Bangladesh ace all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been named in the Wisden world’s best ODI eleven. A panel of Wisden writers has picked the XI based on both recent form and overall record.

Shakib was placed in number six position in the XI with the openers Rohit Sharma and England’s Jonny Bairstow. Virat Kohli on number three while Pakistan’s skipper Babar Azam on 4th and KL Rahul before Shakib.

Apart from Shakib, Chris Woakes is also in the team as an all-rounder with Jasprit Bumrah, Australia’s Mitchell Starc, Kiwi pacer Trent Boult and Adam Zampa in the bowling line-up.
