Among the batsmen from teams of the sub-continent, only five others made double centuries in New Zealand. They are Pakistan’s Mushtaq Mohammad, Javed Miandad and Mohammad Yousuf, Sri Lanka’s Aravinda de Silva and Kumar Sangakkara. Now the another man- absolutely the man is Saqib. He made test individual highest score for Bangladesh today ! The marathon innings closed when he made 217 runs !
Back on his way back to the dressing room where his teammates were on their feet giving him a standing ovation.
Before this, the talismanic cricketer from Magura had never scored a 150 in Tests. In fact, he has never been able to reach 130 in other first class innings.
