Tamim Iqbal became Bangladesh’s fastest 5,000-run batsman in Test cricket against the West Indies on the first day of the Test at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on Thursday.
The southpaw who died on 29 arrived at the achievement in the wake of scoring three runs off a Kemar Roach conveyance in the seventh over.
Among the Bangladeshi cricketers, Tamim is the second batsman to enter the 5,000 runs club in Test, playing 129 innings in 68 Tests.
Previous chief Mushfiqur Rahim turned into the principal Bangladeshi cricketer to score 5,000 runs in Test cricket, playing 149 innings in 81 Tests.
Tamim, who required only 19 races to accomplish the accomplishment in the last Test match against Sri Lanka at home, flopped because of his physical issue.
The other driving scorers of Bangladesh in Test Cricket are Shakib Al Hasan (4113), Mominul Haque (3525), and Habibul Bashar (3026).
