Al Sahariar
Born: 23/4/78
Team: Dhaka Metropolis
ODI debut: 16/3/99
Past World Cups: -

Right-handed batsman
Right-arm leg-spin bowler

One of Bangladesh's most talented batsmen, Al-Sahariar has suffered at the hands of the selectors.

In and out of the team and up and down the order, his best batting position remains a matter of conjecture.

But what is not in doubt is that he now fully deserves a place in the team.

In one-day cricket he is primarily used as an opener, although some suggest he would be better utilised in the middle order.

The 24-year-old holds records for both the second and sixth wicket partnerships and plays his shots with strength.

He should figure prominently in Bangladesh's campaign, not least because of his ability in the field.
