Despite Bangladesh’s heavy defeat in the second and final Test match against the West Indies, Tigers captain Shakib al Hasan stood out from the others with a record performance. The visiting side lost the second Test in Kingston by 166 runs Saturday to concede a 2-0 series defeat.

Shakib however, was able to leave his mark, taking six wickets for 33 runs in the Windies’ second innings. This is Shakib’s first five-wicket haul against the Caribbean side since 2009. This is also the all-rounder’s best figure against the Windies.

Shakib reached the milestone Saturday during day three’s play when he removed tail-ender Miguel Cummins. In the process, Shakib recorded his 18th five-wicket haul in Tests.

The left-arm spinner first dismissed opener Kraigg Brathwaite Friday evening before picking up another five wickets a day later. He removed fellow opener Devon Smith, lower-order batsman Keemo Paul, No 3 batsman Kieran Powell, Cummins and No 11 batter Shannon Gabriel to finish with figure of 17-5-33-6.

Since his Test debut in 2007, Shakib has registered the most five-fors against the Windies and Zimbabwe (thrice each). The Tigers’ T20I captain recorded the feat twice each against Sri Lanka, England, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa and once each against Pakistan and India. Shakib’s career-best figure of 6/36 came against the Kiwis in 2008 in Chittagong.
