Meet the world's best all-rounder. No, really. Shakib is, according to the International Cricket Council's one-day ratings, better than Andrew Flintoff, Yuvraj Singh, Shoaib Akhtar and Shahid Afridi.
The left-arm spinner has two one-day hundreds to his name, not to mention an impressive Test bowling best of 7-36 against New Zealand.
Shakib was instrumental in Bangladesh's only win in the 2007 tournament, collecting 4-34 against West Indies.
The 22-year-old will need to be at the top of his game if Bangladesh are to have any hopes of advancing beyond the group stages.
