Mushfiqur Rahim

Mushfiqur Rahim has completed 5000 test runs for Bangladesh, which is an incredible record. Rahim became the first Bangladeshi batsman to score 5000 Test runs and also the fastest to reach this landmark for Bangladesh. He achieved this feat during Bangladesh’s first innings against Sri Lanka in the first match.

Coming at number five, Rahim helped his team post a mammoth total of 465 runs to have a 68 runs lead over Sri Lanka. With his 68th run in the innings, Rahim touched the historical mark of 5000 runs.

Fellow opener Tamim Iqbal went ballistic with 133 runs. Now, Tamim Iqbal is only 19 runs away from touching 5000 runs milestone. He will be the second batsman for Bangladesh to achieve this feat.

Mushfiqur Rahim said, “Only in Bangladesh, I have seen that people compare me to Bradman when I score a century, but then when I don’t score runs I feel like digging a hole for myself.”

“I am one of the senior players so we are not going to be around for long. But this is becoming a culture, so the younger players need the support.

“If I have to spend so much time tackling these things off the field, our on-field duties get affected.

“I think there’s no value for experience in Bangladesh. It is a huge deal to have played for 17 years.

“It is a great feeling to become the first Bangladeshi to reach 5,000 Test runs. But I am sure I am not the last one.

“There’ll be a lot of capable players among our seniors and juniors who can reach 8,000 or 10,000 runs.”

This huge achievement not only reflects his immense talent, hardwork and discipline, but also the efforts and dedication of the Bangladesh Cricket Board and the entire Bangladesh Team. He has played a crucial role in guiding Bangladesh to the highest level of international cricket, which they had not reached before.

Mushfiqur Rahim’s 5000 test runs is a major achievement and testament to his dedication, talent and hard work. His experience and skills have been honed through the many test matches he has played, and his success in future matches is guaranteed. The team congratulated him on this amazing milestone and wished him all the best in continuing his cricketing career.

5000 test runs is a significant milestone in the cricketing career of any player, be he an international cricketer or not. It signifies an enormous amount of experience, and through this experience, Mushfiqur Rahim has attained various skills and techniques which are essential for successful international cricket. He has become a better player as a result of reaching this landmark, and his performances in future matches will be enhanced as a result.
