Shakib Al Hasan is arguably the greatest cricketer which the proud nation of Bangladesh has ever produced. Bangladesh despite being a relatively new country playing the game of cricket has produced some outstanding cricketers and Shakib is the crown jewel of them all. One of the finest all-rounders in the game currently, Shakib turns 30 today and should now be entering the prime years of his playing career.
Being an outstanding all-rounder on the cricket field, Shakib is also an all-rounder off it. A relatively unknown fact about the Bangladeshi all-rounder is that he is also a very successful entrepreneur back in his home country of Bangladesh.
Shakib runs a very successful lounge named ‘Shakib’s Dine’. The lounge claims to be one of Bangladesh’s first sports-themed lounge. The lounge hosts various memorabilia from Shakib’s career in cricket, including his various jersey’s from his playing career with Bangladesh and Kolkata Knight Riders. The lounge also has various stumps and balls which he has collected in his cricketing career.
He has also hosted many of his famous contemporaries from cricket in his lounge. His KKR teammate Morne Morkel and the world’s premier fast bowler Dale Steyn are one of the few people who have visited and praised the lounge.
Shakib Al Hasan with his entrepreneurship skills has truly shown that he is an all-rounder on and off the field!
