bowlers and mentioned that they perform better on slower pitches, hoping for a good performance in Colombo in the upcoming matches.
