Saifudin challenges Shakib to score 22 off his two overs

Bangladesh all-rounder Mohammad Saifuddin challenged premier all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan to take the pacer on and score at least 22 runs off his two overs once Shakib returns to cricket following his ban.

Saifuddin announced through a Facebook post yesterday that Shakib has already accepted the challenge of the young all-rounder. 

“Today I threw a challenge towards Shakib bhai. I will bowl two overs and Shakib bhai needs to at least score 22 runs. Interestingly, Shakib bhai has already accepted my challenge.”

“Even though Shakib bhai has more followers than me, I am still seeking prayers for me. I will celebrate the return of Shakib bhai in a few days after cricket returns following the coronavirus halt,” Saifuddin added.

Shakib, who is currently serving a ban imposed by the ICC for failing to report corrupt approaches from a bookie, is expected to make a return to cricket next October.
