Shakib missed out on holding the outright record by three matches, with India's Dhoni leading the chart with only one LBW in 85 T20Is

All-rounder Shakib al Hasan got dismissed to an LBW for the first time in his T20 international career. 

Star Bangladesh cricketer Shakib has played 83 innings in the format since his debut in November 2006, but it was only Monday that the left-handed batsman perished to a leg-before wicket.

Batting on 11 off 20 balls against Australia in the fifth and final T20I of the series at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Shakib got pinned for a leg-before wicket to a full length delivery travelling to the middle stump off leg-spinner Adam Zampa.

Shakib closed his bat face pretty early to try and clip that to the leg side only to find the ball zip through to strike his front pad.

The Australians appealed for a leg before and the finger went up after a brief thought to call the Bangladesh batsman out.

The list was compiled before the fifth T20I between Bangladesh and Australia

Shakib’s LBW dismissal was only the fourth time he has been LBW in all T20s, in 308 innings.

Shakib missed out on holding the outright record by three matches, with India's MS Dhoni leading the chart with only one LBW in 85 T20Is.

Bangladesh in the game opted to bat first after winning the toss and posted 122 runs losing eight wickets after 20 overs.

The surface in Mirpur was the same as it has been throughout the series, low and slow.

Left-handed opener Mohammad Naim scored the most in Bangladesh's innings –22 off 23 deliveries.
