Tamim awaits fourth Tiger to join 200 ODI match club
Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal

Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal stands on the brink of playing a record of 200th one-day internationals as the fourth Bangladesh player after Mashrafe Bin Mortaza, Mushfiqur Rahim and Shakib Al Hasan. Tamim is just a match shy of the milestone. He played so far 199 ODI matches after being stepped into one-day international cricket arc in 2007.

As he is in the first choice of Tigers playing XI, he will then be the fourth Bangladesh player to slam the feat if he could play the next World Cup match against India at Edgbaston, Birmingham on July 2. Bangladesh ODI captain Mashrafe among the above cricketers played the highest number of 213 ODIs though his one-day career was started in 2001 but his career was reportedly hampered by his injury niggles.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim closely followed Mashrafe with 211 matches after being incepted his ODI career in 2006. Country’s premier all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan placed third with 204 matches. Shakib made the feat during the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup in England and Wales. If Tamim could achieve the feat in the next match then he and Shakib will be completed the feat in this year World Cup.

It’s a coincidence that the quartet will accomplish the feat in the same calendar year (2019). All-rounder Mahmudullah Riyad is in the line with 181 matches. But Mohammad Ashraful had opportunity to earn the feat before them all. But he was away from the international cricket for a five-year-long hiatus because of his spot and match fixing scam.

Tamim played so far 197 innings for Bangladesh where he scored 6,841 runs with an average of 36.19. Shakib is behind him with 6,193 runs and Mushfiqur racked up 5,885 runs.

But Tamim struck the highest 11 centuries coupled with 47 half-centuries. He kept a record of hitting highest number of sixes under his belt. He clouted 82 maximum so far. On the other hand, Shakib hammered nine tons along with 45 half-centuries. But his number of sixes is less than Tamim and Mushfiq. Shakib blasted 42 sixes in his ODIs career.

And Mushfiqur whipped seven tons alongside 35 fifties. He cracked the second highest 81 sixes, a less than stroke-maker Tamim Iqbal.

Tamim kept the highest individual innings under his belt. He smashed 154 against Zimbabwe in 2009. Shakib slammed 134 against Canada in 2007, while Mushfiq stroked 144 against Sri Lanka in 2018.
