Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has told Shakib Al Hasan, star cricketer and the Awami League-nominated candidate for Magura-1, to “hit a six” in the 12th national election on January 7. 

“You do not need to give a speech. You can hit a six, and you can take wickets with the ball. Just hit a six again in the election,” the prime minister said to the ace allrounder, calling him a gem.

Sheikh Hasina, chief of the ruling Awami League, was addressing an election rally at the Govt Rajendra College ground in Faridpur on Tuesday.  

Shakib Al Hasan is contesting the election from Magura-1 with the Awami League’s Boat symbol as a first-time MP hopeful.
