Veteran left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak became the first Bangladeshi bowler to take 400 wickets in the List A cricket, a feat that he achieved today during a Dhaka Premier League (DPL) match between Prime Bank Cricket Club and Uttara Sporting Club.

Playing for Prime Bank, Razzak claimed 4-15 to rattle Uttara Sporting Club and guided his side to 57-run win by D/L method. With these four wickets, his wicket-tally now stands 403.

“I am really happy to reach the milestone as the first Bangladeshi bowler in List A cricket,” Razzak told the BSS today. “But it was on the card. I expected it to happen at some point in my career. But honestly, that was not the target. In fact, I never set any target for myself.”

Though the veteran left-arm spinner continued performing well in a domestic level, a national call-up looked unlikely for him, something what he also knows very well.

“I know at this stage, it is tough to get a national call-up. A national call-up indeed is not in my hands. What is in my hand, is to perform better. And I will be happy if I can perform well regularly. That’s the ultimate goal.”

Razzak has also been quite a force in the country’s first-class cricket, taking wickets in abundance. His performance forced his way back to Bangladesh’s Test squad last year during the series against Sri Lanka.

“As I said I believe in performing. Rest of the things will depend on the team management and the selectors. I will be happy to perform always. And I feel fresh still."
