Bangladeshi spinner Mehdi Hasan Miraj sent Shane Moselli to the dressing room in the third session of the third day of the Dhaka Test. And by taking this wicket, he set a record of taking 100 wickets in Tests for Bangladesh. This Tiger spinner has played only 24 Test matches to take 100 wickets.

Mirage started the series against West Indies with 90 wickets. His victim in Chittagong was four wickets in two innings. After a wicketless first day in Mirpur, Enkruma Baner returned on the morning of the second day and his wicket count was 99. That one wicket in the first innings. On the third day, Shane Moselle was returned on Saturday and 100 were killed.

So far these 4 bowlers have got 100 wickets for Bangladesh in Tests. To reach the milestone, Taizul took 25 Tests, Shakib 26 and Rafique 33 Tests. Needless to say, of the four spinners, only Mirage is right-handed.

Bangladesh got off to a good start with the ball courtesy of Miraj’s fame. He took a 113-run lead in the first innings and went down to bat in the second innings, losing three wickets for 41 runs. As a result, at the end of the third day, the lead stood at 154 runs.
