Early & Domestic

Shakib, born in Magura, Khulna, began playing cricket when he was young. Shakib “was fairly excellent at cricket and was frequently contracted to play for other villages and teams,” claims Prothom Alo sports journalist Utpal Shuvro.

He was chosen to represent Islampur and, after previously using a taped tennis ball, took a wicket with his first delivery using a proper cricket ball. He trained for six months at Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Protishtan, a government-run athletic facility.

In 2003’s ACC Under-17 Cup, Shakib made his Under-17 debut against the UAE Under-17s, recording a bowling performance of 3-18 in 8 overs (with two maiden overs).

In May 2004, when Shakib was 17, he played his first first-class game for Khulna. In the first innings, he bowled 0/116 in 30 overs, and in the second innings, he bowled 3/92 in 28 overs.

In the first inning, he got 13 out of 11 with three 4s; in the second inning, he got 16 out of 43. Rakibul Hasan was his first victim in a first-class game.

Shakib first played for Bangladesh at the Under-19 level in November 2005 against India Under-19 in the 2005 Afro-Asia Under-19 Cup.

In his first game, he got 24 runs off of 23 balls, four of which were 4s. He also got 2/26 in 10 overs with two no-balls, and his first wicket was Tanmay Srivastava.

Shakib made his first-class debut on January 1, 2005, in a game between the Bangladesh Cricket Board President’s XI and the Zimbabweans. He got 14 out of 14 in the first innings and 15 out of 66 in the second innings.

He also got 0/133 in 32 overs when he bowled. In February 2005, while playing against Zimbabwe A, Shakib got his first first-class international wicket by getting rid of Vusimuzi Sibanda and a five-wicket haul.
