Mominul Haque is one of very few cricketers from the coastal town of Cox's Bazar, which is the country's most popular tourist destination. The laidback life in front of the world's longest sandy beach probably was never going to be Mominul's calling as he was sent to the BKSP, the country's biggest sports institute, as a cricket student. Soon he emerged as dependable left-hand batsman in age-group cricket, making his first-class debut in the 2008-09 season for Dhaka Division. He was picked in the Under-19 World Cup squad in 2010 and the following year, the National Cricket Academy called him as their 2011 graduate. He continued to progress in domestic cricket as a middle-order batsman, and was picked in the Bangladesh A team's tour to the West Indies the same year where he scored 150 in the opening match of the tour.
There were calls for his selection in the Bangladesh team during the Test series against Pakistan but it would have been too early. He finally earned his first call-up on the back of two first-class hundreds when the selectors took him as a replacement for the injured Shakib Al Hasan for the first two ODIs against West Indies in November 2012.
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
