Profile

Curiously nicknamed 'Dickens', Faisal is a rare specialist left-hand batsman in the Bangladesh side. At 28, he was a relative latecomer when first selected for the tour to West Indies in 2003-04, but as a seasoned domestic player for Chittagong, he had hogged the headlines that season, after top-scoring with 640-odd runs in the last National Cricket League. He is a gifted timer of the ball who relies more on reflex than technique, who cemented his place with an impressive runs of scores against the touring Zimbabwe A team.
