Kolkata: No one can fault his effort as far as his bowling in this IPL is concerned, but star all-rounder Shakib Al-Hasan feels that it's about time that he starts contributing with the willow.
He has taken six wickets at an average of less than 11 run per wicket but according to Shakib that's only half the job done.
"From the three matches I played, I was man-of-the-match once. I've done well as a bowler. I'm now focussing on my batting. By the God's grace, I hope to do well as a batsman," the unassuming Bangladeshi all-rounder, said here on Wednesday.
