Fizz gains career-best ranking in ODI
Tigers’ seam sensation Mustafizur Rahman moved up to 18th in the ICC Players Rankings for ODI bowlers, reveals an ICC press release issued on Monday.
The left-arm pacer, known as cutter master, has taken six wickets in the tri-series in Ireland that included four wickets against the home side in their third game that Bangladesh won by eight wickets on May 19. With one game still to go against New Zealand, against whom he took two wickets, on May 24 he has an opportunity to rank up further.
The 22-year-old, who has shown that he is getting his pace and rhythm back in Tri nation tournament after recovering from shoulder operation, is now placed just beneath South African quick Dale Steyn with 583 points. It is Mustafizur’s best ranking in his short career that started with a bang in 2015. In his 17 ODIs he has taken 42 wickets at an average of 15.28.
