Sports Desk: Bangladesh will embark on a whitewash mission shortly. If they win today, a 3-0 series win will add 10 more points to the ICC Super League. So Bangladesh is not taking the match lightly.

As much fear of West Indies in Shakib's whirl. He returned home after a one-year ban and was found to be quite hungry.

He took 4 wickets in the first match with the ball. After that he took 2 wickets in the second match. In all, 6 wickets were taken in two matches. With these 6 wickets, Shakib Al Hasan's collection stands at 266 wickets.

Shakib standing in front of a unique milestone. Maybe he knows that very well. That is why one by one the Windies are returning the batsmen to the dressing room and making the wicket heavy.

And waiting for only 4 wickets. Then his wicket count will be 270. Then Shakib will become the owner of the highest wicket in ODIs as a Bangladeshi bowler.

The record is still held by former Bangladesh captain Mashrafe bin Mortuza. His wicket count is 269.

If he can perform like the first one in the last ODI, Shakib will be the highest wicket taker for Bangladesh in Chittagong. However, if not, Shakib will share Mashrafe's record with 3 wickets, the fans are waiting for him.

Spinner Abdur Razzak is on the list of highest wicket takers after Mashrafe and Shakib. His number of wickets in ODIs is 207.
