Shakib was appointed captain for Bangladesh’s tour of Zimbabwe in August 2009 as Mortaza was still injured.[50] In the second ODI of the five match series in Zimbabwe in August 2009, Shakib scored 104 off only 64 balls before being run-out – his third ODI century – to help his team to their highest score in ODIs and lead Bangladesh to a 2–0 lead in the series. He finished the series with 170 runs from 5 matches at an average of 42.50 – fifth highest run-scorer and 6 wickets an average of 39.66, fourth highest wicket-taker in the series. Following his team’s 4–1 victory in the ODI series against Zimbabwe, Shakib travelled to Australia to undergo medical treatment for acute groin pain. He had been experiencing pain since the end of the West Indies tour, but had decided to play through the pain and lead Bangladesh in Zimbabwe. Although he did not win, Shakib was nominated for the Cricket of the Year and Test Player of the Year in the 2009 ICC Awards; he was the only Bangladesh player to be nominated in either category that year.

Shakib’s success meant that it was not a given that Mortaza would replace him as captain once fit, and it was announced in September 2009 that Mortaza was return as captain for Bangladesh’s home ODI series against Zimbabwe the following month and Shakib would return to the role of vice-captain. However, Mortaza failed to return from arthroscopic surgery on both knees in time for the series, and Shakib was again named captain. After losing the opening match – in which Shakib criticised the performance of Bangladesh’s batsmen including himself Bangladesh went on to win the series 4–1. In the second match of the series, Shakib passed 2,000 runs in ODIs. In November 2009, Shakib was named The Wisden Cricketer’s “Test Player of the Year”
