Mehrab Hossain’s name is specially associated in the cricket history of Bangladesh despite not playing many matches. Mehrab’s innings of 101 against Zimbabwe in 1999 is Bangladesh’s first century in ODIs.
After two eras, Farzana Haque scored the first century in women’s cricket. Today, Farzana reached the triple figure in 156 balls in the third ODI of the series against India at Mirpur Sherebangla Stadium.
Farzana also came close to scoring another feat on the first ODI century for the country. He came in as the opening batsman and remained on the wicket till the 50th over. Couldn’t come back unbeaten as he was run out on the last ball of the innings. He scored 107 runs in 7 fours off 160 balls before getting out. While getting up, Farzana was congratulated by the audience as well as the Indian fielders.
