TEAMS

Elias Sunny is a typical modern-day cricketer, having more strings to his bow than just one. He is a useful batsman who can bat anywhere in the order, and is a livewire in the field, but his primary suit is his left-arm spin, with which he has taken more than 200 first-class wickets. His strength is his control, and the ability to turn the ball with a round-arm action has often tricked batsmen. Sunny tends to pitch the ball up more than most spinners, and is particularly effective in one-day cricket where he's often topped the averages in the Premier League.

Originally from Chittagong but raised in Dhaka, Sunny has benefited from being a part of Dhaka's club cricket. After impressing enough to win a first-class place in the Dhaka divisional side in 2003-04, he slowly became a dependable name in Dhaka's Premier League as well as being a key performer for Dhaka and Chittagong. Though he usually bats in the lower order, Sunny has opened for Chittagong on many occasions and has also racked up first-class centuries.

After years in the fringes and a solitary call-up for the 2010 Twenty20 World Championships, Sunny was picked for the Bangladesh A team's tour to South Africa, where he impressed with his adaptability on flat tracks in the one-dayers. He finally got a chance in the national team in the Twenty20 game and Test series against West Indies in October 2011, and he justified that move by taking 6 for 94 in the first innings of the Chittagong Test, the second-best figures by a Bangladeshi on Test debut.
