Profile

Taijul Islam is another in a long line of left-arm spinners that Bangladesh have produced, but in his first international season he has come up with two outstanding displays which have made him stand out. In only his third Test, against ZImbabwe in Mirpur, he took 8 for 39, the best figures by a Bangladesh bowler in Tests. A month later, making his ODI debut against the same opponents at the same venue, he took a hat-trick, becoming the first bowler ever to take a hat-trick on ODI debut.
