We all had a feeling that Bangladesh will win against Afghanistan, but by no means did anyone think that Shakib Al Hasan will single-handedly lead his nation to a win.
Fifty with the bat followed by a five-wicket-haul with the ball is just impeccable.
When it comes to talking about the most valuable player of the tournament, then Shakib Al Hasan will surely edge past the rest of the players in terms of contribution in the World Cup this year.
As a result of the 62 run win versus Afghanistan, Bangladesh now has seven points in seven games while moving fifth to the points table.
So, they have massive games against Pakistan and India coming ahead.
If Bangladesh manages to beat Pakistan, then the game versus India will be an absolute sell out and will build considerable hype.
One thing that is certain now for Bangladesh cricket is that they are no longer branded as “minnows” in the international circuit.
