Shakib matches Yuvraj's rare WC record
The left-arm spinner from Bangladesh became only the second bowler after Yuvraj to claim a fifer and score a fifty in a World Cup game.
Yuvraj - who was the player of the series in 2011 World Cup - was the first player to claim such incredible figures during a match against Ireland. Yuvraj picked up 5 wickets in the game for 31 runs and later scored 50* off 75 balls.
Shakib first scored 51 off 69 deliveries as Bangladesh posted an imposing 262/7 in 50 overs. The leg-spinner returned with highly impressive figures of (10-1-29-5) and guided his team to an emphatic victory.
Shakib in red hot form in WC
Shakib has already touched some milestones in the ongoing showpiece event and he has been a vital cog in Bangladesh's sublime run in the tournament.
He has now passed 400 runs and taken ten wickets in the same World Cup - a feat never before achieved by an all-rounder at this tournament.
But personal achievements are not the priority for the 32-year-old, who has passed 50 every time he has batted this summer, except for against Australia when he made a run-a-ball 41.
"I don't rank my performance at all, but it is very satisfying when I'm contributing with both ball and bat rather than just in one sector," he said. "It was needed and important from my perspective and the team.
Shakib matched Jayasuriya's WC record
Earlier, he equalled legendary Sri Lanka all-rounder Sanath Jayasuriya's record of picking up 25-plus wickets and scoring 1,000-plus runs in the World Cup.
Shakib eyeing win against India
Shakib is now hoping his team play with same intensity against India to bolster their chances of making it to the semi-finals.
"Experience will help, we have to play our best cricket to be able to beat India. They have got world-class players who can take the match in their own hands. We have to be at our best but I believe we are a capable enough team."
Bangladesh's final two games in this tournament are against India and Pakistan, and both must be won if they are to catch England and secure a place in the knockout stages.
