Shakib to attend MCC meeting at Lord’s

Ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan will leave Bangladesh on January 7 to attend the first meeting of the MCC World Cricket Committee at Lord’. Shakib Al Hasan, the first Bangladeshi to join the MCC's World Cricket Committee was one of the four new faces to the 14-member committee alongside New Zealand women's captain Suzie Bates, former West Indies fast-bowler Ian Bishop and former Sri Lanka off-spinner and current ICC Elite Panel umpire Kumar Dharmasena. Shakib and Bates in fact are the only two who are  the current cricketers.

Mike Gatting replaced Mike Brearly as the head of the committee when it was formed newly in last October. The committee was also bolstered by the high profile names like Sourav Ganguly, Brendan McCullum, Kumar Sangakkara, Ricky Ponting, Rod Marsh, Tim May, Ramiz Raza, John Stevenson, Fon Der Bile.

The MCC has been playing a leading role in changing and including rules to the cricket game. However as the first Bangladeshi cricketer to the committee, it’s a chance for Shakib to represent Bangladesh cricket to the world stage.

The Test and T20 captain of Bangladesh is yet to go through the discussion materials which will be raised in the two-day meeting on January 9-10. But what he so far knows that the discussion will be revolving around five-day Test, four-day Test and day-night Test.

As a member of the committee Shakib however will give his opinion and speech about the way he wants to see the cricket.
