Early years of Shakib Al Hasan-

Shakib, a native of Magura, Khulna, has been playing cricket since he was a kid. Utpal Shuvro, the sports editor of Prothom Alo, claims that Shakib “was quite adept at cricket and was regularly contracted to play for other towns and teams.”

After one of those games, an umpire was so taken with Shakib that he got him some practice time with the Islampur Para Club, a team in the Magura Cricket League.

As usual, Shakib batted fiercely and bowled quickly during practice, but he also tried his hand at spin bowling, which did not go so well.

Even though he had previously played cricket using a taped tennis ball, he was selected to play for Islampur and promptly took a wicket with his very first delivery.

He put in six months of work at Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Protishtan, a state-sponsored sports facility.
