Shakib Al Hasan May 21, 2012

'I like football more than cricket'

Is the world's top allrounder trapped in the wrong sport? Hear it from the man himself
105

What is the secret to being the best allrounder in the world?
Keep working hard, keep doing the right things, and try and contribute to your team.

You spent a lot of your teenage years at boarding school. What are the advantages of staying away from home?
You become independent because you have to do lots of things by yourself. If you are home, your family will try and do it all for you.

Did you ever cook for your parents when they came to visit you in Dhaka?
I can only cook omelettes. That is the best I can do.

Tell us something we don't know about you.
I always say what is in my heart. I try to control myself but on certain occasions I can't hold it in. I am very emotional.

Has there been a time when you lost your temper while captaining Bangladesh?
I remember during the 2011 World Cup, I made some comments against some former Bangladesh players who were critical of me. I reacted strongly. I do regret that now. At that moment it felt like the right thing, but I have grown up now, I think differently.

Five-for or a hundred?
When I got the seven-wicket haul against New Zealand in Chittagong, I was ecstatic. But I will always put a hundred over a five-for because I do not need to work hard on my bowling. That is not the case when it comes to batting.

Do you have a hobby outside of cricket?
I like football more than cricket, seriously. I am football-crazy. I would stay up late to follow soccer in Europe. Barcelona, always. If the team hotels do not have football on TV, I will follow it on the internet. I have never been to Camp Nou yet. Maybe next year. I would like to watch Barca play Real Madrid.

Your nickname is Moyna (after the bird, the mynah). Who gave it?
I was at the High Performance Centre, where most players graduate into the Bangladesh team. Once, during a camp, Naeem Islam, one of my senior Bangladesh team-mates, started calling me Moyna for no particular reason. Tamim Iqbal (Petla - paunchy) and Mushfiqur Rehman (Batul - short) have funnier nicknames than mine.

Recently you came to an Asia Cup press conference in a clown hat. What was that all about?
Someone from the crowd threw me the hat after we made the final. The press conference came immediately after the victory ride. The next match, there were so many fans with similar hats in the ground.

Do you agree the Bangladeshi fan is the most emotional in the cricketing world?
Both India and Bangladesh have highly emotional fans.

What's the one question the media should be banned from asking you?
What will happen in tomorrow's match?

What is one thing you can teach Shahrukh Khan?
Perhaps I can teach him how to spin the ball. But I am a little shy in his presence because I don't know what exactly to say.

Is it true that your fans have sent you marriage proposals in blood?
It has happened once or twice. I thought the woman must be really mad. Once, I was in a restaurant, and a lady fan sent me a love letter on a piece of tissue. I did not know who she was, as I did not see her.

Is there a match from the past where you wanted to be the player who turned the game on its head?
Either of the innings played by Gautam Gambhir or MS Dhoni for India during the 2011 World Cup final in Mumbai against Sri Lanka. The occasion was such that you couldn't express it in words. They absorbed the pressure and showed they were capable of playing such an innings. I would have loved to perform in such a situation.

What's the one thing tourists should always do in Bangladesh?
Never leave before tasting shorshey ilish, which is an amazing fish dish.

What Olympic sport would you buy a ticket to watch?
The 100 metres final. I don't have any tickets yet for the London Olympics, but if I go there I know someone will help me get in.

    The hype is justified somewhat as Shakib is the first Bangladeshi cricketer to reach the top of the ICC rankings. But I fear we are going to the common subcontinental way of idolizing a sportsman & slowly bringing in the kind of fanaticism that we are better off without. Our cricket is still at an early stage & surely we will see much more success & few more cricketers like Shakib in the future. So it would be very nice if we Bangladeshi fans can start a tradition of sensibility & enjoy this game.

  • Sharif_Islam on May 23, 2012, 2:28 GMT

    o my dear fellows, plz dont say shakib ''our shakib'' any more. he has crossed that boundary. he is playing for international cricket. we all dont like KKR! he is theirs, ok! plz accpet his internationalization. remember he is the number 1 all rounder of the world. and for last couple of year. it's not really fun, okay? who else was in that position for that long? go man. u have miles to go.

    I have feeling that Sakib will be the match winning factor against DD today because slowness of the Pune pitch suit him more than any other players.

    Sakib has two full skills--batting and bowling-- instead of two half skills like youfuf pathan and many others.

  • on May 22, 2012, 7:14 GMT

    Shakib Is A Very Good Player, Its ICC Rankings Folks ... He is At The Top Of the Table in All-Rounder List. @ Khaled_Shahed We Indians accept the fact at Present Situation, who told you we don't ? Remember As A Player of KKR when he hits a SIX or takes Up Wkts, Its Indian Fans Cheering Up For Him.

  • Breaking_Point on May 22, 2012, 7:10 GMT

    It's a good thing that Shakib understood his fault about rough comments on x-seniors during World cup! He is only 25! Also notable that yes,he doesn't work hard on bowling n yet does very well! His best times r yet to come! This is not his best as the future is very bright!

  • on May 22, 2012, 7:08 GMT

    Sakib i the heart of bangladesh.Every people like sakib,like cricket,like BANGLADESH. Many of Bangladeshi people like and play Cricket. Every man a choice in his life.Than sakib choice is football.This is good choice for sakib. GOOD LUCK SAKIB<GOOD LUCK BANGLADESH......

  • on May 22, 2012, 6:39 GMT

    legaleagle, I thinkk u dont know about cricket. he is the no. all rounder in the world. remember farther if u will do any negative comment about Sakib i did not good behavior with u. because he a great hero for us. mind it.

  • on May 22, 2012, 6:31 GMT

    Yes he is the most prmising alrounder at present. No doubt about it. Still in early days of his csreer. A lot more to come. Best of luck from india.

  • on May 22, 2012, 5:53 GMT

    a ordinary sakib is enough for all india...............

  • sweetspot on May 22, 2012, 4:31 GMT

    Thanks for this one, Nagraj! Lovely to get to know the young man a little more. Very humble too, at such a young age, regretting saying things about another player in the spur of the moment. Very earthy and real. My respect for Shakib goes up one more notch. BD fans, no need to say anything, but they're awesome. Interesting that the two innings Shakib chose to mention as special came in the same match.

  • on May 22, 2012, 4:25 GMT

    we believe that one day Bangladesh will win ICC Cricket World CUP under Shakibs captaincy and for his allrounding performance . . . maybe next CUP will be ours.... and i think ICC is more skilled to decide who is the best than any of us.... so mind your language ..

  • Meety on May 22, 2012, 4:09 GMT

    Onya Shakib, one of most favourite non-ozzy players.

  • FazleAbed on May 22, 2012, 4:02 GMT

    With no offence I like to say, Shakib shouldn't play IPL anymore. It may give him bulk of money, but he will become a good batsman if he play County cricket or Sheffield shield cricket. Bowling 24 balls and batting on avg 10-15 balls won't make anyone great cricketers. Bangladesh should stop sending players in IPL. Please play 4 day matches.

  • Khaled_Shahed on May 22, 2012, 3:55 GMT

    To all (mainly from India) who think Shakib is not word class player...accept the fact that he is the current number ONE all rounder in world cricket...I read few comments saying that in India there are plenty of spinners who can bawl better than Shakib. If this is true..then why current Indian team does not have a quality spinner? C'mon guyes..give Shakbi the credits that he deserves..He has been a great performer for last few years. He will never be like Bradman or Sachin but he will be 'Shakib'.

  • sachin_champ on May 22, 2012, 3:25 GMT

    best ever BD player ... good luck shakib

  • on May 22, 2012, 0:21 GMT

    Shakib 6 match 10 Wkt Morkel 15 match 25 Wkt shaki with 2 MOM. Could have easyly best wkt taker if he get chance to play 15 matches.. Poor kkr think tank

  • on May 22, 2012, 0:02 GMT

    Sakib Is the tremendous performer.. even he has ability to play any team of all over the world. Best of Luck Sukib...

  • on May 21, 2012, 22:28 GMT

    Great bloke. Come back to Worcester whenever you want mate. Great player.

  • Shajadul on May 21, 2012, 21:39 GMT

    He is a great cricketer who can perform during pressure. He needs to improve his role to be a good finisher as he is batting in no. 5. Nice cricketer to follow.

  • on May 21, 2012, 20:18 GMT

    Shakib play cricket and like football so he is in both sports ......

  • on May 21, 2012, 19:05 GMT

    shakib u r just simply awesome........

  • SurlyCynic on May 21, 2012, 19:01 GMT

    He's an ok batsman and his part time spin has improved a bit. But from the thousands of comments from BD fans during the IPL one would think he's the next Bradman or Tendulkar.

  • on May 21, 2012, 17:29 GMT

    Course Shakib will like Football more than Cricket after all, Football is the best Sport in the World and is one of many unlike Cricket that spreads the game Worldwide :)

  • Ibra95 on May 21, 2012, 17:23 GMT

    Shakib Al Hasan just dazzling like a sun for Bangladesh`s Cricket. keep it Shak, keep it up.

  • barshon on May 21, 2012, 16:54 GMT

    very interesting write up about Shakib Al Hasan. amazing! didn`t know that much. very well written and very well expressed. Football is in his blood because his father used to play soccer for Magora. And his Cousin Uzzal did play for the big clubs here in Bangladesh.

  • on May 21, 2012, 16:40 GMT

    Shakib can prove himself, if he got a chance to participate full IPL then he will be Man of the Series............

  • on May 21, 2012, 16:34 GMT

    shakib is a brand of our country...keep it up shakib bai..

  • B.a.p.p.Y on May 21, 2012, 16:23 GMT

    i think he is not good enough for IPL ... he should not be in playing 11 of KKR.

  • on May 21, 2012, 16:10 GMT

    Sakib is best in the world. He is great. He is very clever cricketer.Best of luck Sakib & BANGLADESH & KKR.

  • on May 21, 2012, 16:06 GMT

    @Nagraj Gollapudi, Many Many thanks from the heart of our Bangladesh as you brought up the news for which we do wait for every morning. We love him very much whether other people love him or not.

  • M_Rakibul_Islam on May 21, 2012, 15:57 GMT

    Shakib is just 25. But his interview seems like an interview of a cricketer of mid-30. His wit is one of the main thing that attract me most.

  • rakib00 on May 21, 2012, 15:50 GMT

    Shakib is really a great talent. He already proved that many times. He is far more mature for his age.

  • on May 21, 2012, 15:18 GMT

    he is the best simply because of his incredible ability to deliver under pressure.just look when he comes to bowl for bd and when all the chips are down he never fails to live up to our expectation with the bat as well.And about being emotional i don't see any issues because we are the most emotional fans in the world.....

  • on May 21, 2012, 15:18 GMT

    Hero of World Cricket.. We like our world number one hero Shakib Al Hasan

  • on May 21, 2012, 15:11 GMT

    @legaleagle: You are right, Shakib is ORDINARY, very ordinary, so ordinary that he is EXTRAORDINARY!

  • on May 21, 2012, 15:10 GMT

    Shakib is a dazzling supernova in the cricketing galaxy. No doubt he is one of the modest players both in the ground and out of the ground. Shakib, Tamim and some other Bangladeshi players have lifted Bangladeshi cricket in a different height. He has already proved his ability in IPL. Hope he will glow more to the upcoming matches by playing some good cricket. In your good days we are with you and your bad days we will be with you...just go ahead...make the people cry the way you done in Asia Cup. We all are proud of you...

  • Quddus-Mamu on May 21, 2012, 15:06 GMT

    KKR may drop Shakib again in their next match. I read an article in an Indian newspaper that Bret Lee is very upset to keep him out from squad. So, Lee might get a chance in next match instead of Shakib.

  • on May 21, 2012, 14:57 GMT

  • Legaleagle on May 21, 2012, 11:59 GMT

    His lack of interest in cricket is clearly visible with patchy performances at the international level. May be he should start playing football.

    Furthermore, most Bangladeshi fans feel Shakib is very popular. He may be popular in Bangladesh but outside of Bangladesh he is unknown. He still has a lot to do before getting real exposure at the world level.

    Shakib is ORDINARY! He has to work a lot more on his game.

    you are real brave and innocent. i bet u r intelligent as well. i must say, spirit is very important in cricket; coz u have to concentrate while batting and of course while bowling. if u comment anything that makes u thinking over; ultimately causes ruining ur spirit. u r so positive; i wish you always also be inspiring to ur team mates.

    Mature and developed cricketer. Answers to questions show an innocence and vulnerability - perhaps a tendancy to stick a foot in it as well.

    I doubt even he will be able to get tickets to the 100m final in London. This isn't Bangladesh you know.

  • on May 21, 2012, 6:14 GMT

    Previously in Bangladesh we didn't have an sports icon like him. Long our pride. In Bangladesh we call Shakib "Bangladesher Jaan" i.e. life of Bangladesh. Really he is becoming the heart of Bangladesh.

  • on May 21, 2012, 6:06 GMT

    bengali ppl love football more than cricket..... open secret :)

  • borhans on May 21, 2012, 6:06 GMT

    Love the way he don't take pressure just enjoy every moment of his cricket career .maybe that is what the difference between a player & a real good consistent all rounder .Your passion for win ,your passion to perform that make Bangladesh fans love you more .You showed the real spirit of a tiger & hope you will continue it through out your career
