Star Bangladesh seamer Mustafizur Rahman hit a century of T20I wickets as the Tigers locked horns with England in a dead-rubber on Tuesday.

To bag the achievement, Mustafizur claimed the wicket of England's Dawid Malan in the 14th over of the second innings.

This feat put the 27-year-old in an elusive list that only has one cricketer from Bangladesh other than him. Standing in the same bracket as the legendary Shakib Al Hasan, Fizz now has a medal that is stitched to the pocket square of only five more male players.

Male cricketers with 100 T20I wickets

  • Tim Southee - 134 wickets
  • Shakib Al Hasan - 131 wickets
  • Rashid Khan - 126 wickets
  • Ish Sodhi - 114 wickets
  • Lasith Malinga - 107 wickets 
  • Mustafizur Rahman - 100 wickets

Meanwhile, England were cleanswept by Bangladesh, who after drubbing the visitors in the first two T20Is of the series, ran over them in the final match as well.

While Litton Das starred in the first innings with his half-century, the likes of Taskin Ahmed, Shakib, Mustafizur helped Bangladesh successfully defend 158 runs.
