TEAMS

Mohammad Mithun had been a much-talked-about prodigy even before he had passed out of BKSP, the country's biggest sports institute. He started off as a wicketkeeper in age-group cricket, and has continued in the role, although his batting has always been his stronger suit.

He is a batsman who prefers to play the long innings, though he has also been known to take the aerial route as he has often batted in the top-order in limited-overs cricket.

Mithun made his first-class debut in 2006 for Khulna Division, although he remained a regular in the Bangladesh under-19 side. He played in the 2008 U-19 World Cup in Malaysia, after which he took three years to get into the next level, playing for Bangladesh A in their 2011 tour to the West Indies. He had averaged 50.81 in first-class cricket during that season, including three centuries. His next good season was 2013-14, which was also his most productive, as he scored 706 runs in nine matches.

It prompted a sudden call-up to the Bangladesh T20 side when regular wicketkeeper and captain Mushfiqur Rahim suffered a finger injury in early 2014. He was then called up to the ODI squad for the three-match series against India in June.
