CRICDOT DESK : Although not one of the best innings of his career, Tiger batsman Mushfiqur Rahim played impeccably against the Afghans. This 6-run innings has taken him to 13,000 clubs in international cricket. His runs in three formats are now 13,006. On the other hand, Liton Das needs another 35 runs to enter the four thousand club with three editions. Liton scored 136 runs against Rashid Khan.

Mushfiqur became the second player in Bangladesh’s jersey to enter 13 Hazari club in all formats. He had to play 406 matches to reach this milestone. Tamim Iqbal is at the top of the list. The Tigers ODI captain and opener has scored 14,165 runs in 359 matches. Shakib Al Hasan is in the third place. He collected 12,553 runs in 360 matches.
Tamim is the highest run scorer for Bangladesh in ODIs and T20s. However, Mushfiqur is currently on top in the Tests. Before the ODI series against the Afghans, two records were being handed over to this experienced wicketkeeper of the Bangladesh team. He set both records in the second ODI in Chittagong.

Tamim has scored the most runs in three formats. Mushfiqur, the second best, has been waiting for 13,000 international runs to be completed. Today he touched that milestone. Mushfiqur touched this milestone as the second Bangladeshi cricketer after Tamim.

Tamim, who is in the top position, scored 14,165 runs. On the other hand, Mushfiqur scored 13,006 runs in the second place. Shakib is in the third place with 12 thousand 553 runs. In addition to 1,000 runs in international cricket, Mushfiqur has set another record.

The wicketkeeper-batsman is currently the second best run-getter after Shakib in ODIs. 40 runs more than Shakib, 6 thousand 60 runs. However, Shakib has a chance to surpass Mushfiqur.

Before winning the toss in Chittagong, Bangladesh scored 306 runs in a record-breaking partnership between Mushfiqur and Liton. Liton was seen in the fifth century of his ODI career. Liton played an innings of 136 runs off 127 balls. However, Mushfiqur was deprived of a century. He was out for 6 runs.
