Mushfiq hits century

Mushfiqur Rahim hit a century on the fourth day of the opening Test against Sri Lanka at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram on Wednesday.

Earlier, he became the first Bangladesh batter to reach 5000-run landmark in Test cricket.

He achieved the feat with a couple to fine leg off Asitha Fernando.

Coming into this Test, Mushfiqur was Bangladesh's leading run-scorer with 4932 runs.

Having started his career in 2005, Mushfiqur is Bangladesh's most experienced Test cricketer, playing in his 81st Test.  He is also the longest-serving international cricketer from the country.

Earlier, opener Tamim Iqbal hit a century.  He smashed his 10th Test ton - making 100 off 162.
