Litton Das became the sixth Bangladeshi to get 1000 runs in T20Is on Saturday, during the first of three T20Is against Zimbabwe.

Litton fell 20 runs shy of the milestone in his 52nd T20I. He accomplished the feat while on route to a quick-fire 19-ball 32 before getting run-out in an unexpected manner.

The Tigers eventually lost by 17 runs after the hosts produced a massive total of 205 for three. They are down 1-0 in the three-match T20I series.

Litton, who has been in excellent form recently, has now scored 1012 runs at an average of 20.24 in 52 T20Is. He joins Mahmudullah Riyad, Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Soumya Sarkar as Bangladesh batter who have scored over a thousand runs in the format.
