Bangladesh pace sensation Mustafizur Rahman has attained a career-best 18th place in the MRF Tyres ICC Player Rankings for ODI Bowlers after taking six wickets in the ongoing Ireland tri-series, which has still one match left to be played on Wednesday between New Zealand and Bangladesh.

The 21-year old Bangladesh bowler did not get any opportunity to bowl in the first game of the tri-series as the match was washed out after a heavy rain.

Mustafizur, who was trying to get his rhythm back after coming back from an injury, picked up two wickets in the next match against New Zealand. He was also economical, conceding 33 runs from 10 overs.

But his bowling was even better in the match against Ireland on Friday as he captured four wickets conceding only 23 runs in 9 overs. He was awarded Player of Match after his side’s comfortable victory in the match which was led by him in the bowling department.
