Elite club record alert for Mushfiqur Rahim
CRICDOT DESK : On the first day of the new year, Bangladesh faced host New Zealand at Mount Manganui. Bangladesh will play a two-match Test series against the Kiwis. Mushfiqur Rahim, one of the stars of the national team, can reach a unique milestone in this series.
The former Bangladesh captain will be the first batsman to enter the 5,000-run club in Test cricket.
And for this I want 144 runs. Hopefully, the first test will reach that milestone. Dependable.
Because his performance on New Zealand soil is quite good. He played 4 Tests and scored 222 runs in 6 innings. Mushfiqur scored 425 runs in 6 Tests against the team, including a century and two half-centuries.
Mushfiqur could be the record in the first innings. Mushfiqur scored 159 runs in the Wellington Test in 2016.
Mushfiqur scored 4656 runs in 6 Tests before going to Bay Oval with the bat. Where there are seven centuries and 24 half-centuries.
The first Test starts at 4 am on Thursday. New Zealand collected 256 runs for 5 wickets on the first day with the help of Devon Conway’s century.
Fast bowler Shariful got two wickets, one Ebadat. Another runout.
