Sanwar Hossain
No image available
Born: 5/8/73
Team: Biman
ODI debut: 10/1/98
Past World Cups: -

Right-handed batsman
Right-arm off-spin bowler

Hossain made his one-day debut more than five years ago but has never held down a permanent position in the team.

That is until now.

Having missed out on the 2002 ICC Champions Trophy, he has played in every match since - his longest run in the side.

In those matches he has come in at either four or five and with a bit more confidence he will prove more consistent.

His value to the side is boosted by his ability to turn over his arm and in domestic cricket he is considered an all-rounder.

The step up in class exposes his weaknesses in both disciplines but his doughty batting style should give others the freedom to flourish around him.
