The entire Bangladesh was looking at Shakib’s bat in the Bangladesh vs Pakistan match of the World Cup. But it’s not just about big scores in the face of batting woes. In that day’s match, Shakib played a very simple bat. There was no sponsor sticker. In that match Shakib did not have a sticker on his bat and there was a lot of discussion.
However, the reason why Shakib Al Hasan does not have a sticker on his bat is finally known. Tiger skipper’s contract with Indian company SG has ended. Because of which Shakib’s bat did not have that company’s sticker. However, even though Shakib was asked to sign a new contract for 3 years, the Tiger captain did not agree to it.
Of course, Shakib is not sponsorless. Rather, this Bangladeshi cricketer got a bigger sponsor this time. Shakib will be seen with a new sticker bat in the next match against Sri Lanka. It is known that Shakib has signed an agreement with the German company Puma.
In the world of cricket, the use of puma bats among Australian cricketers was a sight to behold. Mark Taylor, Michael Bevan, Adam Gilchrist played with Puma company bats. Yuvraj Singh, who won the World Cup for India, also played with Puma’s bat.
