Shakib’s IPL performance is inspiring for Bangladesh in the T20 World Cup

Sports Express: Shakib Al Hasan’s performance against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the eliminator match was crucial for KKR to keep hopes alive in the IPL. Shakib’s performance is also a relief for Bangladesh.

Kolkata will face Delhi in the second qualifier tomorrow. Regarding the match, Shakib said, “We will do what we have been doing for so long. We have had a knockout attitude since coming to Abu Dhabi or the UAE and we are tackling that challenge one by one. The good thing for our team now is that no team will take us lightly. ‘
