To play in the forthcoming ICC Champions Trophy 2017 in England and Wales, Bangladesh are now in England, and their captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza is on the verge of creating a new record.

This time the record is very special, as Mashrafe is now just one wicket away from becoming the first Bangladeshi bowler to take at least 100 wickets for the Tigers away from home or at a neutral venue.

The Champions Trophy will kick-start on June 1 with Bangladesh facing of the hosts England in the tournament opener. If everything goes smoothly, it is highly likely that the Narail Express will step into the record in that very match. Besides England, Bangladesh will also take on Australia and New Zealand in the group round of Champions Trophy.
