Bangladesh profiles: Mashrafe bin Mortaza

By Dav Whatmore
Bangladesh coach

FACTFILE
Mashrafee Mortaza
Right-arm fast-medium bowler; right-handed batsman
Born: 5/10/83
Test debut: v Sri Lanka, Colombo, 2002
ODI debut: v Sri Lanka, Colombo, 2002

This kid has the capability to develop not just as a fast bowler but as an all-rounder.

He is a natural, which is a wonder because in his short career he has had two knee reconstructions, both of which have put him out for a year.

He's a very good bowler, able to move the ball both ways off the wicket and with a strong desire to beat the bat.

He's a country boy from a small town called Norail and had barely played first-class cricket before making his Test debut.
