Mushfiqur Rahim

As of right now, Mushfiqur Rahim is the second-most successful batsman for his country, having scored 7187 runs, including 9 centuries and 44 fifties in 248 ODIs, with a strike rate of 79.69. With 877 runs in 29 matches at a strike rate of 79.71, the veteran is his team’s second-leading run scorer in ODI World Cups.

Hasan Mahmud

Hasan Mahmud is one of the promising pace bowlers who have raised hopes for a fast bowling revolution in Bangladesh, after decades of relying on spin. Mahmud has just played one T20I for Bangladesh and received his first ODI call-up in January 2021, so he is still in the very early stages of his career. 

Nevertheless, the coaches for Bangladesh have already heaped praise on him as he can bowl fast as well as accurately.
