Though he hails from Jessore, Tushar Imran was a product of the neighbourhood Academy system of Dhaka when he rose from the Dhanmondi Club as a batsman who had shots all around the wicket. He was one of the young talents when he emerged in the early 2000s, making it to the Bangladesh team in 2001 for an ODI against Zimbabwe. The next month, in January 2002, he struck 65 against Pakistan and followed it up with 61 against Sri Lanka a few months later. Sadly for him, those were the best scores he could muster at the top level.
He went on to be picked for five more years but the last time he played for Bangladesh was in New Zealand in late 2007, when he had admitted that this could be his final chance.
He is still playing first-class cricket for Khulna, closing in on 100 first-class matches for his home division.
