Sakib crosses 100 wicket landmark

Ex captain of Bangladesh cricket team Sakib Al Hassan has reached the 100th wicket landmark. Now he has one hundred and two test wickets under his belt. He becomes the second Bangladeshi cricketer to take hundred wickets in test match.

Mohammad Rafique was the first Bangladeshi to take hundred wickets in test match. Rafique became a legend in Bangladesh cricket. Number of his wickets would be much higher if he was included in Bangladesh test team earlier. Selectors thought Rafique is suitable for one day matches only. Later Rafique became a regular member of Bangladesh test team and showed his class.

Now Sakib has crossed Rafique and it is expected that he will be in Bangladesh cricket for some more years, so may be Sakib is going to touch more landmarks. Sakib is also a regular name for ‘number one all rounder’ in ICC’s ODI rating.

Sakib touched this landmark today in the test match against West Indies at Khulna.
