Bangladesh will play their fourth match in the tri-nation series against Sri Lanka on Thursday and Mustafizur can become the quickest Bangladeshi bowler to take 50 International wickets.

The quickest bowler to take 50 international wickets in the world is Sri Lanka’s Ajantha Mendis. The veteran spinner just needed 19 matches to take 50 wickets and the second quickest is India’s Ajit Agarkar.
