Shakib played in nine editions of IPL for two teams from 2011 to 2020. However, he could not participate in the tournament in 2013 and 2020 due to ICC embargo.

In nine IPL editions, Shakib played 71 matches. But he got chance of batting in 52 innings. He secured 793 runs at an average of 19.83. His best innings is 66 runs. He also hit 73 boundaries and 21 over-boundaries. Shakib smashed only two fifties while he hit duck four times.
