Mashrafe Mortuza's playing career
Mashrafe Mortaza is one of the most successful pace bowlers in the history of Bangladesh cricket. He caught the eye of a West Indies coach when he was on the Bangladesh U-19 team. As a result of his extraordinary performance, Mashrafe has been included in the Bangladesh team. He then played a match for the Bangladesh A team and later represented Bangladesh national team directly. Mashrafe made his debut on 7 November 2001 in a Test match against Zimbabwe at the Bangabandhu National Cricket Stadium. Mashrafe's first match remained undecided due to rain. He took 4 wickets for 107 runs in his debut Test against Zimbabwe. Mashrafe then suffered a serious knee injury while playing the third Test of his career against England. As a result, he was out of cricket for almost two years. He took 4 wickets for 60 runs in the second Test against England. Mashrafe bin Murtaza was then sidelined for almost a year after being injured.
Among all the Bangladeshis, Mashrafe's bowling average is very good. Mortuza was also instrumental in Bangladesh's historic win over Australia in Cardiff. He bowled Adam Gilchrist in the Australian marquee that day and bowled 10 overs for 33 runs. At the time when Mashrafe was playing the game, there was a lack of good pace in Bangladesh.
