Both speak Bengali as their mother tongue, and are vital members of their respective sides. Regardless, the other stars in their respective sides often overshadow these two. Indian wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha, making a comeback to the side after almost 3 months, scored his second Test ton. Replacing Parthiv Patel behind the stumps, he took 3 fine catches. Bangladesh’s captain Mushfiqur Rahim, on the other hand, made a comeback as well, and it was his 127 that took Bangladesh to 388 in the first innings in reply to India’s 687 for 6. LIVE CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs Bangladesh, one-off Test at Hyderabad

Mushfiqur Rahim 91* 4,931 200 34.97 8 28 165

Both have to keep wickets to good spin bowlers and have a job with the bat in the middle-order. Mushfiqur also leads his side. He has a slightly better record in Test cricket, given his experience. However, First-Class numbers reveal a more proper comparison and Saha is way ahead in terms of that.
