Meanwhile, Shakib, who will be playing his 50th Test, recalled his career and said, “I don’t have much regret in my life. I am very much happy with what has happened with me. I would feel much better if I could play more matches,” he said. “Those matches I have played and had a good performance, all are important to me.”

Commenting on the opposition, Shakib believes that despite having the ability to adapt, Australia will find the conditions tough. “They are one side who they have a culture to adapt in every condition in a quick span of time.

We have to do well in every aspect if we want to win a Test match. We have to bat and bowl well. Whichever team they may send, they are a difficult opponent in every condition. They can cope with the conditions around the world very fast and no other team can do better than them.”
