Staff Correspondent: Shakib Al Hasanhas become the third Bangladesh batsman to score a double hundred in Test cricket as well as highest individual scorer.

Mushfiqur Rahim, who smashed 200 against Sri Lanka at Galle in 2013 was the first Bangladesh batsman to reach the milestone.

In May 1015, Tamim Iqbal has surpassed Mushfiqur Rahim with a glorious double hundred against Pakistan.

But with hitting a magnificent double ton against New Zealand in the ongoing Test match at the Basin Reserve in Wellington, Shakib included his name with Mushfiq and Tamim.

On his way to achieving this enormous glory, Shakib sent the ball 30 times to the boundary.

Leading from the front, Shakib smashed his 4th Test century and crossed the 3000-run mark.

The Tigers are now on 538 for 6 in 125 overs with Sabbir not out on 6 and Miraj 0.

Bangladesh starts the day on 154 for three in 40.2 overs with Mominul batting on 64 and Shakib Al Hasan giving him company on five.
