Bangladesh Cricketer Anamul Haque Creates A World Record

The 29-year-old Bangladesh cricketer Anamul Haque has recently created a new world record in List A cricket as the right-handed batter became the first to score 1000+ runs in a List A tournament.

Dhaka Premier Division Cricket League 2022 just finished last Thursday (28th April), which was a club List A tournament in Bangladesh. Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club won their first-ever title in this tournament's history.

Anamul Haque scored 1138 runs in the tournament

Anamul Haque represented Prime Bank Cricket Club, which finished as the third-best team in that tournament. However, Anamul batted incredibly well in that tournament as he scored 1138 runs in 15 innings with an average of 81.28. During that tournament, the right-handed batter smashed three centuries and nine half-centuries. Moreover, he also bagged two wickets in that entire competition.


Anamul Haque ended the tournament with five consecutive 50+ scores

Anamul started that tournament as a wicketkeeper-batter with a knock of 60 runs as an opener against City Club. Then his scores in that tournament were 127, 53, 33, 184, 15, 94, 77, 85, 0, 77, 73, 52, 112* and 96 runs respectively. His strike rate in this tournament was 98.61. While he completed 1000 runs in that tournament during his 14th innings of the tournament, he extended the marvelous form in the last game too.


Tom Moody was the previous record holder

Former Australian cricketer Tom Moody was the previous record holder for scoring the most runs in a List A tournament. During the Refuge Assurance League 1991, Worcestershire right-handed batter Moody scored 917 runs in 15 innings.
