Since Bangladesh’s entrance into Test cricket in 2000, Mashrafe Mortaza has been regarded as one of the top bowlers in the country. He is also credited as being one of the driving forces behind his country’s consistent progress in international cricket.
The young child, who was born in Narail on October 5, 1983, was known in his community for his style from an early age, earning him the nickname “Prince of Hearts.”
He originally gained notoriety in 2001 during an under-17 regional event, where he bowled quickly, hammered sixes, and displayed excellent fielding skills. Mortaza was brought into the Test squad, which was also his maiden first-class game, after Andy Roberts, Bangladesh’s coach, was pleased.
Mortaza made his Test and One-Day International debuts against Zimbabwe in 2001. He took two wickets in the first test and two in the first ODI for us.
When Bangladesh defeated India for the first time in 2004, Mashrafe rose to notoriety after taking the magnificent wickets of Virender Sehwag and MS Dhoni and making a vital 31* at the lower order.
Mortaza was the world’s leading ODI wicket-taker in 2006, with 49 wickets, including a personal best of 6/26.
The following year, he was named Man of the Match after capturing 4/38 in his side’s upset victory over India in the 2007 ICC Cricket World Cup.
Mortaza was part of Bangladesh’s first ODI triumph over the Kiwis when they toured Bangladesh in October 2008, taking 4/44.
Mashrafe and Nazmul Hossain took five wickets for six runs in 2009, plunging Sri Lanka to new lows.
He failed to bowl his quota of 10 overs owing to injury at the 2012 Asia Cup, but he finished as Bangladesh’s highest seamer with six wickets in four matches.
During the series against the West Indies in mid-2009, he was selected captain of the Bangladesh squad. The team won the game and the series, however Mashrafe was hurt in the first game and did not return to the lineup for the rest of the series. In the summer of 2010, he led Bangladesh to a victory over England in Bristol.
Mashrafe guided his country to ODI series victories against Pakistan (3-0) and India (2-1) at home following the 2015 World Cup. Bangladesh has qualified for the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy in England thanks to these results.
Mashrafe’s career and injuries were inextricably linked. The length of time he was injured accounts for the majority of his career.
Whether it was a crucial series against Pakistan in 2002 or the ICC Champions Trophy in 2006, the speedster was forced to withdraw due to injury. He eventually elected to stick to the shorter versions of the game, playing his final test against the West Indies in 2009.
In February 2009, Mortaza was recruited for $600,000 by the Kolkata Knight Riders of the Indian Premier League. He is a solid lower-order batsman who can make effective use of the long handle.
Mortaza was named captain of the Dhaka Gladiators for 45,000 USD at the first edition of the Bangladesh Premier League’s player auction, and he lived up to the honour by leading the team to victory.
Mortaza confirmed his retirement from Twenty20 internationals following the Sri Lanka tour on April 4, 2017. He did, however, decide to continue playing for his country in ODIs.
