Mahmudullah fourth Bangladeshi to 5,000 ODI runs
Mahmudullah Riyad became the fourth Bangladesh batter to reach the 5,000 ODI runs landmark as Bangladesh were building around a half-century from Najmul Hossain Shanto in the third and final match against New Zealand in Mirpur on Tuesday.
Mahmudullah, the right-handed batter, reached the milestone in the 16th over by taking a single off Lockie Ferguson.
Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim are the three other batters to have reached the milestone before Mahmudullah for Bangladesh.
Mahmudullah was batting on 10 with Shanto, the stand-in skipper on 51, as Bangladesh reached 112 for 4 after 21 overs.
