CRICKET- Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan on Saturday became the first Bangladeshi cricketer to take 200 wickets in Test cricket.

Shakib achieved the milestone in the first Test against West Indies in Chittagong on Saturday. 

He is the fastest cricketer in the history of Test cricket to complete the double of 200 wickets and 3000 runs. Shakib achieved this feat in just 54 Test, one less than legendary English cricketer Ian Botham’s long-standing record of 55.

The second Test between the two teams will be played at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka, starting November 30.
