Khondaker Mosharraf Hossain

Mosharraf Hossain, at the age of 23, joined the long list of left-arm spinners to play for Bangladesh when he was handed his ODI debut against South Africa. Hossain impressed during a tied warm-up game between a Bangladesh XI and a strong South African side, picking up three economical wickets, and was ushered into the national side with veteran Mohammad Rafique having recently retired. Hossain bowled alongside the two more experienced left-arm spinners, Abdur Razzak and Shakib Al Hasan, and went for 40 in six overs. Hossain made his first-class debut in 2001-02 for Dhaka Division, where he has enjoyed decent success.
