Bangladesh left-arm fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman has become the fourth fastest bowler in ODI cricket history to reach the milestone of 100 ODI wickets.
He reached the landmark in his 54th ODI, Bangladesh’s final group stage game against Pakistan in the ICC World Cup in England.
In the fifth ball of the 44th over, the 23-year-old took the wicket of Pakistan’s Haris Sohail, to claim his 100th ODI scalp.
It was the cutter-master’s 54th ODI and he ended up with figures of 10-0-75-5, taking his second five wicket haul in as many matches.
Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan holds the record for having taken 100 ODI wickets fastest, reaching the landmark in just 44 ODIs.
The bowler nicknamed ‘The Fizz’, now has 20 wickets in the tournament.
It is the record for the most number of wickets by a Bangladesh player in a World Cup.
Mustafizur now has the second most number of wickets in this World Cup, after Australia’s Mitchell Starc, who has 24 wickets.
