Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan is on the cusp of a historic landmark during Bangladesh's first One Day International against South Africa which is going to be held on Sunday at the Diamond Oval in Kimberley.
Shakib is just 17 runs away from becoming the fifth cricketer ever to score 5,000 runs along with 200 wickets in the 50-over format of the game. If Shakib achieves this feat, he will join the likes of Sanath Jayasuriya, Shahid Afridi, Jacques Kallis and Abdul Razzak in this list.
Shakib has played 177 ODIs till date and he has scored 4,983 runs with 34 half centuries and 7 centuries and taken 224 wickets with a best figure of 47/5 in ODIs. Meanwhile,Shakib will also become only the second Bangladesh cricketer (after Tamim Iqbal) to score 5,000 ODI runs.
