Shakib said on his verified Facebook page, “It’s an immense honor for me to be on this prestigious list of outstanding cricketers and represent my country. I would like to sincerely thank Wisden for bestowing me with this incredible honor of naming me as the 21st century’s 2nd most valuable player in ODI cricket and the 6th most valuable player in Test cricket.
