Profile

Impish and impulsive, Habibul Bashar has the style and strokes of a genuine Test player. Most of his runs come from cultured drives through midwicket, and most of his dismissals from a Hilditch-style addiction to the hook. Before Bangladesh's inaugural Test, 'Sumon' promised he would kick the habit, but although he made 71 and 30 he was still out hooking ... twice. But it was his enterprise in the first innings that gave the world a glimpse of what was to be expected of a Bangladesh batsman in the next decade, and he remained the most consistent one for seven years.
