Profile

Akram Khan is the first real hero of Bangladesh cricket, despite the inches around his waist. A right-handed batsman, the favourite son of Chittagong was one of the mainstays of the Bangladesh team during the 1990s, a period of transition from Associate to Full Member Nation. He was part of a trio of experienced hands in the middle-order alongside Aminul Islam and Minhazul Abedin who tirelessly kept up the dream of the country one day playing in the World Cup. Akram was the percentage player who was a quick judge of the single (again, don't go by his weight) and who had an eye for the blast down the ground. He was confident while facing spin but as age set in and reflexes slowed, Akram took blows on the body in Bangladesh's new era - the era of Test cricket.
