‘I am the luckiest person on earth’

Shakib Al Hasan was ecstatic and overwhelmed after he was treated with delicious food for him and his family which was cooked by none other than Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina all by herself.

The former number one all-rounder also posted pictures of his daughter and wife spending time with Prime Minister on Saturday.

The gesture showed by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina made Shakib so emotional that he couldn’t resist the urge to share the event with the fans.

“I am the luckiest person on earth, I am truly speechless by this gesture of our honourable prime minister Sheikh Hasina as I got to taste her delicious cooking which she cooked herself this morning and sent to my house for my wife because she mentioned it was her favourite food when we visited her yesterday. Can’t thank enough for this amazing gesture this will always remain in my heart for the rest of my life! We are truly blessed,” Shakib wrote on his Facebook page on Sunday.

Shakib’s wife Umme Ahmed Shishir expressed his elation as the Prime Minister managed to cook for them despite her hectic schedule.

“Couldn’t be more blessed, what more ways to satisfy my cravings when our honourable prime minister Sheikh Hasina took out the time from her busy schedule to cook for me herself. When she asked me what my favourite food was when we visited her yesterday, she said she will cook it with her own hands and send it to me! I am truly over the moon right now, best lunch ever in my life. I can’t thank our honourable prime minister Sheikh Hasina enough for this lovely gesture with so much love and care,” she wrote on her Facebook.

Shakib has been currently serving a two-year ban, with one year of that suspended due to his failure to report the corrupt approaches.

After being suspended he kept himself away from cricketing activities but recently revealed that he missed cricket badly.
