Bangladesh ace-allrounder Shakib al Hasan has been nominated for the ICC Player of the Month for October owing to his contribution in the T20 World Cup.

Shakib was vital for Bangladesh in the First Round, he played six matches to score 131 runs at 21.83. The left-armer grabbed 11 wickets at just 11.18, with an economy of a miserly 5.59. 

However, he was ruled out of the tournament due to a hamstring injury that he suffered during the match between West Indies.

Earlier, Shakib had been voted the ICC Men’s Player of the Month for July.

Besides Shakib, Pakistan's Mitchell Marsh and Namibia's David Wiese were also nominated for the Player of the Month award.

Pakistan Asif Ali's smashed 27* from 12 balls in a win over New Zealand followed up by an extraordinary performance against Afghanistan, hitting four sixes in the 19th over to seal an important third victory at the tournament.

Namibian all-rounder David Wiese also made it to this month's nominees, because of his all-around performance in the T20 World Cup's Super 12 stage.

Wiese scored 162 runs at an average of 27, with a strike rate of 132.78, and with the ball, Wiese has taken seven wickets at an economy of 7.23.
