Shakib named in Australian portal
best Test, T20  XI of  2017
Shakib Al Hasan - Mushfiqur Rahim

Bangladesh Test and T20 captain Shakib Al Hasan has been named in the Cricket.com.au’s best Test and  T20 team for the year of 2017. Bangladesh’s former Test captain Mushfiqur Rahim has also been included in the Test XI.

Shakib is the only Bangladeshi player to make the room in the elite eleven as the best all-rounder of the year in T20 format and he has been chosen as No 7 player as per batting order.

He played 29 matches during the year for Bangladesh national team, Dhaka Dynamites (BPL), Jamaica Tallawahs (CPL), Kolkata Knight Riders (IPL) and Peshwar Zalmi (PSL).

He scored 447 runs and took 37 wickets with his best bowling figure is five for 16 which he got for Dhaka in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).

Shakib was one of the finest allrounders in the Test game has produced took a sabbatical from the longest format late in the year but nonetheless made his mark in seven Tests in 2017 to claim the No.6 berth in au.com side. Shakib was instrumental in Bangladesh's historic victory over Australia in August, claiming 10 wickets for the match and posting 84. It followed on from his 217 against New Zealand in January, the highest total ever made by a Bangladeshi in Test history while he also struck a century in his side's win over Sri Lanka in March. In a bumper year for spin bowlers, Shakib is a more than handy fifth bowler in this side.

It was a big year for Bangladesh and their recently-ousted captain Mushfiqur Rahim is a deserved inclusion for the keeping position. While Quinton de Kock led all comers on the dismissals front (50 in 12 matches), Mushfiqur's return of 766 runs at 55 was comfortably the best effort by a wicketkeeper in run-scoring terms in 2017 (Sri Lanka Niroshan Dickwella aside, who managed seven more runs albeit at a reduced average of 39). The diminutive Mushfiqur scored tons in his first two Tests of the year and led his country to memorable wins over Sri Lanka and Australia.

The following players have been named in the best Test XI of 2017:

Test XI: Dean Elgar (South Africa), David Warner (Australia), Chesteshwar Pujara (India), Steve Smith (Australia), Virat Kohli (India), Shakib Al Hasan (Bangladesh), Mushfiqur Rahim, Ravindra Jadeja (India), Kagiso Rabada (South Africa), Nathan Lyon (Australia) and Jimmy Anderson (England).

The following players have been named in T20 XI:

T20 XI: Brendon McCullum (New Zealand), Chris Gayle (West Indies), Evin Lewis (West Indies), Hashim Amla (South Africa), AB de Villiers (South Africa), Luke Ronchi (New Zealand), Shakib Al Hasan (Bangladesh), Sunil Narine (West Indies), Mohammed Amir (Pakistan), Wahab Riaz (Pakistan) and Rashid Khan (Afghanistan).
