Mushfiqur Rahim Completed 1000 ODI World Cup Runs

Hosts India vs Bangladesh at Pune was another important match at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, where the home team maintained their winning streak by winning all their first four matches of the tournament. During that game, Bangladesh wicketkeeper-batter Mushfiqur Rahim achieved a special World Cup milestone as the right-handed batter became the third wicket keeper-batter to complete 1000 ODI World Cup runs.

Despite Bangladesh getting a solid start after winning the toss with a 93-run opening partnership between Tanzid Hasan and Litton Das, which was also the country’s record opening partnership in their ODI World Cup history, the batting line-up faced trouble after the fall of the first wicket.

Bangladesh were struggling at 137/4 when the experienced and in-form wicketkeeper-batter Mushfiqur Rahim came to bat. After his two consecutive 50s in previous matches, Rahim scored another vital 38 runs in 46 balls against India before Ravindra Jadeja’s incredible catch at backward point sent him back to the dressing room.
