Mashrafe Mortaza: First genuine paceman, led his country to glory

Mashrafe Bin Mortaza

Mashrafe Mortaza was born on October 5, 1983 in Norail, Jessore. 

Fast and aggressive, Mashrafe Mortaza emerged as the leader of Bangladesh's pack of upcoming next generation of young pacemen. He won his first Test cap against Zimbabwe at Dhaka in 2001 which was also his first-class debut.

In 2006, Mortaza broke Aftab Ahmed's national record when he took 6 for 26 to seal a 3-0 win in the one-day series against Kenya in Nairobi.

In the 2007 World Cup, Mortaza took a four-wicket haul at Port of Spain to send the fancied Indians crashing out of the cup.

After Bangladesh's disappointing campaign in the 2008 World Twenty20, he was named captain for the tours of West Indies and Zimbabwe. His first term ended after just one Test, when he limped off after bowling 6.3 overs in the first Test against West Indies at Kingstown.

One of Bangladesh's most successful right arm seamers, Mashrafe Mortaza has been one of the reasons for his country's steady rise in international cricket. A bowler who can stir up quite a pace, Mortaza's success has been curbed on a few occasions due to his persistent injury woes.

He regained the captaincy in 2014 and moulded a fractured Bangladesh team into a force in the ODI and T20 formats. During the 2015 World Cup, Mortaza led from the front as the team celebrated their greatest World Cup moment – a place in the quarter-finals for the first time, after a shock 15-run win over England in Adelaide.
