Bangladesh’s senior wicket-keeper batsman Mushfiqur Rahim has shown a fighting game in the ongoing test match against Sri Lanka. On the fourth day of the match, Rahim scored a century and during this innings he also touched the 5000-run mark in Test cricket. Along with this, Mushfiqur has also made a place in a special club of legendary batsmen like Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson and Joe Root. Talking about the cricketers currently playing, only five batsmen crossed the 5000-5000 runs in both the Test and ODI formats before today. Now Mushfiqur has also joined this list. Mushfiqur was dismissed for 105 against Sri Lanka. He now has 6697 ODIs and 5037 Test runs in his account.
Talking about the cricketers currently playing, only Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson, Joe Root, David Warner and Angelo Mathews were able to do this, but now Mushfiqur has also become a part of this club. The surprising thing is that even veteran players like Steve Smith and Babar Azam have not reached this list yet. Babar Azam has 4261 ODIs and 2851 Test runs in his account. Talking about Smith, he has scored 8010 Test runs, but in ODI cricket, he has only 4378 runs in his account.
Another Bangladesh cricketer is going to be included in this list soon. Tamim Iqbal has a total of 4981 Test runs and 7826 One Day International runs in his account. India’s Rohit Sharma has also not been able to make it to this list yet. Rohit has 9283 ODIs and 3137 Test runs in his account. At the same time, Virat Kohli has so far scored 8043 Test and 12311 One Day International runs.
