Hannan Sarkar
No image available
Born: 1/12/82
Team: Barisal
ODI debut: 7/8/02
Past World Cups: -

Right-handed batsman
Right-arm medium bowler

Sarkar is one of the new wave of young Bangladeshi cricketers knocking on the door of the national team.

He has played bit-part cameos in every series over the last 12 months, bar the ICC Champions Trophy.

And the 20-year-old has bounced back from that disappointment, the true mark of any good player.

But it is unlikely that he will be given too prominent a role at the World Cup.

Although he has scored two half-centuries in his four Tests to date, he has not taken to one-day cricket with quite the same success.

He will be a man to watch at future World Cups, but this one has come too soon for him to truly flourish on the world stage.
