TEAMS

Soumya Sarkar is a Bangladeshi allrounder, but one who bowls medium-pace rather than spin. He is predominantly a top-order batsman but his seam bowling has been termed as more than useful by many coaches in the country's age group and domestic scene.

Born in Sathikra, Soumya was admitted to the BKSP in Savar, the country's biggest sports institute. He quickly joined the cricket team and was part of BKSP's league campaigns from 2008-09 season. He played one game in the 2010 Under-19 World Cup, and two years later was an integral member of the side in Australia. In between, he struck a double-hundred in a one-day game against Qatar in Kuala Lumpur. At the 2012 Under-19 World Cup, he ruffled the feathers by Mankading Jimmy Peirson.

The left-hand batsman, however, has a bit of glamour to his batting, even at a young age. He stands up tall and takes a long stride to spinners and uses his hand-eye coordination quite well against the quicks. His medium-pace has given him a lot of attention too, particularly his ability to use the new ball despite the lack of pace.

In November 2013, he was called up to the Bangladesh Twenty20 squad but he didn't play the one-off game against New Zealand. He continued to be monitored, and when Chandika Hathurusingha, Bangladesh's new coach who took charge in May 2014, had a look at him, Soumya was back in contention.

He was handed an ODI debut against Zimbabwe in December 2014; he didn't bowl but made 20 off 18 balls.
