Habibul began his captaincy just over a year ago and recently, at home to Zimbabwe, made history by becoming the first Bangladesh skipper to win a Test match and a one-day series.
Clearly he is our number one batsman in terms of his record - with 2299 Test runs coming into this series he has almost twice as many as anyone else in the side.
He has been an inspiration from that point of view.
And he will be looking to improve his figures further and help the team with his leadership on this tour.
