Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib al Hasan has reached the milestone of 5,000 runs in T20s, and achieved a rare double in the shortest format of the game.

Along with his 5,000th run Saturday, the 33-year old has now achieved a rare double landmark of scoring 5,000 runs and taking 350 or more wickets. 

Shakib is only the second player in the history of T20s to achieve such a feat after the West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, who has 6,331 runs and 512 wickets in 471 T20s.

The left-hander needed three runs to achieve the feat and he scored exactly that for Gemcon Khulna against Gazi Group Chattogram in the Bangabandhu T20 Cup in Mirpur’s Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium.

Shakib’s third innings in succession since his one-year ban expired ended in disappointing fashion as he was caught at mid on against spinner Nahidul Islam in the first ball of the fifth over of the innings.

The 33-year old has played 311 T20s so far, including Saturday's game, and taken 355 wickets.

Apart from Shakib and Bravo, another West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell has scored 5,000 or more runs (5,728 runs in 341 T20s) but taken 300 wickets.
