The Asia Cup 2022 is all set to begin in a few days as six heavyweight Asian giants get ready to compete against each other. The tournament will have many star players giving their all on the field to come on top against their opponents. Among the many star performers, only one will be able to have his hands on the coveted ‘Player of the tournament award’. On that note, let’s take a look at five strong contenders for ‘Player of the Tournament’ award in the upcoming Asia cup:
1) Shakib Al Hasan
Shakib al Hasan has been a star player in the Bangladesh squad for a long time. The all-rounder never fails to give his valuable contribution to the team with both bat and ball. The big stages often bring out the best in Shakib as he was seen in his beast mode during the 2019 ODI world cup. The 35-year-old scored 606 runs and picked up 11 wickets becoming the first player in world cup history to score 400+ runs and pick up 10 wickets.
Shakib has been going through a dip in his form off late and Asia Cup will be the perfect stage for him to bring his A-game to the fore.
