Find the top 10 BD Cricketers or Cricket Players in history.

10) Mohammad Rafique

One of those names from the early age BD side. The left-arm spinner made his ODI debut in 1995 and made the test debut in 2000. In a total of 159 international matches across formats, Rafique has scored over 2200 runs and made the batters his victim 226 times. During those early periods, when the Bangladesh team had little to offer, Rafique used to be one of the very few names who could perform consistently. Rafique had the privilege to play for the Asia XI as well.

9) Abdur Razzak

Another left-arm orthodox spinner to make it to this list. Abdur Razzak has been one of the best spinners ever produced by the country. He was not an easy bowler to take on for the batters. In a total of 200 international games across 3 formats, he has scored a bit over 1,000 runs while collecting 279 wickets. The current national team selector also featured for the Asia XI as well.

8) Mehidy Hasan Miraz

If you are wondering to see his name in this list, then you might not have taken a look at his stats as well as his importance. Miraz who is just 26 (yet to fulfill as of September 2023), already has over 250 international wickets beside his name. The spin-bowling all-rounder is also a handy batter who has more than 2500 international runs as well. Don’t forget some of the heroics he has already shown including that last wicket victory against India, a couple of unbelievable ODI hundreds. No doubt, when he retires, his position in this chart might go up. We suspect he will finish as the 2nd best all-rounder in the country’s history by then.

7) Mustafizur Rahman

No doubt, he is one of the most talented and gifted bowlers in BD cricket history. The Fizz might be blamed for not being able to hold on the way he started but still, he has been the toughest BD bowler for the batters. With almost 300 international wickets (a few shy of 300), the Fizz has produced many match-winning performances for the country. Apart from that, he has also shone the country’s name in different franchise cricket tournaments around the globe. Bangladesh Cricket Players Monthly Salary List 2023 (Match Fee).

6) Mohammad Ashraful

Ashraful has got more than 6600 international runs along with 47 wickets. His stats might not seem that much to you considering modern-day cricket, but it’s the importance and impact he had in Bangladesh cricket. This guy was the man who engineered Bangladesh’s early-day glories in world cricket when the country had almost no consistent performers at all. He helped the side have its first-ever victory against Australia, and also against South Africa. He also played a vital role when the Tigers beat WI to cross the group stage of the 2007 ICC T20 WC. Ashraful is the man who taught Bangladesh, how to win against the giants.

5) Mahmudullah Riyad

One of those 5 columns of BD cricket. Mahmudullah has almost 10 thousand runs in international cricket and is one of the top 5 scorers across formats in the country’s history. Riyad, a batting all-rounder also has more than 160 int. wickets as well. He has 8 hundred as well. Not only do these stats talk for him but also the match-winning performances he has provided during crucial stages and big games or events. He played vital roles in the sides qualifying for the 2015 WC quarterfinal, 2017 CT semifinal, and also to the Nidahas Trophy final, and many more.

4) Mashrafe Bin Mortaza

Mashrafe is the 2nd highest wicket-taker in the country’s history right after Shakib Al Hasan. He has got 389 wickets wearing the BD shirts while having more than 2900 runs as well. No doubt, he has been the best pacer or pace bowling all-rounder ever produced by the country so far. But the most important he had on this side was that he has been one of the best-ever captains in the history of BD cricket. He was the captain to take the side to the 2015 CWC quarterfinal, 2017 ICC CT semifinal, 2016 & 2018 Asia Cup finals.

3) Mushfiqur Rahim

The best ever wicket-keeper batsman in the country’s history. Mushfiq, the former BD cricket team captain, has more than 14000 international runs! He is the 2nd highest run-scorer of all time for the Tigers who is not far behind from the top spot held by Tamim Iqbal. This little man from Bogra has more than 400 dismissals as well.
