Manjural Islam

ODI debut: 16/3/99
Past World Cups: 1999

Left-arm fast-medium bowler
Left-handed batsman

Manjural, who has missed only one match in the last year, will carry the burden of leading Bangladesh's bowling attack.

The rangy left-armer made his debut shortly before the last World Cup and figured in four of the five matches in the subsequent campaign.

In only his second match he had the honour of claiming his country's first World Cup wicket.

He will be hoping for a similar success this time around, building to better results as the tournament progresses.

With the ball in hand he works away at batsmen, probing at any weakness until he gets his man.

And Manjural's control with the ball will be crucial to Bangladesh's hopes.
