Bangladesh profiles: Mohammad Rafique

By Dav Whatmore
Bangladesh coach

FACTFILE
Mohammad Rafique
Left-arm spin bowler; left-handed batsman
Born: 5/9/70
Test debut: v India, Dhaka, 2000
ODI debut:v India, Sharjah, 1995

Probably unlucky not to have played more Tests in his career, he is a left-handed spinner who knows that little patch of his run-up and the 22 yards of pitch very well.

He thoroughly enjoys spin bowling and spends hours in the nets.

He has developed his batting and is one of very few people to have scored a Test hundred batting at nine, against West Indies in St Lucia last year.

I always think it is a bit dangerous to go into a Test without at least one spinner, whatever the conditions at the start, so he is likely to feature.
