Mash completes 17 years in international cricket

Mash completes 17 years in international cricket

Bangladesh’s ODI skipper, Mashrafe Bin Mortaza marked his 17 years of international-level cricket yesterday, making his debut on November 8, 2001 against Zimbabwe in Dhaka.    

Mashrafe Bin Mortaza epitomised the term ‘bursting onto the scene’. He was the first genuine fast bowler to emerge from Bangladesh since their entry into Test cricket in 2000.

His entry was met with heaps of enthusiasm.

His talents with the ball were noticed by West Indian great Andy Roberts, who proclaimed that Mashrafe had a great future. But After his Test debut, injuries started wreaking havoc and he found himself making one comeback after the other. Injuries to his back and knee forced him to miss most of the action, but he came back stronger each time and gave his best. He has had several operations on his legs, knees and ankles but his untamable spirit made him into a leader.   

Mashrafe rose to prominence in 2004, when he helped Bangladesh beat India for the first time. His four-wicket haul again destroyed India in the 2007 World Cup game at Port-of-Spain. He was the highest wicket-taker in ODI in the calendar year of 2006, with 49 wickets.   

He was made captain in 2009 but in his first Test in charge, injured his knee and returned the next year, leading Bangladesh to a win against England in the summer of 2010 before falling to injury once again in his home debut as captain, against New Zealand. He missed the 2011 World Cup after yet another knee injury, but has since made a successful return in the 2012 Asia Cup.
