A promising medium-pace bowler who was discovered at 17, Alauddin Babu's most conspicuous cricketing act so far has been to concede the most expensive List A over of all time, when he gave away 39 in a Dhaka Premier League match.
He first earned attention in 2008, when he took an eight-wicket haul in Dhaka's First Division League, which is the level just below the Premier League. He was immediately fast-tracked to the Bangladesh Under-19 team the same year, and he played in the 2010 Youth World Cup in New Zealand.
Earmarked as a future prospect, and consequently selected for the National Cricket Academy in 2010, he made his first-class debut for Rajshahi Division, and then moved to Rangpur when the region became a divisional cricket team the following year.
Seam-bowling allrounders are rare in Bangladesh, which is an advantage to Alauddin, who is also known as a big-hitting lower-order batsman. But he has struggled with injuries lately. A likable character, Alauddin will need all the support he can get to recover from the 39-runs in an over debacle.
Stats highlights from the fourth day in Ranchi, where Cheteshwar Pujara batted for ages and the Australians toiled like they haven't had to in many years
For the third time this home season, the team took the lead after its opposition put up 400 batting first but the Ranchi effort was special
Did Virat Kohli get his tactics right on the final day in Ranchi? Going by his fast bowlers' lines and R Ashwin's late introduction, the Indian captain took a few puzzling calls
On a pitch most suited for him on this tour, David Warner, the T20-specialist-turned-Test star, got his eye in and then played a wasteful shot. The grown-up knock came from another T20 specialist, instead: Glenn Maxwell
Sudhir Gautam, uber Tendulkar fan, is now rooting for a new sport
Three days ahead of the fourth Test, the surface at the HPCA Stadium wore a smattering of grass. Will that, or Mohammed Shami's availability, subject to fitness, change India's combination?
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
