No, you can't have a workflow that have two statuses at the same time. It is against the principles of Jira, in my opinion. 

You can use subtasks to seperate issues that you want to have different statuses.

Or you can create a custom field that will serve as an extra status. 

But it is difficult to comment without knowing the main purpose of this.



we have two team which should work at same time in same issue and we have to track those two teams status so we need this option.

Then, I think you need to use clone issue option. You can use components to differ your teams and when you clone the issue you can change the component of each issue to the related team. That would be the best option, I believe.



But cloning of issue will create duplication while taking statics right and the process is to combine all the teams to work in a single track.

Well, they are still working on a single project. If reporting is what concerns you, you can use components to differ your reports. Also there is issue links, which indicates that your two issues (although two different teams are working on it) are related. 

Also as I suggested above, using subtasks would be another solution. You can create one issue and distribute the issue to your teams on subtasks. You can design a workflow that when all the subtasks are closed, the main issue should be closed, etc. Which one to use, depends on what you are expecting from Jira. But you cannot have two statuses at once on an issue.
