Bangladesh - Three to watch
SHAHRIAR NAFEES

Shahriar Nafees
Age 21, left-handed batsman
Bangladesh's cricketer of year in 2006, Nafees was tipped as a future Test captain even before he was selected to tour England as a 19-year-old.

Scored 75 in his fourth ODI against Australia and was made vice-captain for the Champions Trophy in India.

Made an unbeaten century there against Zimbabwe, and took another hundred off them a few weeks later in a one-day series the Tigers won emphatically 5-0.

MASHRAFE MORTAZA

Mashrafe Mortaza
Age 23, right-arm fast-medium, right handed batsman
A strong, aggressive quick bowler who made his international debut aged 18.

A consistent wicket-taker, he captured 3-54 in the home series against Australia, dismissing none other than Ricky Ponting for just five runs, although the Champions Trophy was not so prolific for him with only two wickets in three matches.

Proved his worth with the bat against Scotland late last year, blasting five sixes in an unbeaten 51 from 27 balls, a match in which he also took two wickets.

AFTAB AHMED

Aftab Ahmed
Age 21, right-handed batsman, right-arm seamer
Made a duck on his debut against South Africa in the 2004 Champions Trophy staged in England, but a wiry top order batsman who is an integral part of the Tigers team.

Hit a half-century against India and then added another, featuring two sixes, in the first match of the away series against England.

Fired two more sixes in 59 from 55 balls against the West Indies in the Champions Trophy in India, and warmed up for the World Cup with successive fifties in the 2-0 home series win against Scotland.
