Mehedi Maruf

Mehedi Maruf is an opening batsman with plenty of experience at U19 level, having played in eleven matches for the U19 team, however he is yet to play in a first-class fixture. His highest score is only 36, and in the recent tri-nations U19 ODI tournament featuring England and Sri Lanka in Bangladesh, he started the first 3 matches, but was then dropped, featuring in only 2 of the remaining matches. He must find his form with the bat to ensure that he is not just a squad player by the time Bangladesh arrives in Sri Lanka for the U19 World Cup.
