Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has had a tough time after having a brilliant World Cup in England and Wales last year. A few months after the world cup, Shakib faced charges for not reporting approaches from the bookies. This led to him been banned from all forms of cricket for one year.
Shakib and his family though have some good news to celebrate. On Friday (April 24), Umme Ahmed Shishir, Shakib’s wife, gave birth to their second child. Shakib’s mother Shirin Reza has confirmed that the 33-year-old’s daughter was born at around 4:00 pm.
According to the report by Dhaka Tribune, both the child and the mother are in good health at the moment. Last month, Shakib had flown to the USA to spend time with his wife. However, after arriving in the USA, he had to stay in quarantine for 14-days. After staying at a hotel and keeping himself in isolation, Shakib joined his family earlier this month.
The 33-year-old cricketer has also stepped up to help the needy people during the coronavirus pandemic. Shakib has even sold one of his favourite bats, with which he scored a ton during the ICC 2019 World Cup in England, for an amount of 20 lakh Taka in an online auction arranged by a page named ‘Auction 4 Action’ on social media.
