In the Test cricket, earlier just two bowlers of Bangladesh have taken 100 wickets. Mohammad Rafiq who had almost eight years of professional career, he played 33 test matches and took a total of 100 wickets. And for the country, he is the very first bowler to take 100 wickets so far. Later, Shakib Al Hasan has come to the list and as the 2nd bowler, he has taken 100 wickets. In Test cricket, Shakib has taken the highest number of wickets till now. In the last year, at the same venue of Chittagong, he touched the milestone of taking 200 wickets. The most interesting fact is that all three top wicket-takers in Test cricket for the Tigers are spinners and all three of them are left arm!
