Profile

Not many realise that this underrated opener was the first batsman in the new millennium to carry his bat through an entire Test innings. Javed Omar is also the only Bangladeshi to have done so, in the country's first overseas Test, against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo in 2001. The feat reflects patience and perseverance at the wicket, an element that often went missing for Bangladeshi openers in the first decade of being an elite cricket nation. But the man affectionately known as Golla was never a popular choice: he was maligned as being too slow and dour with his batting, but often did the job that was required of him - see off the new-ball and stabilise the top-order.
