Shadab Bashir Jakati (born 27 November 1980 in Vasco da Gama, Goa) is an Indian first class cricketer. He was coached by Nitin Vernekar. He is a left-handed batsman and a slow left arm orthodox bowler. He represents Goa in first class cricket and Gujarat Lions in the Indian Premier League. In 2008, Shadab Jakati used the IPL to get out of cricketing obscurity. A left-arm orthodox spinner, Jakati got appreciable turn from the South African pitches and was crucial to Chennai Super Kings' surge in the middle stages of the 2009 tournament. He claimed four-fors in back-to-back games, a remarkable achievement in twenty overs, to announce himself. He took 13 wickets the following year.
In 2014, he was purchased by the Royal Challengers Bangalore, but only played one game in the season; against his former team. He played for the Gujarat Lions in the 2017 season before entering politics.
