Shakib scores his 100th fifty

Shakib Al Hasan

Shakib Al Hasan has scored his 100th half-century in international cricket.

Bangladesh, in their vital T20 World Cup encounter against the Netherlands, were in the back foot after losing two early wickets.

Shakib took the helm and elevated the pressure put on by the Dutch bowlers with sensible batting.

The all-rounder picked up a 38-ball fifty, leaving behind a couple of low scores in recent games.

Shakib guided Bangladesh to a competitive total of 159 runs as he ended his inning at 64, not out.

He last scored a half-century against Pakistan in October 2022. This is his 13th fifty in the T20 format for his country.
