Profile

Arafat Sunny is the classic Bangladeshi left-arm spinner, bred on limited-overs cricket. He is accurate, and uses the combination of shoulder, arm and wrist to flummox the batsman. He usually doesn't offer the batsman much room outside off stump, forcing him to search for runs on the leg side, which offers the opportunity for a return catch or one to cover or a stumping.
