ODI Career

Ironically, Mithun became the top scorer for Bangladesh in his first ODI match played at Dhaka in June 2014 against the visiting Indians. Unfortunately, Mithun’s 26 was a wasted effort, as Bangladesh was bowled out for 58 while chasing a modest target of 105. After that series, Mithun had to wait for four years before getting a chance to play ODI cricket for Bangladesh. In September 2018, in the Asia Cup match against Sri Lanka held in Dubai, Mithun made 63 after being involved in a 131-run partnership with Mushfiqur Rahim. After Bangladesh had set a target of 262, Sri Lanka were bowled out for 124 to give Bangladesh a well-deserved win. In 27 ODI matches, Mithun has scored 575 runs at an average of 28.75 with the highest score of 63. He has also taken 7 catches.

Test Career

Mithun played his first Test match in November 2018 against the visiting Zimbabwe side. Though he began his Test career rather ominously with a duck, Mithun fully compensated for the failure with a 67 in the second innings. Fortunately for the young man, Bangladesh won the match. More often than not, in the matches that followed, Mithun got off to a good start but did not develop it into a big innings. A fighting knock of 47 at Wellington in March 2019 on the Bangladesh tour of New Zealand was not enough to prevent Bangladesh from losing by an innings. A similar occasion happened at Rawalpindi in February 2020 during the Bangladesh tour of Pakistan. A feisty 63 in the first innings – coming in at 95/4, Mithun was ninth out at 233 – could not prevent Bangladesh from collapsing to 233 all out. Eventually, Pakistan won the match by an innings. In 9 Test matches, Mithun has scored 308 runs at an average of 19.25 with the highest score of 67. He has also taken 4 catches.

T20I Career

Mithun had a disappointing debut with a duck in his first T20I against Sri Lanka at Chattogram in February 2014. Two years later, in February 2016, he made a match-winning T20I score of 47, helping BD achieve a score of 133/8. In reply, the UAE could make no more than 82. Other scores of 23 and 27 came in two matches lost by Bangladesh against Australia and India. In 15 T20I matches, Mithun has scored 122 runs at 12.20 average with the highest score of 47. He has also taken 3 catches.
