Spinner Mehidy Hasan Miraz removes Moseley to become the fastest Bangladeshi bowler to take 100 Test wickets on the third day of the Dhaka Test against the West Indies.

He became the fourth Bangladeshi bowler to take 100 Test wickets after Mohammad Rafique, Shakib Al Hasan, and Taijul Islam.

In terms of the number of Tests, Miraz is the fastest Bangladeshi bowler to reach the milestone in his 24th Test while the closest Taijul Islam played 25 Tests to take 100 wickets.

Mehidy reaches 98 wickets after taking eight wickets in the Chattogram Test, in which he also scored his maiden Test century.

Mehidy made an impressive debut against England and he took 19 wickets in the series in 2016, the best haul by a Bangladesh bowler in any series.
