Written by Abhishek Patil

Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim reached new heights in his much promising career as the swashbuckling batsman slammed a sensational double century in the one-off Test match against visitors Zimbabwe at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka on Monday. Rahim played a gem of an innings and his third Test double ton helped the Bangla Tigers take a comfortable 286-run lead over the visitors in the one-off match. Bangladesh closed their innings on 560 for six in the final session of the third day.

In reply, Zimbabwe reached nine for two at stumps Day 3 with Bangladesh’s spinner Nayeem Hasan claiming two wickets on two balls for the host nation. Thus, this also means that Zimbabwe need 286 runs to put the Rahim starrer side bat again in the one-off Test contested at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

Fresh from a record-outing with the willow, Mushfiqur opened up on his double ton celebration. When asked about his celebration after completing the magical figure. Mushfiqur revealed that his son loves dragons and he wants to dedicate the sublime innings as a tribute to him. “The celebration was for my son. He loves dragons so much, he likes this posture. So I did it for him,” Mushfiqur said in a media interaction.
