Shakib Al Hasan is only the fourth left-arm spinner to have taken 200 or more wickets in ODIs. He is also the second fastest to the mark in his category of bowlers. He would remember his 200th scalp, for it was the South African run machine Hashim Amla whom he dismissed for 15 in the final match of the recently concluded one day series. An average of 28,35, a strike rate of 39.5 and  an economy rate of 4.30 in 156 matches speak volumes about the performances of the talented cricketer. The following is the list of the left-arm spinners with the most number of wickets in the format:
