Shakib made his Test debut in 2007 while Tamim entered into Tests in 2008. They have turned out to be Bangladesh’s greatest players ever. Both of them have played 49 Tests each.
Only three players have played 50 or more Tests for Bangladesh- Habibul Bashar, Mohammad Ashraful and Mushfiqur Rahim. Shakib and Tamim will be joining the list on Sunday.
Mushfiqur wants to make Shakib and Tamim’s landmark Tests memorable. He hopes the team plays well against the Aussies.
“Shakib and Tamim are the bright heroes in Bangladesh cricket history. They are our big dependable players too. They are going to play their 50th Tests, the whole team has that in the mind,” the Tigers captain said.
“We want to do something special in the match for Shakib and Tamim. It will be a great gift for them if the whole team plays well and succeeds. I believe they will also give their best to mark the match memorable,” he added.
