Why Mushfiqur Rahim is called the best batsman of Bangladesh? Striking cricket in T-20s, guiding the team for One Day International and test of patience in the test matches. He proved himself as a package for Bangladesh cricket earlier considering all.

Mushfique could not prove his ability in both the innings of first test match in Sylhet against Zimbabwe. As Mushfique failed the appearance of Bangladesh team was faded. The test match ended in just four days.

With the shame of defeat when the team arrived in Dhaka not only the body language has changed, the performance also has changed. On the first day Mominul missed his career’s first double century. But Mushfique did not make the tigers supporters frustrated like Mominul.

Mushfique played an innings of 200 runs with Ashraful in 2013. Then he played more but could not see the 200 mark.

At last after five years he saw the double century. Mr. dependable began his innings on first day after three early wickets down. Then he made a partnership of 266 runs with Mominul. After departure of Mominul he made another partnership of 73 runs with Mahmudullah.

On the second day after lunch Mhmudullah and Ariful got out by Jervis. But Mushfique did not stop. He made his second double century for the career with support from Miraz.

Earlier Tamim Iqbal and Sakib Al Hasan scored double centuries for Bangladesh.
