Bangladesh's Mushfiqur Rahim averaged over 60 in the qualification period

Let’s play a game. Using a base mark of 200 runs, which keeper had the highest average of the past 12 months. England’s run machine Jonny Bairstow? Maybe Proteas star Quinton de Kock? Or India’s Wriddhiman Saha? Nope, nope and nope. Try Bangladesh’s Mushfiqur Rahim.
Through just six Tests the diminutive star made a massive impact for the emerging nation, notching two centuries. He did, however, hand over the gloves to youngster Liton Das during the Sri Lanka series. If that’s his future – as a specialist batsman – he will be following in the footsteps of Kumar Sangakkara and it could extend the 30-year-old’s career.

Six Tests, 615 runs at 61.5.
Two centuries. Top score of 159.
13 catches, one stumping.
