That was not the end of Miraz’s destruction. He grabbed his seventh five-wicket haul in the second innings to give Bangladesh a big win.

In total, Miraz took nine wickets on day three. He needed one more wicket to become only the third bowler to take ten wickets in a single day’s play.

Recently, Pakistan’s Yasir Shah shattered New Zealand’s batting line-up with 14-wicket haul in Dubai. He took 8/41 in the first innings and two in the second innings on day three in that match, becoming only the second player to pick ten wickets in a day.

Nearly 20 years back, in February 1999, all of Anil Kumble’s historical 10/74 in the second innings against Pakistan came on the fourth day which was the first instance of such record.
