Shakib-Al-Hasan in The List of 'Unique' 8 Cricketers in The World

In sports, there are different opinions about statistics. Some say the statistics are just hoaxes. Because statistics do not paint the whole picture. Again, according to many, the role of statistics in any analysis is immense. Especially in cricket, we have to resort to statistics again and again to interpret the details.

Shakib Al Hasan, the world's best all-rounder of the Bangladesh team, has been added to a new list on the page of those statistics. Where there are only 8 cricketers in total. Shakib became the 8th cricketer on the list by taking 5 wickets in the first ODI of the current tour against Zimbabwe.

5269 cricketers have played international cricket in the history of almost one and a half years. But in the combination of runs and wickets, there are 8 unique players in international cricket, who are different from the remaining 5261. These 8 cricketers are unique because no cricketer can be found ahead of them in both runs and wickets.

For example, Shakib Al Hasan's current collection in international cricket is 11974 runs and 581 wickets. 61 people have more runs than Shakib in international cricket. Again, 24 bowlers have more wickets than Shakib. But those who have more runs than Shakib have fewer wickets than Shakib. Again, for those whose wickets are more than Shakib, their runs are less than Shakib.

In other words, there is no cricketer in the world who has surpassed Shakib in run-wicket combination. There are only 8 unique cricketers in the world by this standard. They are Sachin Tendulkar, Jacques Kallis, Kapil Dev, Shaun Pollock, Wasim Akram, Shane Warne, and Muttiah Muralitharan. Each of them is ahead of any other cricketer in the world in a run-wicket combination.

Shakib took 5 wickets in the first ODI of the series on Friday to increase his wicket tally to 581 in international cricket. As a result, he has surpassed Jacques Kallis (577) in the number of wickets and has got a place in the list of unique cricketers. He has not been on the list for so long as he has fewer wickets than Kallis.

Now Shakib has a chance to remove Kapil Dev from the list. In the meantime, Shakib has scored more runs than Kapil Dev. And if he can take 107 wickets, then it will be more wickets than Kapil. As a result, Kapil Deb will lose his novelty as he lags behind Shakib in the run-wicket combination. Then the list will be 7 cricketers.
