Alok Kapali
Alok Kapali
Born: 1/12/84
Team: Sylhet
ODI debut: 4/8/02
Past World Cups: -

Right-handed batsman
Right-arm leg-spin bowler

Kapali has come to prominence in the last six months.

Since making his debut against Sri Lanka in August he has played in every outing - 11 successive matches - top-scoring with an unbeaten 89.

That knock, off 93 balls, came in their December series against the West Indies.

He also scored 45 against a first-rate Australian attack in the ICC Champions Trophy, Bangladesh's top score in a one-sided match.

But more than just starring with the bat, he gives Bangladesh options with his slow bowling, although that still has space for further development.

He took his first wicket against the Windies but was hit to all corners in short, un-economical spells.
