Playing Role


For much of his career, Mosharraf Hossain was a domestic heavyweight with numerous match-winning performances in all three formats. He was Man of the Match in the 2013 BPL final and was in high demand in the Dhaka Premier League for more than a decade. He also has over 300 first-class wickets to his name. But two scarring incidents will forever be associated with this mild-mannered left-arm spinner.

A useful late-order batsman who made his first-class debut in 2001-02, he quickly established himself in the Dhaka league circuit, playing for several major clubs. After Mohammad Rafique retired in 2008, Mosharraf got his maiden call-up for Bangladesh but was discarded after three home ODIs against South Africa.

A few months later, Mosharraf was among a group of Bangladeshi cricketers who defected to the rebel Indian Cricket League and played for Dhaka Warriors. He also sent a retirement letter to the BCB, which resulted in the banning of ICL-bound cricketers for ten years. But, after Mosharraf and others quit the ICL, the BCB's clemency in 2009 allowed him to return to first-class cricket in January 2010.

Three years later Mosharraf starred for Dhaka Gladiators in the BPL final after which he was also included in the Bangladesh ODI squad in Sri Lanka the same year. But, a month later, a second major shockwave would rock his career.

Mosharraf was one of the Gladiators players and officials investigated for alleged corruption during the 2013 BPL. He was one of the first to be cleared of any wrongdoing, though, and after another comeback from a temporary suspension, Mosharraf continued to perform well in domestic cricket.

The reward was a call-up to the Bangladesh ODI squad in September 2016, against Afghanistan.
