Mashrafe Mortaza

Mashrafe Mortaza is a young, quick and aggressive. He made great strides under the tutelage of Andy Roberts, working on his stamina and fitness, and he was given a Test debut against Zimbabwe at Dhaka in 2001-02, after impressing for Bangladesh A. Though banging it in is his preferred style, Mashrafe proved adept at reining in his attacking instincts to concentrate on line and length. He excelled in the second Test against England in 2003-04, taking 4 for 60 in the first innings to keep Bangladesh in touch, but suffered a twisted knee towards the end of the game that kept him out of Tests for over a year. He was recalled towards the end of 2004, and subsequently enhanced his reputation on the inaugural tour of England, standing head and shoulders above his team-mates in a torrid series. He is not a complete mug with the bat. A persistant back injury caused him to miss the Test series in Sri Lanka in September 2005
