Mehidy Hasan Miraz was on 92 when Nayeem Hasan got out and the last batsman, Mustafizur Rahman came in to the crease in the second day of the first Test against West Indies in Chattogram.
Miraz faced the first three deliveries in the next over from Rahkeem Cornwall before taking a single and that brought Mustafiz on strike.
Mustafiz faced the next three balls, defending two and taking a double off Cornwall.
In the next over, the 148th of the innings by Jomel Warrican, Miraz hit a boundary off the first ball to reach 97, a double off the second to reach 99 and then two more off the fourth ball to reach his maiden Test century.
Miraz has revealed the conversations that took place between him and Mustafiz when he was in the 90s and they were batting together.
"Mustafiz was telling me, 'I'm feeling nervous. What if I get out when you're in the 90s and you can't reach your century because of me?' I told Mustafiz that he shouldn't worry and whatever is in our fate is in the hand of Allah," Miraz told the media in the post-day press-conference.
Miraz's century helped Bangladesh pile on a commanding 430 runs in the first innings and the all-rounder also gave credit to his senior players Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim for his century.
"Tamim Bhai gave me some valuable advice on how to play the balls that come at your body with a straight bat and not try to play it with a crossed bat. When Shannon Gabriel was bowling at my body, I played with a straight bat and it paid off. Mushfiq Bhai also helped me a lot. He comes to practice early and he would bring me with him too. When he would bat, he would also make me bat in the nets. Even a week ago, I worked on my batting with him. He also told me to not play away from my body and to leave balls outside off stump and to take it ball-by-ball. Both of them helped me a lot," Miraz explained.
Miraz was also full of praise for Shakib Al Hasan as he came on to bat when Shakib was batting and Shakib helped him calm his nerves.
"I was nervous when I came to bat and Shakib Bhai was just telling me to play my natural game and to back myself. If I feel it's there to be hit, then to hit it and to play paddle sweeps instead of slog sweeps. That's a low risk shot which can get me runs compared to the slog sweep and these kinds of things gave me motivation and helped me settle down," Miraz concluded.
