Mushfiqur Rahim, by far the most dependable batsman in the Bangladesh squad, once again displayed his abilities in yesterday’s ICC Cricket World Cup match against South Africa. The 31-year-old added a record 142 runs for the third wicket alongside Shakib, who top scored for the Tigers with an 80-ball 78, laced with eight fours. Mushfiqur kept the score board ticking following his arrival at the crease and his 34th ODI fifty helped Bangladesh post their highest ever ODI total of 330. The wicketkeeper-batsman also performed his duties behind the stumps well. Even though he dropped South Africa opener Quinton de Kock, he immediately compensated by running out the left-hander with a direct hit following a mix-up between the batsman and Adien Markram.
