Mushfiq reaches 11,000 runs in int’l cricket

SPORTS REPORTER, DHAKA

Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim reached a milestone of 11,000 runs across the formats of international cricket yesterday during the crucial World Cup encounter against Afghanistan at Southampton.

Rahim became the third highest scorer for Bangladesh after Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan to enter the elite 11,000-run club. Tamim topped the list with 12,781, while Shakib followed him with 11471.

The keeper-batsman touched the landmark when he tucked a short of length delivery of Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman behind the square. He had 10,946 runs under his belt before the match.

He clouted a blistering 81 when it was much-needed for Bangladesh to post a moderate total in the run-fest flagship event.

Of them, the right-handed batsman scored 4009 runs from 66 Tests, 5883 runs from 211 ODIs coupled with 1138 runs off 77 Twenty20 Internationals since his strides in international cricket in 2005. Coincidently, both Shakib and Mushfiqur achieved the feat in the ongoing extravaganza event.

The 32-year-old diminutive batsman smashed 83, the cornerstone of the Bangladesh’s 262. It was his second fifty-plus scores along with a jaw-dropping century in six-match road string.  He struck 79 against South Africa and spellbinding 102 not out against Australia before smoking 83 in his fourth World Cup.
