Profile

Sanwar Hossain's stuttering international career was five years long, but it yielded only a solitary half-century - 52 against Zimbabwe in 2001 - and forties in his Test debut against New Zealand in 2001 and against Australia in 2003. Otherwise it was commonplace for a batsman like Sanwar, with front-foot preference, to have a short international career. He was given a space in the middle-order after Akram Khan retired and the selectors stopped picking Aminul Islam, but Sanwar never made the place his own, playing just nine Tests and 27 ODIs.
