Du Plessis took his twitter handle to felicitate Shakib

Former South Africa captain and one of the most experienced players in the current world, Faf Du Plessis congratulated Bangladesh’s ace all-rounder Shakib al Hasan for winning the T20I series against Australia and becoming man of the series.

Bangladesh beat Australia 4-1 in the five-match home series earlier this month where Shakib picked up seven wickets at an average of 18.14 and scored 114 runs, highest for Bangladesh in the low-scoring series to beat mighty Aussies for the first time.

Du Plessis took his twitter handle to felicitate Shakib.

“Hey @Sah75official, Congrats on beating Oz and being named the Man of the series! Always a great Moment! Hope you are not angry anymore ;)’ posted the South African on Thursday evening. 

Du Plessis was perhaps indicating the rage Shakib showed during the Dhaka Premier League recently.

Shakib also thanked him for the tweet. 

“Thanks Faf, I’m pretty chilled now, both on and off the field. And, yes you are right. It (the series win) was indeed a massive moment”, said Shakib.
