Profile

Imrul Kayes is one half of Bangladesh's most successful opening partnership in Tests and ODIs. The other half is Tamim Iqbal, their most prolific opener. The pair holds the world record for the highest second-innings opening stand in Test cricket, which they achieved against Pakistan in 2015, when they stitched together 312, breaking a 55-year record set by Colin Cowdrey and Geoff Pullar in 1960.
