Bangladesh Cricket Players
Shahadat Hossain was discovered during a talent-spotting camp in Narayanganj and whisked away to the Bangladesh Institute of Sports (BKSP) for refinement, and after being given his first international exposure during the tournament, he was rapidly called up for the Bangladesh A team. Shahadat has all the necessary attributes for a genuine fast bowler. He is tall, comes in off a smooth run-up, and doesn't put unnecessary pressure on his body with his slightly open-chested angular delivery position. He has a strong frame and endurance in abundance. He is naturally aggressive and above everything, has raw pace. His Test debut, against England at Lord's in 2005, was a chastening experience as he conceded 101 runs in just 12 overs. Since then, he's impressed with a couple of four-wicket hauls against Sri Lanka before claiming his first five-for at Bogra in March 2006. If he maintains his development, he could be a godsend for Bangladesh in the coming years.
