Shakib Al Hasan, one of international cricket's most successful players, has established himself as one of the finest all-rounders in modern cricket. Known for breaking records, Shakib has made the term "record" synonymous with his name.

Throughout his T20I career, Shakib has taken a total of 145 wickets. He also holds the record for the most four-wicket hauls in T20s, having achieved this feat 16 times, with Afghan leg-spinner Rashid Khan trailing behind him.

In the T20 World Cup alone, Shakib has claimed 47 wickets. This not only makes him the highest wicket-taker for Bangladesh but also the leading wicket-taker in the history of the T20 World Cup.

From the beginning of his career, Shakib's consistent and balanced performance with both bat and ball has been noteworthy. Now, at the age of 37, he stands on the verge of becoming the first player in T20 World Cup history to take 50 wickets, needing just three more to achieve this unprecedented milestone.

Shakib has already traveled to the United States with the team to participate in the upcoming T20 World Cup. With the other top five wicket-takers having retired, Shakib is poised to be the first bowler to reach this fifty-wicket mark. Among active players in the World Cup, Sri Lankan Wanindu Hasaranga is next in line with 31 wickets.

Furthermore, Shakib is on the cusp of another record in the West Indies and USA-hosted T20 World Cup. Since 2007, Shakib has played in every T20 World Cup. The only other player to have done so is India's Rohit Sharma. Although both have participated in the same number of World Cups, Rohit has played more matches, totaling 39 compared to Shakib's 36. Following them, Australian batter David Warner has played 34 matches, ranking third on this list.
