Shakib is in the list of 5 most expensive cricketers in IPL


Former Indian cricketer and analyst Akash Chopra has given a list of the cricketers who will get the highest price in this year’s IPL. He has put Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan in the list of five. The IPL auction will be held on February 18 in Chennai. Akash Chopra’s idea is that Australian left-arm fast bowler Michelle Starc will get the highest price this time.

Starc made his IPL debut for Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2014. Like the national team, he is seen to be on fire in this tournament as well. Akash Chopra puts Glenn Maxwell at number two. Although Aussie all-rounder has not been able to show his best in the IPL, he has always been an essential name in the national team. David Malan of England is Akash’s third choice.

Akash then said Shakib’s name. Shakib was not in the last IPL. He did not get a regular chance in the previous year’s Sunrisers Hyderabad XI. He had to sit with his arms and legs folded in most of the matches.

But the left-arm all-rounder kept himself busy off the field. Old coach Mohammad Salauddin flew from Dhaka to India to prepare for the World Cup. Later in the World Cup. Shakib has been playing in IPL since 2011. Only in 2013 the tournament was not played because of the series of Bangladesh team. He played his first six seasons in the IPL for Kolkata Knight Riders.

He played for Hyderabad in 2018 and 2019. Shakib, who has scored 747 runs and taken 59 wickets in 63 matches in the IPL, is not only important as a player, but his presence also plays an important role in increasing the commercial importance of the franchise. The presence of Shakib, the biggest advertisement of Bangladesh in the IPL, means that millions of viewers from the Bay of Bengal are watching the IPL with keen eyes.
