Habibul Bashar
Habibul Bashar
Born: 17/8/72
Team: Biman
ODI debut: 6/4/95
Past World Cups: -

Right-handed batsman
Right-arm off-spin bowler

Bashar is one of the team's older heads and his experience will prove vital at the top of the order.

However, despite making his debut in 1995, this will be the 30-year-old's first World Cup.

Over the years he has been in and out of the squad but most recently was one of the stars in Bangladesh's tour of South Africa.

He is one of the most naturally-gifted batsmen in the Bangladesh squad and will be a key wicket for any opponents.

Bashar will most likely be employed at first or second wicket down where he can maximise his ability against pace bowling.

On the downside he is often troubled by spin and has a tendency to lose concentration and throw his wicket away having played himself in.
