Mustafizur Rahman has set many records with the ball in the shortest version of cricket, the T20 format. Now, he set a new record with the bat. The Tiger seamer holds the record for the highest number of innings played at no. 11 in T20I.

Rajasthan Royals faced Mumbai Indians in their 13th match in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Tuesday. Batting first, Rajasthan managed to score only 92 runs for 9 wickets. Batting at no. 11, Mustafiz played an unbeaten 8-run innings off 7 balls with one six.

With this, Mustafiz batted for 32 times of his T20I career – which is the highest batting record at number 11 in this format. Earlier, the record was held by Australia’s Shaun Tait – he has batted at number 11 for 31 times. Besides, Imran Tahir has batted at number 11 for 29 times.

Mustafiz took 1 wicket for 32 runs in 2.2 overs with the ball. Chasing an easy target, Mumbai Indians defeated Rajasthan with 74 balls and 8 wickets in hand.
