Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan is only 23 years old but he's already on his second World Cup and is learning to shoulder the responsibilities that come with captaincy.
Expectations at home have risen in recent years and the team came in for harsh criticism after a humiliating World Cup defeat to the West Indies, when Shakib's team could only muster 58.
Shakib hit back at criticism from former players, saying they should look at their own modest records, and the tactic of shielding his players appears to have been deliberate.
"You know, all is coming upon me, so the team is spared, safe," he told reporters on Thursday before a crucial match against England in Chittagong.
