Mehedi Hasan Miraz has emerged as one of the brightest young stars in Bangladesh cricket. He led the country to their first appearance in an Under-19 World Cup semi-final in February 2016, before making the year more memorable with his Test debut, against England in October.
He is a batting allrounder who bowls right-arm offspin with a quiet action where he trundles to the wicket before giving a slight leap before rotating his upper body. It is a beautifully simple action that has yielded him many wickets in the U-19 and first-class level.
Born in Barisal, Mehedi grew up in Daulatpur in the outskirts of Khulna city. He learned offspin from Sheikh Salahuddin, the former Bangladesh player regarded as the best offspinner of his generation. Salahuddin passed away in October 2013.
Mehedi spent two years at the U-19 level, captaining Bangladesh to the 2014 World Cup in the UAE. He made his first-class debut in the 2014-15 National Cricket League but it was the next season's tournament when he really made a mark. Mehedi took 30 wickets at 16.43, including three five-fors. He was a star in the 2016 U-19 World Cup, with his spirit coming through as a standout part of his character.
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?
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
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
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
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
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
