On 20 October 2008, Shakib took at the time the best bowling figures by a Bangladeshi player in Tests, 7 wickets for 36 runs, against New Zealand in the first Test of the Test series.
Shakib was named in the Bangladeshi senior squad to tour Zimbabwe in February 2006. Along with Farhad Reza and Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib was one of three no cap players to be included in the squad. Shakib and Reza were described as “very good cricketers in all departments of the game”, with Faruq Ahmed, the chief selector, saying Bangladesh had “high hopes for them and it is time for them to perform at international level”. .

He also scored 30 not out, while Shahriar Nafees scored his first ODI century to help Bangladesh win by eight wickets.
Captaincy and vice-captaincy (2009–2011)
In early 2009, there was speculation about Mohammad Ashraful and his position as captain after a succession of defeats for Bangladesh and Ashraful’s continued poor form. Shakib was considered a possible successor by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB). However, the BCB was wary of overloading the versatile player and decided against doing so. Other candidates were dropped and Ashraful remained as captain. Later in 2009, Ashraful’s captaincy again came under scrutiny after Bangladesh crashed out of the 2009 ICC World Twenty20 in the first round following losses to Ireland and India. When Mashrafe Mortaza replaced Mohammad Ashraful in June 2009, Shakib was appointed vice-captain, filling the position vacated by Mortaza.
2011 World Cup
From February to March April 2011, Bangladesh co-hosted the World Cup with India and Sri Lanka. West Indies dismissed Bangladesh for 58 runs, the team’s lowest score in ODIs and a record low for a full member in the World Cup. Shakib described this match as the “worst day” of his career. Shakib’s home was stoned by angry fans afterwards, as was the West Indies team bus as it took off.

Bangladesh lost the series 3-0, Shakib scoring 69 runs in three matches and taking just one wicket while conceding 117 runs. Shane Watson’s performances in the series meant that he ranked first among ODI all-rounders, claiming Shakib’s spot.
When Bangladesh toured Zimbabwe in August 2011, they were expected to win the one-off test, which was Zimbabwe’s first for five years, and the five-match ODI series. As it became known, Bangladesh lost the ODI series 3-2 and the Test. Shakib and his vice-captain, Tamim Iqbal, were fired with a BCB official citing unsatisfactory leadership.
New era of Test & T20I captaincy (2017–2019)
Following the retirement of Mashrafe Mortaza’s T20I in 2017, Shakib was named captain of the T20I team for the second time. Later, Mushfiqur Rahim was also removed from the test captaincy and Hasan was again appointed test captain. However, during the 2017-18 Bangladesh Tri-Nation Series, he injured his finger and rested for a few days.

He also scored a half century in the first innings. In the second innings he only scored 8 runs with the bat, but grabbed another 5 wickets to secure his first 10 wicket haul and victory. However, after the series, Al Hasan opted to take a break from Test to focus on limited overs games.
After serving a year’s ban, he returned to the national team for their Test and ODI series against the West Indies. In the first ODI, he collected his 150th home wicket. Shakib also set another record as the left-arm spinner became the first Bangladeshi cricketer to bowl 100 home innings. In the third ODI, he became the only cricketer to record double 6,000 runs and 300 wickets in all formats in a single country. Bangladesh won the three match series 3–0 and became the player of the series scoring 113 runs and taking 6 wickets at an average of 8.33.
In the third ODI, Shakib suffered a groin injury. However, he recovered from the injury and was thus selected in the Test series squad. But in the first test he suffered an injury in another region of the same thigh that forced him to leave the field late in the second day. Although it appeared that Shakib’s old groin injury had resurfaced, match officials reported it to be a new injury. He scored 68 runs and bowled 6 overs giving up 16 runs in the first innings as he failed to bat or bowl in the second innings of the first test. He was ruled out of the second test.
