Mosaddek, the new kid on the block
Holder of the record for the most number of double hundreds by a Bangladesh batsman, Mosaddek Hossain Saikat is all set to make his 50-over debut when the Tigers take on Afghanistan in the first and second ODI. The 20-year old, who made the cut as the Bangladesh Cricket Board on Thursday announced a 13-man squad for the first two ODIs, was rewarded for scoring heavily in the domestic circuit in the last couple of years. Besides his batting talents, the Mymensingh cricketer also bowls handy off-spinners and is a fantastic fielder and will no doubt be looking to hit the ground running against the Afghans.
